Happy Anniversary P.S. I Love You

This post is a tribute to my wonderful parents and their 50th wedding anniversary. It sounds like the same old cliche to say that I couldn't have asked for better parents, so I won't say that. I could have asked for better parents but they would not have been found, because I don't believe I could have two better people to be my parents. I am so proud of them and honored that they have chosen to stay together for all these years. They have made our family the special unit that it is today and made us (their children) the adults we are today. It is because of the love and support, that they showed each other and their children, that made myself and my siblings into doting parents and committed spouses. Please help me wish them a Happy Anniversary by leaving a little note at the end of this post.
I would like to end this post with my favorite family quote.
"Other things may change us, but we start and end with family".

  1. Happy Anniversary!! To Mya's amazing parents!! now, I must say... Coming from a family where my parents have been married for about 40 years...

    I will say this. The profound sense of family and love. Of caring and teaching, leaves such an incredible imprint on a child of parents who stay together for so long...

    Through my parents, I learned to love, to deal with obstacles, but to stick together, and work things out...

    So, I can say, from my own experience, that you have given your children a life long gift... A gift with no words... A gift so deep, that it can only be held within the heart and looked upon with so many amazing feelings, including, admiration...

  2. Happy Happy 50 th. That is so wonderful..This day and medical age,,may you have 50 more..My parents are on their 65th year...Just act like teen-agers but get a few naps too..May your years ahead be filled with love, happiness, good health and lots of family. Sincerely, Diana B.

  3. Happy Anniversary to Mya's parents! Fifty years is a special time - enjoy the rest of your lives together!

  6. Mom and Dad-
    Happy Anniversary… and Thank You! Thank you for giving us such a wonderful life. It is so hard to express emotions that go so deep. There are almost no words to describe the love and gratitude that I feel when reflecting on my life and how much I owe to you both. Your influences on my life are immeasurable. You helped me to become who I am today – as a person, a spouse, and a parent. All the riches in the world could not compare to the wealth of love, wisdom and guidance that you have shown. Nothing speaks louder than example, and we were blessed to have yours to model. Your impact can be seen in all of our lives: your children, your grandchildren and now your precious new great granddaughter – and it will continue for generations to come. Thanks you. This is a day of celebration for all of us.
    Love, Cindy

  20. An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow. ~Author Unknown. Happy 50th Anniversary to your parents Mya.

  21. Congratulations, Uncle Chuck and Aunt Phyllis! For fifty years, your example of love, companionship, fun and friendship has enriched our entire family. You two are a major part of so many of my life's favorite memories. Your willingness to help me (and others), without even being asked, has been a constant source of comfort and a rare gift.

    You may not realize how special I think you are as individuals and how truly amazing you have always been as a couple. You are a gift to my life and all who love you.

    Through the years, it's been an honor to be your niece and I am glad to help honor you as you celebrate your landmark 50th anniversary.

    With admiration and love,

  22. Truly blessed is our family to have Chuck & Phyllis in our midst. Your role as brother and sister-in-law, first, has always been strong and loving, not only as relatives, but wonderful friends to us.

    Cindy, Kelly, and Steve are the recipients of outstanding guidance by such caring parents. This shows by how they live their lives today.

    We remember so much fun over the years with you both and look forward to even more.

    Thanks, Chuck and Phyllis, for always being there, helping and guiding us all.

    Your love is so apparent by the respect shown to each other. You have taught how togetherness and concern supports a 50 year marriage.

    Congratulations and love,
    Janet and Bruce
