The Power of We: A Reflection on the Celebration of 60 Years of Marriage

I am proud to be writing this blog as part of Slice of Life Tuesday over at Two Writing Teachers.  Check it out! 

The Power of We: 
A Reflection on the Celebration of 60 Years of Marriage

We traveled from near and far to the scenic and historic resort, The Mount Washington Hotel, for a long Labor Day weekend. 

We gathered 3 great grandchildren, 8 grandchildren and their spouses, 3 sons and their wives, and of course the guests of honor and the hosts for the weekend, the parents.

We hiked, biked, walked, laughed, cried and laughed some more.

We toasted to many years of happiness and to the upcoming additions to our families (2 more great grandchildren – Yeah!).

We rose early to board the Cog Railway to ride to the top of Mount Washington, the “home of the world’s worst weather” only to experience the world’s worst weather – zero visibility, rain and 66 mph wind gusts!

It was beautiful at the base!
We had to quickly take this picture for fear of our camera blowing away

We ate and ate and ate some more – and then we played some great games, including the The Newlywed and Not-So-Newlywed Game and Cards for Humanity.

We marveled at the beauty and grandeur of the White Mountains and the wildlife it sustains, especially the bear that poked around while we had our family portraits.

All of this because two people fell in love and fostered this family focused on we. They have celebrated love and life, overcome great loss, and walked gracefully through the years, all 60 of them!  What a celebration and a testament to what true love is all about!  

We thank you for all of this and We love you Lois and Bob!

  1. So lovely… my husband's 99 year old grandmother passed away last week. She too added so much to all of our lives — it was always We. So much wisdom in how she lived her life –sounds like you celebrated that wisdom this weekend as well. Thank you for sharing.
