So I mentioned in my previous post that my parents still slow dance together. Well, I found pictorial evidence!

When I was younger, I thought it was kind of lame. But now that I can appreciate romance, I think it’s fantastic. My parents have been through a great deal together over the course of 38 years, five kids, and four grandchildren. They have made it through the storms and here they are, still dancing. That in itself is remarkable.
I agree with my dad wholeheartedly when he commented, “I would add to your list of tips, however, a good, loving and caring husband.”

That can be hard to find and Lord knows many women try and try. But when you find the person who’s perfect for you, your soul mate – that can only make life more beautiful.

Thanks to all of you for your kind comments about my mom! Reading them made her day. And yes, I will hug her when I see her – for Christmas in Trinidad. I can’t wait!

How right your Dad is, and how blessed I am to have married (24 years) the kind of man your Dad described. Your parents sound like real treasures.

So beautiful! Bella I felt the same way you did when I was younger but now that I'm "grown" I treasure those memories..That is a beautiful picture..I wholeheartedly agree with your Dad. I'll be married for 3 years on the 22nd to a wonderful, loving man. I pray that God blesses us with as many years as your lovely parents. Your mother is gorgeous!!! She looks better than women 20-30 years younger than her..I'm serious!! Its that clean living and fresh island air! At least that what I think. (smile) My mother is from Bermuda so that's what my aunts always said about why island folks look so fantastic. You are blessed indeed! Give them a hug from me at Christmas, too!

that was just beautiful...i know i have something like that to look forward to. marriage in itself is hard work...each partner contributing..not just financially...but emotionally and spiritually. Raising children together...different views...all kinds of stuff...but the biggest is COMPROMISING!!! When you know you are right and your partner is not...but you bend a little...or a lot!! Marriage is for the strong....and only the strong survive!!!

I as well as my buddies were found to be going through the nice hints found on your site and then all of a sudden I got a terrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the blog owner for those techniques. All the men became as a result thrilled to read all of them and have in effect in truth been taking pleasure in those things. Thank you for simply being quite helpful and then for going for variety of terrific subject matter most people are really desperate to be aware of. Our own sincere regret for not saying thanks to earlier.
