While I am not Christian, this was read at my wedding 37 years ago.................and we are still married.
I'm not the easiest woman to get a long with. He is my better half, quiet, gentle, very intellegent, a real man among men.
I pray I go before him because I don't want to live without him. He is my rock, my lover, my best friend.
We have been through more together (three sons 1 ADHD and two autistic) than most people could ever imagine or go through.
He has always stood by me.
I was orphaned at 9 and from 9 to 20 went through sort of like a Oliver Twist type life. A survivor of sexual, physical and mental abuse until I met
my soul mate 38 years ago.
He is nine years older than me, I only wish I could give him 9-10 of my years to ensure I never have to spend a day on this cold, hard, cruel rock
without him by my side.
Love is loving someone else more than yourself.
We didn't have a fancy wedding, we were married in a one bedroom apartment (it rained the day we were to be married in a park).
We had a sheet cake from Jewel's
His family came and left all within our ten minute ceremony.
I always dreamed of a wedding like Princess Diana, her dress was the kind I would have picked out. But if I had to trade her life for mine, all the
riches, the beautiful jewelry, the clothes (and to my mind this lady had real classy taste) I wouldn't.
I'm a romantic at heart and my favorite movie on love is "Happily Ever After" with Drew Barrymore.
As hard of a life as I have had and I am nearing 60, I wouldn't trade a single day with any of the rest of you, Princesses included.
I married my Prince Charming...................there is such a thing as true, everlasting love.
The first night we met, after he walked me back to my apartment I vowed I would do anything to be with him.........I knew we had been together before
My grand daughter asked me "Why did you marry Grandpa?" and I said, "Because he was kind, very intellegent, honest and a good man."
She than said, "What about his blue eyes Grammie?" and I said laughing, "Yes sweetie, I also love his blue eyes."
