Forty two years ago today my parents were married. For the last 9 years this anniversary has largely gone uncelebrated and perhaps even forgotten by choice. I never mentioned it to my Dad. I did not want to make him feel any more loss than he already felt. He didn't always remember the day of the week or the date so it seemed compassionate to let the day go by without notice. Today I have thought of my parents a lot. In my mind I picture them celebrating their special day together again after being separated for so many years.
Happy 42nd anniversary Mum and Dad. May you dance among the stars together for now and always. I love you and miss you both every day.
