Where I'm From

I am from the country girl,
and the city boy

I am from the high school sweethearts
but don't ask about math class

I am from the Miller's and the Zajicek's
from Tom and Jackie

I am from the working parents
with one always home

I am from the wish we hads, and had it then
to the sit down and shut up

I am from the stubborn and the proud

I am from the garden
and the flower beds

I am from horse shows every weekend
and marching band on Friday nights

I am from family dinners
Christmas Eve at Grandma's

From Grandparent's lost and
ones still alive
I am from 39 years today
of the love of my parents

Today my parents celebrate 39 years of marriage. While that is rare for today, my parents are still going strong and still in love today as much as they were 39 years ago when they said I do. There have been hard times and good times, times when they worried about us kids, and times when we all didn't get along, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad! I love you!!

Christmas 2008

PS: Stop by my mom's blog to see a picture of their wedding day and a giveaway!
