…my husband married an awesome woman (and a humble one). Hee!
Being it is our wedding anniversary I started a jog down memory lane. A beautiful Saturday in March…okay I spare you and sprint to the finish! I thought about my wedding day. Where I absolutely despise my choice of fashion, colors and décor (in fact, I’ve purposely lost my wedding album so there would be no witness of my horrible fashion sense) I still love the man, the ceremony and the reception.
My nostalgic ‘jog’ to that wonderful dreamy day also revealed something quite alarming and that probably should not be admitted. Since I have already shown security in my self-esteem based on my opening statement I will go ahead and set myself up for ridicule and verbal bashing. My memory jaunt turned to my wedding party you know the one that is always filled with your life-long, best friends. Well let’s start with Sohailah, now I do keep in touch with her albeit via blogging. My friend Mary, we send each other Christmas cards and exchange emails twice a year. Then there is sister in-law, she is married to my brother so we keep in good contact. My best friend and college roommate for 4 years, we haven’t spoken I think since my wedding although I did send her a lovely wedding thank you for what I am sure must have been a vase. As for the other 3 involved, I am having a hard time even recollecting who they were. How horrible is that?
And the guys that stood by Rich on this special day, he has kept in good contact with every single one! Okay wait a minute, I am the social one and he is the introvert. Or perhaps I am the shallow one and he a good friend. Ugh…I will definitely need an extra dessert with dinner tonight!
So much for the beautiful tribute to my husband and our amazing last 13 years, eh? I did journal a prayer this morning along the lines of gratitude for those amazing 13 years. And to continue to become the wife, mother, friend, minister and daughter the Almighty intended me to be so the next 13 years supersede any and all expectation. That shows some growth in the shallow category hey?
Happy Anniversary to my wonderful hubby; love your shallow, humble yet honest wife, Shel!
