Thirty Days of Me...Day 4...My Parents

Day 4 of the Thirty Days of Me is about my parents.  Let's see, my dad's name is Tommy and my mother's is Sherree.  They met when my dad was stationed in Lubbock, and visited my mother's church.  I'm pretty sure they were smitten with each other from the get go, but I don't remember all the details.  Here's a picture from their honeymoon.

Dates are not my specialty, but I do know that one day this month, I think it's the 12th, they'll celebrate their 37th anniversary.  My dad retired from the Air Force as a Major my senior year in highschool and my mother was usually a stay at home momma.  While I'm a little prejudice, I'm pretty sure that I've got the best parents ever put on the earth!  They raised me and my sister in a home filled with acceptance and unconditional love.

  1. Your parents make such a cute couple!!! I see where you got your beauty!!! You Mom looks like a doll!!! It's true, Sherree!!!! :)

  2. Wonderful parents you have. They are a very handsome couple. My parents were older when they had me. My Dad is now 88 and he retired from the Air Force also as a Lt. Col. My Mom passed away about 8 years ago. They had celebrated 50 years of marriage. They met in a bar when my Dad went up to her at the bar. He asked her if the gum she was chewing was good. So funny!

    And I had the best parents in the world!!! hahaha!

  3. It was easy being good parents when we had a daughters like you and your sister. Thanks for the sweet words. I love you, Mother
