I thought this was an especially beautiful love story.
Not the kind that stops with ‘happily ever after,’ but the kind that keeps changing & transforming after the wedding day.
“Let’s tell them about the vast middle part of love, too, this part right now, the part that doesn’t show up in movies and love songs, the part where my hips have widened and your hair is greying, and some of our dreams are languishing at the same time that others are coming true. About how we’ve become better acquainted and more appreciative of the fruit of faithfulness and gentleness as the years go by.
“We’re still choosing each other, over and over and over again, this is what we want, this is what I want, this is what we want, you are who I want, still, then, always.”
Some of the most powerful words we can ever think, whisper or say out loud. I choose you. For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.
