Sometimes it’s hard to stay optimistic about love.
Especially when half of marriages end in divorce and every couple you know are at each other’s throats.
So it’s nice to see that there still is a few exemplary examples of love still out there.
Photographer Amber Robinson took to Instagram to show appreciation of her parents as they celebrated 47th wedding anniversary.
What made the story even more touching is the fact that her parents survived cancer twice.
She accompanied the photos with a beautiful caption: ‘I never dreamed of my wedding… only dreamed of a beautiful marriage.’
‘In this wonderful creative industry that I worked in, I focus so much on providing couple hours with a day of beautiful photography.’
‘To be honest, rarely do I stop to think about the day, weeks, months or years that follow a wedding day.’
“So today I share with you what those years after can look like when true love exists.’
‘These are my parents: married for 47 years, they have triumphed over cancer…twice.’
‘They have raised two successful daughters.’
‘They have been poor together and rich together. They have fed, sheltered, and advised countless lost souls.’
‘They love with out expectation and give freely, whatever it is they have to offer. I am SO proud to call them Mom and Dad.’
‘They are the epitome of where I strive to be in my own marriage and a constant reminder that a wedding is only a day, but a marriage is forever.’
‘If you are one of the millions in love, or maybe one of the millions of broken-hearted that need a visual reminder that love always endures.’
‘I would love for you to share this as a way of letting my mom and dad know, they are an inspiration to anyone who wants, believes, or is in love.’
