Celebrating the years..

Posted by Pepper on May 7, 2011

Today, my mama and my papa celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. That seems like a very big number to me. I have so much to say about them, but for a change, I will restrain. Here’s a toast, celebrating the wonderful years they’ve had and hoping they’ll have many more!

I think they’ve been the best parents ever. In my eyes, they’re ideal. Parenting is tough. You never know the outcome of your effort until your children are grown up individuals. You might be rewarded by their love or they might hate you for your ways. Worse still, they might turn out very detached. It’s a complicated journey. I think my parents have been perfect. They’ve given me a brilliant childhood. They’ve given me all their support. At the same time they’ve set limits. And now they’re my best friends. If their 25 year old daughter is this crazy about them, this devoted to them, then I know they’ve certainly done somethings right. I hope to have kids sometime in the future, and it scares me. I only hope my 25 year old feels for me, what I feel for my parents.

    In the meantime… a standing ovation to your parents from my end! 30 years of togetherness deserves a salute…! 🙂

  17. Deboshree said

    Oh a huge congratulations to your parents for so many years of togetherness! God bless them with many more years of love and happiness. 😀

    Oh man, parenting must surely be tough. You never know what could happen – what you’re doing right – or wrong. There’s a reason God made parents; he must have endowed them with special skills. 🙂

    • Pepper said

      Parenting is so tough really.. but I know so many parents who do what they think is the best for the child.. but in the child’s eyes they’ve screwed up big time! I don’t think I have any special skills and I wonder if they’ll just appear the moment we become parents.. so it scares me all the more.. 🙂
      Thanks for the wishes 🙂

  18. Happy Anniversary to your Mom and Dad, You mom looks so pretty, so you look like your mom or dad?

    A very happy wedding anniversary to them. I know that with role models like them your 25 year old would look at you with the same pride and love you look at them. 🙂

    PS: Tell me the pic is yours and not your mom’s else I will drown myself before I go hit the gym like a madwoman.
