Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad

16 Sep


Once upon a time, there was a cute little boy and a cute little girl.  They grew up relatively in the same area not too far away from each other.


 You know what they say about three degrees of separation?  It was the same in this situation.  They knew some of the same people.  He went to a private Christian school that she attended church at during the week.  They ate at some of the same restaurants. For all they knew, they might have passed each other during their childhood.  It was possible.

They grew up,  went through school and college.  Until one day, the girl applied for a job at a business that changed the course of her life.  She was interviewed by the mother of the boy who took an immediate liking to the girl.  In fact the liking was so much that the mother hired the girl for the job having a secret agenda.  The secret agenda was to have her son meet this girl and fall in love.

The mother introduced them and they went to lunch together for the first time on September 14,  1988.  It was an immediate chemistry and love was in the air.  The young boy courted the young girl throughout the years doing everything together.  There would be times that one wanted to get married but the other didn’t at the time and vice versa.  Not that they didn’t love each other but because they had things they wanted to get done first.  You know the things in life like finishing college and getting a solid paying job.  But throughout this time, families merged and got to know each other.

The young couple courted for 16 years.  Yes my friends, that is not a typo.  Life was good.  What was the rush?  They grew up and got set in their ways.  She bought a home and was taking care of herself and he was taking care of his parents and helping them.

Then on Valentine’s day February 14, 2004, the young man got down on one knee and asked THE question, “Will you marry me?”  The young girl was shocked and amazed.  Her response, “What’s the rush?”  A sense of humor that has maintained throughout their relationship – that’s a good thing.

The young girl accepted.  A date was discussed.  Sadly, the mother of the young man had passed away over the years.  In honor of her, they made a date for September 15, 2004.


Now, this is the fun part.  Two lives merged as one into ONE household.  They said their I do‘s and moved in together for the first time.  What a wake up call!  PLOL (pig laughing out loud).  

Today marks their 13th wedding anniversary or 29 years of being together.  Was it easy – nope.  Has their been good times and bad times – of course.  Every marriage has bumps in the road.  It’s how you travel over the bumps to the other side that makes a long lasting relationship.  It also helps that both of them have a really wicked sense of humor.  I mean look at me.  Who do you know would adopt a pig in their lives?  Enough said on that.

So today, we at the Hotel Thompson would like to wish mom and dad a Happy Anniversary.  Here’s to another 29 years of being together!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

    Happy anniversary. I’m glad it worked out for you two. I dated a girl for over 10 years before we got married. We were seperated two years later.

    Mom and I wish your Mom and Dad a very Happy Anniversary. Thanks for the story and all the great photos. Mom says that if they could stay friends, courting for SIXTEEN years, they will most certainly be together until the end of time.
    Woof! TINK
