Gratitude for My Parents
This is my Birthday Week and my big day is tomorrow. Seven decades. Good Grief! So, I’m in a reflective mode, that’s for sure. Let me introduce -Jim & Bev Wicken – my parents!
- They were deeply in love with each other and very romantic. Both of them enjoyed formal occasions and loved to dress-up. My dad always remembered celebrations and treated my mom to jewellery. They liked to dance in the kitchen. My dad always called my mom “my bride”.
- Because my dad was in the Royal Canadian Airforce we zig-zagged across Canada and lived in British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
- Even though our life-style was unique, my parents balanced all of the constant moving by demonstrating love, respect and joy throughout their entire marriage.
- They were stellar parents! My sister and brother and I are proud that they gave us such a solid foundation.
