A Very Special Anniversary

Today is the most significant date in my life ~ the anniversary of the beginning of my world. 

70 years ago today my WP's met for the very first time, a momentous event!

You hear about those chance meetings, love at first sight etc, this is how their story began ~
Dad agreed to accompany a friend of his who was too nervous about going on his date alone and that's where they met, my Dad, and his friend's date.  Short and sweet, with no hard feelings from the forsaken friend. 
I discovered a saying that relates perfectly to this, to them and to us ~

"The roots of a family tree begin with the love of two hearts"

This beautiful couple are responsible for 11 children, with 10 partners/spouses, 21 grandchildren currently with 9 partners/spouses and 14 great grandchildren - 65 lives growing from a chance meeting.  We are very fortunate to have grown from these great roots.

Happy Anniversary Folks
