~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Okay so here I am 12 days away from the wedding and I'm getting all wrapped up in these details, trying to finish up everything, and now starting to panic over the weather forecast.
On my way to work, I had my usual million and one things racing in my head about what I have left to do before the big day. My heart started to race, my head started to hurt, my hands started to shake when I just said to myself STOP!
I need to take a second to let the "wedding" go and reflect on what is about to happen. I need to go back 9 months ago to the day he proposed, two and a half years ago when we started dating, eighteen years ago when we first met....
I am about to marry my soulmate, my partner, my best friend, the love of my life. The one who makes me smile when everything else is going wrong. The one who I feel safe in the arms in. The one who will keep me warm at night. The one who loves me despite all of my imperfections.
I am about to embark on a major journey. I am about to make the biggest decision of my life. I am about to become ONE with him.
This matters SO much more than whether I will finish the placecards in time, or whether people are going to show up or not show up on the day of the wedding, or whether all of the flowers will be in place, or whether it will rain or not.
The important thing to remember is that in 12 days I will take the most sacred vows with the person who means the most to me. Vows that I plan to never say to another person ever again. Vows that mean I have to forget all about "me, me, me" and start thinking "we, we, we". That is what matters.
I love Vince and I am excited for our wedding but even moreso, I am excited about making (and keeping) a lifetime of promises to him and becoming his wife.
The End :). Sorry, I just needed to preach to myself for a second.
