Two of my best friends were getting married this month. Not to each other, mind you, but to their respective partners. And I couldn’t be happier this moment thinking about both couples and how they proved that fairy tales still happened.
This person, with the photo up there, was the first.
Marrying his high school sweetheart after more than 10 years of relationship, this guy that I already considered as a brother finally earned his lifelong happiness. It wasn’t easy. Believe me, I knew. But not only he survived, he thrived. This lover boy held 120 or more monthly celebration of the date they got together, spent thousands of hours (literally) on the back of his motorcycle making sure his girl arrived home safely (mostly around midnight), worked hard every day of the week to provide everything the bride requested for the wedding, and God knew what else he did in the name of love.
So yeah, he earned this happiness. He DESERVED this. And may God grant him more in days to come.
Once again, congratulations Gerry and Janice. May each day find your hearts a little closer, your lives a little fuller, and your love a little deeper.
