I loved seeing them both so happy. Weddings are filled with hope for the future; the beginning of a new life.
During the service, the minister asked those of us who were married to reflect on our vows as we witnessed them make theirs. No matter whose wedding I am at, I always remember my own wedding.
When we got married, we didn’t know what the future held (and we still don’t), but we made the commitment to face it together no matter what. I believe that love is a choice and an action, and that I have to choose to love Country Boy. I have to act in a way that is loving, even when I don’t necessarily feel like it.

Watching them commit themselves to each other, made me glad that I married Country Boy. The newly wed gloss has well and truly worn off (3 kids take care of that), but I love him more than ever. Although we are past the newly wed phase, our lives are still filled with joy. True, it is sometimes hard to find it in amongst the day to day busyness of family life, but it is there.
And I love that weddings remind me of it.
