My Mother turned 80 today. My Father was 84 on 1-25. How lucky am I?
I cannot believe that both my parents made it past 80 years old. They are so happy. I told them the other day that i felt I was witnessing what it must have been for them at 20.
I remember when Dad came home from Italy, after the Kennedy assassination; The same night “Wizard of Oz” was broadcast on TV for the 1st time. During a commercial in the epic broadcast; I noticed Dad had come home but, I had no one in the family room with me.
I went in to my grandparents formal living room and it was like…in a movie; Mom was kissing Daddy. Sorry. Just a great memory. I am proud of my parents and relieved that I can still share time with them.
Thanks for reading my testimonial.
