My parents celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary this weekend. Their main goal was always creating a better life for their children. All of these years later they continue to hold hands, never leave the other’s side, and take care of each other. My brothers, sister, and I learned the true meaning of love, kindness, and hard work from them. They are a true inspiration. #Blessed
