I’d like to dedicate this blog post to my very special friend Christina.
Christina is the type of friend that had I not known her I am one hundred percent certain I would not be the person I am today.
How many of us are so lucky?
Christina is marrying the one. I am thrilled for them both as these days it is not as common to witness a couple getting married for simply the following reason:
So with this awesomeness are some wishes that have been sitting with me,
that I would like to share with you.
I wish you both the kind of marriage that continues to refresh itself as you continue to work on it.
I hope that when you feel like “I love you” you always say it.
When you feel like “I need you” you always ask.
And when you feel like “I appreciate you” you show it.
I hope that you both continue to have separate Facebook accounts and never mesh one together. Please don’t be about that life.
I wish for you to have fat healthy babies. Or baby. Your choice!
I hope you don’t start always referring to each other as “my husband” and “my wife.” We know who you are and will still manage to remember you’re married even if you refer to each other with your birth-given names.
I sincerely wish for you to become that super old couple everyone admires and younger people ask “How do you sustain a happy healthy marriage?”
As I think about all the things I want to wish for your union it dawns on me.
The same wishes I have for you, I have for me. Even the silly ones.
And as I send much love with all these wishes to you I know in my heart if I stay true to my own self as you both have,
the day will come you will be wishing me the same.
I’m dead serious about the Facebook one. Please. I beg of you.
“I saw your eyes
And you touched my mind
Though it took a while
I was falling in love…“
