“Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.” – Dr. Stephen Covey
Mamaw and Papaw will be married 60 years this month. We gathered at a local airport to celebrate with friends from their Sunday School class. This location was chosen because they met and worked together at a small county airport back in the 1950’s. Papaw offered airplane rides for folks, while Mamaw collected the money in a shoe box.
I think my mom and dad are as different as night and day, and maybe that’s what makes things work. When choosing a copilot, I believe I’d want to have someone on board that has all the strengths that I lack. It’s even more important when you’re carrying precious cargo.
Dad and our precious cargo
I’m glad I’ve learned a little something from watching my parents marriage, and landed a pretty great copilot myself. 😉 Rudy and I are definitely as different as night and day. I’ve often said “I’m the gas pedal and he’s the brakes”. We’ve piloted through a few storms over the years, and we’ve been blessed to enjoy some beautiful horizons. I can’t imagine navigating this life without him.
Love and congratulations to Mamaw and Papaw on their 60th! As we continue to chart our course, we’re thankful for their example.
