I LOVE THIS QUOTE. It speaks volumes that everyone who takes the sacred vow of
marriage should abide by. Simple and true. Love no matter what, never take advantage of that love.
As you saw in my previous blog, the family and I just got back from a beautiful family wedding in Mississippi. There is nothing that turns me into a blubber fest more than a wedding- especially a family member's wedding! I turn into complete mush, tear up, my heart races, because I know what a big deal it is to say those vows and how much it truly means to take on that commitment. So the whole thing makes me emotional- happy emotional, but with tears.
Me and my family all dolled up for the wedding!
I know marrying my husband was definitely the BEST decision I've made in my life. I second guess a lot of things, but never did I second guess this one when he asked me to marry him. And I took that decision to be his wife and take his name very seriously. The preacher at this past wedding said something that completely stuck with me (forgive me if I don't get this quote exact!). He made sure that the couple was agreeing to marry each other for who they were at that moment, and that they should not be marrying each other in order to change one another down the road. For better OR for worse, to the max. I know after 10 years of marriage, that trying to accomplish the "perfect" marriage or mate is exhausting, useless, and unimportant. Nobody is perfect, and perfection is boring and unrealistic. So marrying someone for who they are deep to their core, is the best way to love.
My hubby w our daughter dancing together.
He told me that weddings now take on a new meaning bc he thinks of her walking down the aisle one day and how hard it will be for him. Here goes the blubbering...
All 5 of us cutting a rug with the band, The Atlanta Allstars.
They had my kids (and the adults!) hooked to staying on the dance floor. Major energy!!
I am happily married, through the good times and the bad, and I am so happy that through the ups and downs, I have Scott by my side. My marriage makes me feel beautiful when I feel ugly. No makeup products necessary! Thank goodness for our marriage because my kids wouldn't be here if I didn't marry him- they were a really nice, beautiful, and loving bonus!! And our lives would not be as exciting as they are now!
My 2 out of 3 who make my marriage more beautiful in so many ways.
Even though I think they were going for wacky, not beautiful;-)
What about your marriage makes you feel most beautiful??!
