Grands 50th Wedding Anniversary
This past weekend was my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary. 50 years of marriage!!! Wow, look at God! I can't even imagine being 50 years old lol. But I'm so glad that God has blessed them...it couldn't have been easy, but it's encouraging to see that it is possible to be married "til death do us part."
I'm glad my family was getting together to appreciate my grandparents while they are still alive and not waiting until their homecoming service. Too many people wait until it's too late to say what they want to say to a person.
The celebration was so much fun. The theme was 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary. We decorated the room with gold and lavender accents. People from both my grandpa's side and my grandma's side of the family came.
I got a chance to dedicate one of my paintings to them...I teared up during my little speech, which took me by surprise lol...But it was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed myself so much. It was like a mini family reunion. It was awesome. My sis did a liturgical dance to patty labelle's when you've been loved, feels like heaven dedicated to our granparents. Family's just so awesome.
I love my fam so much, I know they have my back for everything. They are always encouraging and saying how proud of me they are, and I love them all to death. I just thank God for blessing me with the family I have, because not everybody has it like that. I don't take any one of them for granted.
