A Perfect Pair

These two make me happy...
and they make other people happy, too!

My mom and her wonderful husband, who has been in our family since 1972 and is loved by all of us as both father and grandfather, are just about the best-matched pair I've ever seen. We are grateful every day that she "found" him, for there are few never-before-married bachelors who could have taken on a family of 5 children (and eventually, 15 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren) so flawlessly. This year, they will add three more lucky grandkids to the mix (my brother is marrying into these little cuties), and Grandma and Grandpa couldn't be more excited about stepping into that role! Yep, this delightful duo wrote the book on being the best parents and grandparents ever, and every member of our family loves them dearly.

Darlene said...

Oh Sue, you are something else. Of course I am crying and really, what kind of a comment could I possibly make to this kind of a tribute? All I can say is thank you for being our daughter. You make it very easy for both of us to love you. We have the greatest family ever and each day I thank my Heavenly Father for my wonderful family. What a greata joy you all are to me. And to think at one time I was afraid I never would have even one child. I am truly blessed.

Your mom makes ME happy, and I've not even met her! She just exudes a zest for life that is so attractive. Which I assume is where you get it. They're a cute couple, aren't they?

Sue! I am happily dropping by to return the favor of the visit. I love your picture and the story that went with it,and I LOVE the music on your blog. Usually, I'm not a big fan of music on blogs, but that is one of my all-time FAVORITE songs!
