Happy Anniversary!

November 26, 2009

Today Mom and Dad celebrate their 63rd wedding anniversary.  It’s such a big day that our entire nation decided to honor them by having Thanksgiving on the same day, and not to be out done, Jerry Jones got involved and is hosting a Cowboys football game so that Dad can really have the perfect afternoon! (LOL)  Yes, it truly is an anniversary to be thankful for!

Yesterday I had the privilege of watching Dad sign the anniversary card he gave Mom.  I took a picture of the envelope so you could see his personalized message.  Amazing how a few minutes and a few thoughts can turn a blank piece of paper into a treasure.

Here is Mom opening and reading the card.

What are you thankful for today?  Take a few minutes and make a phone call or send a note to a friend or loved one and let them know what they mean to you.

Many people are Embracing their Struggles today, and for them a little extra love and encouragement from you might make all of the difference.  We have some good friends, Michael and Brenda Pink, who are going through a health struggle right now.  Would you remember Brenda in your prayers?

Thanks everyone from making this blog one of the most fulfilling things I do!  If you want to leave Mom and Dad a happy anniversary greeting, just comment below and I will make sure they get it.

62 Years of Thanksgiving

November 27, 2008

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?
