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!
