In a culture where “traditional” is the minority and divorce is the method in which most marriages end, I am so PROUD of my grandparents for reaching this milestone. 60 years ago today, my grandparents tied the knot.
The traditional gift for the 60th anniversary is the diamond. Diamonds are beautiful and expensive. They are also, however, common. No, diamonds don’t do justice to 60 years of love and devotion.
They raised three children who went on to have families of their own. Now, 41 people in this world can say they are children to Nils and Laura! All of whom live upstanding lives and love God as much as Nils and Laura do!
I’m sure their marriage wasn’t easy, but how beautiful are the results?
