Invest

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Invest wisely, but by all means invest. For many, it’s hard to focus for 54 days, much less 54 years. Thanks Mom and Dad for modeling commitment, caring and devotion through 54 years, despite what life brings, always with a sense of humor and grounded by faith. Never perfect but always persevering. Patience, kindness, honor, trust, hope. Looking at this photo reminds me of how quickly time moves. Invest your time well and enjoy life now.

    A beautiful post. My parents were also great role models for what it takes to have a lasting and loving relationship – through good times and bad. They loved each other deeply till the days of their deaths. My Mother’s love for my Dad lived on many years after his death, and it makes my heart smile knowing that they are now together once again.
