What is a golden anniversary?
It's 50 years of love and cherish, sickness and health, richer or poorer...as well as "hotter and colder" "Sweeter and sour" and "Mr. Puntual and Mrs. Always running late."
Fifty years. Think about it.
In turn hath ripen'd something of our happiness.
And for some people, it's half a century of popsicle toes in a queen-size bed, taking turns sitting up with a sick child, walking the dog --- even in the rain, and foregoing that magical dream vacation to save for someone's college opportunity instead. Great time to remember this with a custom Snow Globe.
In fifty years time, you watch a person's face take on the cares and creases and laugh lines of experience. The wrinkles represent the thoughtfulness of a lifetime. You see a lap grow wider to hold grandchildren, and hands grow tender with age. In fifty years time, you remember the days of bright joy, and learn to share the memories of the silly arguments half-forgotten.
The best is yet to be.
The last of life, for which the first is made.
We've been fortunate at Snow Globe Central, to make a special snow globe, now and then, to celebrate some lucky couple's journey to the Fifty Year Mark: the golden anniversary. As one grandchild told us when ordering this, "A golden Snow Globe is the perfect way to remember my grandma and pop-pop's special day, because they LOVE shaking things up, and now they can do it as often as they wish."
Happy 50th anniversary, grandma and pop-pop. May you hold hands and smile at each other for many, many more years to come with more Snow Globes if you please.
