Doing the Impossible...

Weddings make me happy, I didn't really realize that until I started my year long Happy Project. I am trying for a year to focus on my happiness, sounds selfish but it's not...it's mindful!

The part of the wedding I enjoy most is hearing the couple recite their vows because while they do I remember mine...

I, Ronda, take you Robert, to be my husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.

At the time, I thought, geez  "piece of cake,"... "wedding cake" to be exact. But, I was wrong, it is the hardest job you will ever take on, (the army is wrong) it's not just my marriage, it's marriage...it's not easy. But, it's not meant to be easy. It's the ultimate challenge and to struggle in your marriage is to grow in faith, to grow in knowledge and to grow in love.

I have not been a perfect wife nor has my husband been a perfect husband but we have grown in love and I honestly didn't realize I could love him more than when I took my vows for the first time!

I love weddings, I love watching a couple, in front of their family and friends promise to do the "impossible" while other "old" couples hold hands and silently agree to continue doing the "impossible."

It was a beautiful wedding!

It is always wonderful to revisit those vows, isn't it? Now, if more folks would just take them seriously.

Weddings are reminders of the promises made.

Sounds like you are enjoying happy!

Ronda, I just loved this post-because it is such a great reminder to me that maybe it IS hard work, a lot of the time, but so worth it. Not that i am married, you know, but living with someone is also hard work, and worth it.

Also, I love the fact that you pointed out that you are being MINDFUL, not selfish-because that is the truth.

Mostly, I just love hearing from you.

I've been married for 29 years and the weddings then were not the weddings you see today. I love the freedom that young women and men have to create their ceremony. I recently went to a wedding and the recession song was "Lucky" by Jason Mraz. Very fun, joyful and full of love.

I agree...This couple's recessional song was a contemporary version of We Adore Thee...beautiful!

Well said, Ronda. Marriage is a tough one!
