Together for 67 Years!

Today is my mom and pop’s wedding anniversary. They are 87 years old. They were married in Tehran, Iran in 1943. Back then they called it Persia. They immigrated to the U.S.A. in 1947. They had 9 children but lost their first daughter to an illness when she was just two. She is buried in Iran.

We count ourselves blessed by God to have parents who are faithful to each other and to their children and friends. They love each other dearly and do everything together. Thank you to my mom and pop for being such a wonderful example to us!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS, Mom & Pop! 67 years… that is an amazing milestone, and a great inspiration to us all! Love the photos, Ellen… especially that top one–they look SOOOO HAPPY! :o) ((HUGS))

  2. Precious. So fun to see their wedding picture. I always love seeing pictures of your parents…they are so cute together..like their love is so fresh.

  3. What a sweet sweet post. Happy anniversary to your parents! Are you going to go to CA to celebrate with them? What an example of devotion and love they are to us “young” folks. 🙂 How and where did they meet in Russia?

    I have got to run to tend to Baby. Will be back to catch up on your blog later.

    Have a blessed morning.

  4. A beautiful couple then and now. Do you remember growing up that someone celebrating at 50th anniversary was really something? Now more and more 65th…70th and more anniversaries are happening. I say may that trend continue!

    I might have missed something though: I thought you were Russian descent. How did your folks wind up getting married in Persia?

    (And I do apologize for my cat’s distrust of Persian cats…he is convinced they are Iraqi or Irani terrorists out to do evil to regular faced short haired type cats.)

    • Jill, both my parents were born in Russia. Their families separately escaped out of Russia in the early 30’s and settled in villages close to Tehran. My parents met in Iran…

  5. You look so much like your mom in their wedding picture. Contratulations to your parents – they look so happy together and may God grant them good health in the coming year.

  6. Ellen, pass my congratulations on to your parents… I can actually HEAR their voices through you… smile… They are indeed a wonderful example to the kind of marriage that lasts ! What an interesting life they have had — I would love to read their story !
