Yesterday would have been Mom and Dad’s 60th wedding anniversary. I had almost forgotten but of course Mom didn’t. She had planned ahead almost a year ago. She and Dad loved to go to Beef and Boards. It is a local dinner theater. Last August before Dad passed she had reserved today to go. She knew a year ago that Dad could not attend with her but rather than sit home sad about her situation she planned ahead. She took a girlfriend today and they had a great time: great friends, great food, great entertainment. What great planning.
Last year us kids threw them a 59th anniversary party. We knew it was an odd time to plan a party but we did. We had a great time and Dad was having a great day. One of the last really good days he had. We are so glad we celebrated this event with them. Today was another first without Dad but Mom did well. I’m glad she has adjust so well and continues to move forward.
