The prompt on the most recent Weekend Wordsmith is "Love."

The following snippet is from the celebration of our wedding in 2004:

Performing the rite of marriage does nothing to create love. The words in the ceremony only create a wedding when two people in love give them meaning over time, maintaining their commitment to each other through all the hardship and heartache unimagined when first falling in love.

How very true.

Thanks, Shephard.

I adored the part where you've mentioned "unimagined." It's the 'realness' of it all kicking in in high gear.

Happy three years. ^_^

Lovely words. Having just celebrated our first year, I relate to everything--particularly the unimagined.

sister AE said...

Thanks, Soulless. We had been together 21 years before we were able to get married, so a wedding for us was an exciting legal formality, but not a new step in our relationship. We'll be celebrating 25 years in a few months.

Hello, Sophie. Congrats again on the one year. Thanks.
