30 Word Thursday


                                                            Wedding Day

                                                           Young love
                                                          Frozen in time
                                                      Their lives together
                                                         Ahead of them
                                             Children, moves, change, suffering.

                                                     My parents in 1950
                                                 United on their wedding day
                                                Smiling, hoping, dreaming
                                                    Of their marriage ahead.



This photo is one of my favourites of my parents. They look so young. My mom was 21 and my father 27. He was a widower with a young son and my mom would take him on as her won and then have 4 more children. She was only 43 when my dad died and raised her children on her own, never remarrying.

Exquisitely beautiful! They don't make wedding gowns like this any more. Your parents are so happy looking. The beginning of a life together. I love the photo.

Thank you for sharing a piece of your personal history. It was beautiful! I look back on the lives of my parents and my grandparents and I think… how did they do it? They overcame so much.
