Default 70 years

We just celebrated my grandparents' 70th anniversary this weekend...he's 92, she's 88. There were streams of folks that showed up at the reception, both family and friends from years past, and the party lasted well into the evening. They are two of the sweetest, most loving and just best people that I've ever known....there is so much I could say about each of them, but in short, my entire family and I have been abundantly blessed by them.

Time sure does fly and it's always good to remember your blessings and people who have been in your life that have helped to mold and shape you. Chime in and feel free to share about someone else you know that have stayed the course in marriage for many years and/or just someone that has been a blessing to you or made a great impact on who you are.
