During my many days at home in May, I took time to read a book that my parents had written. It's a collection of their life's stories and is truly a wonderful gift. I learned a lot about both of my parents, many things that I didn't previously know. They shared stories about their upbringing; courtship; marriage; travels; accomplishments; and more. Each day, they are edging closer to 90 and have been married for 68 years. They've certainly seen a lot in their lifetime, most of it side by side! I will always treasure the book that they've written -- which was only given to their children. It was a project that they wanted to accomplish so that their stories would be known not only by their children, but also by their grandchildren... and generations to come.
After a year of writing and editing, they completed the book. My Dad said, "Creating this book was a daunting project... we faced it just like we have faced everything through life, together and with the single purpose of finishing what we started." My parents have certainly faced every challenge by each other's side. This book is yet another result of their commitment.
