Anniversaries: My Parents’ Wedding Anniversary Is Today!

Kathleen and Ben Robledo.

Since my parents are both still alive, I won’t share their marriage year or Mom’s maiden name, but many decades ago today, my folks got hitched. And they are still madly in love. Their marriage is an example to us all, and set a very high bar for us kids to follow.

Most kids jokingly celebrate their parents’ anniversary by thanking them, since many wouldn’t be here today if their parents had not married. Not so with me…I was adopted. So, I would have been born anyway, even if Kathleen and Ben had not married. But, my life would have been completely different — I can’t even even imagine in what ways. Because I have the best parents in the world, and I had the best childhood in the world.

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad. I love you! And I love how you love each other.
