Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

Sorry, I’m a little late getting to this challenge, this holiday threw us a curve.  Mother had a heart attack Wednesday before Thanksgiving, had stents placed, and is already home doing remarkably well.  This photo is her and dad taken the first year of their marriage almost 60 years ago.  The bottom photo was taken this Spring.  I have many things for which I am truly thankful, but regardless of health and quality of life issues, I am most thankful they are still with us.

    You are very lucky to still have both your parents. Hope your mom is recovered now. My mom had the same op a couple of years ago, and seems to be fine. :)
