Happy Anniversary Mama i Tata

April 16, 2008

Kochana Mama i Tata,

Ya tak bardzo kochama vas and I am sorry that your investment in my Polish schooling did not appreciate in value. At least, I made life long friends in Polish school.

But enough about me. Today is your 32nd wedding anniversary. I want to thank you for taking that giant leap of faith and moving to America with us. Through all the hardships we have faced throughout the years, your marriage has stayed strong. Your marriage has been a foundation for us all and an example of what to follow for the future.

Happy Anniversary Mama and Tata.

Who would have thought that 32 years later you would have three incredibly gifted children and three incredibly delicious grandchildren all hopelessly devoted to you? We love you more than words can say.

Today, on your 32nd anniversary, a new American Greetings card made is debut at Walmarts across the world. Appropriately so it is an anniversary card which reads...

"The only thing better than loving you is knowing that you love me, too."

Furthermore, and even more appropriately so, the outside of the card is a picture of two very delicious children holding hands. Your grandchildren.

Your leap of faith and investment in us, in our future, has paid off. We lead by your example and are thankful. Kochama vas forever and ever.

Love,
OHmommyski

Anyone who can manage to last even 10 years is doing good in my book but 32 years is really super! Hope they had a great anniversary and it's more than evident what a wonderful job they did as parents, as role models.
May they have many more years together too!!!

Love the card with your kids on it. I have to ask, do you work for or freelance for American Greetings? I worked in their IT department in Osceola, AR for 10 years.

Small world.

PRECIOUS! That card is PRECIOUS. Am racking my brain trying to think of whose anniversary is coming up so that I can send them that card. Is there a link where I can purchase them in BULK??? if not, i guess i will have to demoralize and step into my own personal hell, otherwise known as Walmart.
