Tomorrow, my parents are celebrating their 33rd wedding anniversary. I can barely do something for 33 minutes, let alone 33 years.
By most conventional standards, my dad doesn’t seem to be the most romantic person. He doesn’t plan extravagant trips or buy crazy jewelry for my mom. But he gets her, you know? Like he really really understands who she is, and not only that, but he accepts and appreciates who she is. They don’t try and change each other, they don’t try and mold each other into the person they want the other to be. They don’t pressure each other, they don’t judge each other. They are simply there for each other, no matter what happens. And to me, that’s all you can ask from anyone you care about.
So thank you mom and dad, for teaching me to be unconditional in every aspect that matters.
