On April 17th, my parents celebrate 54 years of marriage. Full of spunk and life, my mom is the ever-ready bunny and never stops MOVING, while my dad is her anchor and enjoys a good book snuggled up with his four-legged best friend, Molly. Together my parents have weathered decades of joys and heartache; trials and triumphs, leaving a legacy behind for their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
That legacy is FAITHFULNESS.
Even when the waters were choppy and the road seemed impassable, my folks weathered every storm and stayed together. While loving and serving one another unconditionally, these two will make anyone laugh till your side hurts. Our kids will randomly just start laughing as we recall comedic stories my parents have lived! (Ask them to tell you about one early morning broken car horn and a convertible!) It will leave you in stitches.
Most importantly, my parents have modeled for me and my kids what it means to stay.
And for that I am forever grateful.
Happy Anniversary Ken and Nancy Bowen.
You are LOVED!!!
