Random Moments of Delight #28: Celebrating Family

I am in Colorado celebrating my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary today with family from all over the country (ah, the miracle of auto-posting).

There are many delights connected with this milestone. All sorts of family have come for the event and I’m seeing people I haven’t seen in years (except on Facebook 😉 ); we’re in Estes Park, a beautiful part of Colorado; this is the first time most of my relatives have met my new(ish) husband Tim, and my youngest son is here from Bakersfield, CA.

Of course the biggest delight is helping my parents’ celebrate 60 years together.

My folks at their wedding 60 years ago.

Farwell Family

My birth family in the 1960’s: Dad, Mom, me (aka FireBonnet), and my two brothers.

I have abiding love, affection and respect for my parents. They have given me a most precious gift, an understanding that life is a joyful experience and meant to be lived fully.


Mom and Dad’s 50th wedding anniversary 10 years ago. Back row: my late husband, myself, #1 brother and his wife and #2 brother. Front row: Dad and Mom (and the goofy guy in the middle is my youngest son).

It’s been 10 years since the picture above and the group is a little different… I have a new husband, #1 brother and his wife have a 10-year-old daughter, and my youngest is probably taller than all of us! But the joy of gathering and helping my parents celebrate a full and satisfying marriage hasn’t changed.

As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day. :D

    I’ve always loved that shot as well Genevieve! Although it is a professional shot it has such a spontaneous look to it.

    I can’t take credit for the photos or the family, but thanks my friend. I’m a lucky girl to have such a terrific family.
