Today, my crazy, lovely family is gathering to celebrate. My grandparents have been married for 60 years.

We'll all be aware that time like this is precious. We'll all be aware that my grandpa may not see another anniversary. But we won't dwell on it, or worry about it. Not today. Today is all about honoring two people who've loved each other fiercely through six children and a world that has changed around them in immeasurable, irreversible ways. But they have made the "we" in their world a constant. And it will remain that way for them, and for me, long after they're gone.

And I'm thankful. And let's be honest, pretty freakin' impressed.
