'Kismet' 68th Heavenly Anniversary

I believe in 'Kismet'...a power that is believed to control what happens in the future.
On January 6, 1947 Thelma received this card from her husband who was stationed in Japan.  With a smile on her face and her hand resting on her soon to be born baby, she let the tears flow.  It was their First Wedding Anniversary.  They were thousands of miles apart.  Yet she felt him in her heart and in her being for she was carrying their first child.
Today, January 6, 2014, Willard and Thelma are celebrating their
 68th Anniversary together in Heaven
after being apart for twenty-six years. 
For over Forty Years their first born child celebrated their Wedding Anniversary with them by being there or sending a card...afterall she was there for the First Anniversary.  In the last twenty-six years since Willard received his probably 'NotSoSaintly Wings', Thelma continued to receive a card, a phone call or a letter on January 6th from her 'First Born'.
So, on this 6th day of January, 2014 the tradition continues....just with a slightly different delivery method with a Kismet Twist.  This 'First Anniversary' card has been in Thelma's Scrapbook all these years and was re-discovered TODAY while 'First Born' was looking for photos. 
Happy 68th Heavenly Anniversary Mom and Dad
Your First Born,


  1. Beautiful, Sue. I don't believe in coincidence, so Kismet is a great explanation. How sweet that you are able to continue to celebrate your parents' love, and their love story.

  2. A very beautiful Anniversary tribute to your parents, Sue.
