A LETTER TO MY PARENTS ON THEIR 60TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY - AND, HE WENT TO JAREDS!



JIMMIE LEE ROGERS AND GENIVE WALKER
February 13, 1951

♥  Mom is preggers with ME  ♥
Dear Mom and Dad:

It wasn't until Destini came along that I realized what it means to be a "parent."  I now reflect seriously on the sacrifices you both made and the challenges you confronted in raising your children. 

You straightforwardly taught me right from wrong, good from bad, decent from indecent.  But it’s in learning these vital ethics---having them etched into my mind---that I grew to be respectable, responsible, productive, and a decent adult. 

You taught me that the big tough world out there rewards hard work, education, and honesty.  You taught me to be proud of who I am and never to envy what others possess.  You taught me where you both came from and the struggles it took to get you out of there. 



I thank you for taking me to church every Sunday, and every year to Vacation Bible School; and also for the day of my baptism.  I learned about belief in God and that He is our Heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally---like a parent---we are sinners, we will make mistakes; but we will be Forgiven. 

I can't remember a time when we didn't have more than enough.  It would be selfish of me to say anything different. 

Though you are both in heaven now, my love for you is still as STRONG.  I hear your voices when I need advice.  I feel your arms around me when I need comfort.

Everything I am and everything I do always reflects on my upbringing, therefore I will TRY to be the best at parenting as the both of you were to me.  

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad, 

        I LOVE YOU, JUDY 




Dad, Mom, and Grandpa Walker - mom still preggers with my ME!



HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MOM AND DAD!

So it hadn't occurred to me until late this last week when I decided to do my blog for my parents anniversary that the 60th Wedding Anniversary gift is "white diamonds."  I guess after 60 years, a gal, or guy, would deserve that (I mean lets be really honest, to live together for 60 years with your significant other, nothing else would or could do)...I'm jus sayin!
Now my husband is a romantic, but he's NOT that romantic that he would know what was the appropriate and traditional 60th Wedding Anniversary gift, nor would I even expect him to know that.  But it just so happens that I got my Valentine's gift early this last week from him, talk about a coincidence.  I swear I just know that my MOM is always in the heavens looking out for me (my guardian angel in heaven and on earth), and she is making sure I received the last pieces of my puzzle after she was gone.  Though Destini is my biggest gift from heaven, mom always used to kid about wanting her "Alexis Carrington (Joan Collins)" diamonds, and I think she wanted to make sure that although she didn't get hers, I got mine...


As you might recall, my original wedding rings were recently stolen from our home.  Somehow it is hard to feel the same way about your rings, even if you get them back, after someone violated them.  They just don't seem so sacred to me anymore.  That probably isn't the best way to feel, but for right now, I just plain do!!!!  Okay, I really don't want to take this happy moment away with this nonsense!!!

I am truly grateful and blessed that it was so important to Mr. Camel to "right someone elses wrong," so that I felt WHOLE again.    


AND IT DOESN'T HURT THAT THEY'RE
GORGEOUS!

SIDEBAR:  Though I have no idea if he went to Jared's, and since they are so beautiful, plus I asked and he wouldn't tell, it really doesn't matter what jeweler he picked...HE PICKED THE RIGHT ONE!  

♥I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL VALENTINE'S DAY♥
