Many of you are still asking from time to time how my mother is. She is still recovering slowly but is making good progress with her rehabilitation. My dad remains a steady and strong companion and is never leaving her side. 

 

Last year 2012, we celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary here in Minneapolis however earlier this year, I thought it was the last. But with God’s grace, it wasn’t. I am not ashamed to admit that my faith was shaken but it was through my father’s actions and deeds (he’s a man of few words) that I realized that it won’t be and that there’s Miracle to life.

 

My sister Jot wrote this about my parents —

“True love means staying with the person you love no matter how difficult life gets, no boundaries, not one week, not one month, not ever… That’s why I admire the great love of my mom and dad. Watching them taking care of each other in their own ways made me realize what true love bounded by God means. Things may not be as perfect as it used to be, with mom still lying helpless on her bed and dad catching sickness sometimes, but everyday, everynight, every minute they never fail to be by each others’ side. Helping one another get by each difficult moment. Giving words of encouragement to one another that no matter how tiring and hard and painful things may be, they will always be there to support each other, to love one another.”

 

Today, they are celebrating their 41st of strong togetherness and my wish for them is to touch lives of more couples (not just mine or ours) and be a beaming example of what true love really means.

 

Mommy and Daddy — you are my inspiration and my guide. Thank you so much for being wonderful parents to us but more importantly, the best husband and wife to each other.

 

We love you so much and see you again soon this December.

 

With So Much love,

Joyce
