Two years ago we came down here to Miami to visit my parents and spent the entire visit sitting by the hospital bed of my father wondering if he would make it through another day. It was touch and go there for a while and we were grateful for the time we had with each other. Perhaps it was the memory of those days that made yesterday so much sweeter. Yesterday my family and close friends gathered around, just like we did two years ago, but this time we were there to celebrate a momentous occasion. Yesterday we surprised my parents with a small but special 50th anniversary brunch. It was a wonderful day filled with laughter, good food, and lots and lots of love. Words cannot begin to describe the pure joy I have to be able to have celebrated with them. And to have my children there to share it… even more the special. And Jay understood just how important a day this was. Not one meltdown or complaint. He was so good and so very social and happy! It truly was a great day and now we have a much better and HAPPIER memory to replace the one from two years ago… the last time we all were together sitting around in the same room.
