62 Years of Thanksgiving

Mom and Dad celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary yesterday and today is Thanksgiving.  The Ziglar family has so much to be thankful for!  But nothing sums it up better than this: 

 

Yesterday I watched as Dad spent nearly 10 minutes writing Mom a special note on the anniversary card he gave her.  After 62 years he still wanted it to be “just right.”  When I saw Mom’s eyes light up when she got the card, I knew once again that spending a few extra minutes making things “just right” is worth every minute. 

 

Mom then wanted to display the card and as you may know they are selling their house.  The book shelves in the family room are cleaned out getting ready for the move, but now standing proudly all alone on those shelves for everyone to see (even the prospective home buyers who are coming through the house) is the card from Dad.

 

Why don’t you spend a few extra minutes this Thanksgiving making things “just right” with those you love?

    Tom, it’s not nice to make your elderly sister cry on Thanksgiving morning. Such a sweet and tender message. I’ll see what I can do “just right” today. Thank you for your inspiration, Tom.

    I love you!

    What a beautiful post! Congratulations to your parents. 62 years!

    This post is also a perfectly timed reminder for me too as I’m sending out some promotional materials and I know it makes a big difference to the recipient to have a genuine, personal thought hand written about them, to them.
