My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary this year and my gift to them was a celebratory dinner for eight guests. Last night they took me up on my offer and I prepared a dinner that honored them and their commitment to each other.  What a joy to be around such lovely people and celebrate a momentous milestone in my parents' lives.
