My husband was watching the Perkin’s Family highlight video with me right before they came over for their gallery reveal and he said, “wow, you really got them laughing!”
“Oh, no!” I said. “That was all them!”
On their questionnaire, the Perkins family said they love to laugh together. I thought, oh that’s so sweet! Oh, little did I know…the laughter, the joking, the smiles did not stop the entire time. This is a family who genuinely loves being together.
I think it was the other way around, they actually got me laughing and it was so good for my soul!
Felicia’s parents, BJ and Oscar, are retired missionaries and are celebrating their sixty-fifth wedding anniversary this year. I am so amazed when I hear about people being married that long…and to think that Ryan and I have fifty-nine more years before we get to that point. Fifty-nine years of ups, downs, victories and defeats, sickness and health. Thinking that far into the future makes me slow down and appreciate what we have today, which is not easy for me to do. I find it easier to think two steps ahead than about the hear and now. But the thought of being married for sixty-five years and all the life that could happen between now and then causes me to focus on today. And you know what? I’m okay with that!
Congratulations BJ & Oscar!
