My parents celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary yesterday.
It was 58 years ago yesterday, on June 5th 1954, Margaret Mackie and Kenneth Bruce Thompson were married in St. Andrews Presbyterian Church on Main St. in Markham.
I understand it rained that day but that is supposed to be good luck.
Obviously for them, it was.
Growing up our house was just like anyone else’s, full of ups and downs, but some how we got through.
As I look back now a great sense of humour helps, which both my Mom and Dad have.
They both worked, my Dad nights and my Mom days, to give us what they could which was plenty.
Neither finished high school due to family commitments and the war but made sure we had all the opportunity.
As I look at my own life and wonder where the time goes I now know what they were talking about back then.
Time are tough now, jobs are scarce and don’t always pay what they used to.
But all we have to do is look to our parents to know, it’s always been tough.
Happy 58th you love birds. Enjoy the camper!
I’m Scott Thompson.
