We attended my husband's cousins wedding over the weekend. I love attending weddings-- it's an occasion just so full of emotions. While sitting in the church waiting for the bride to finally walk down the aisle, I couldn't help but remember my wedding day.
The Prayer was sang as the beautiful bride slowly walked down the aisle with her father. A huge knot began to form in my throat. As her father gave her away, people started to wipe away their tears. The ceremony was solemn but brief. I was thankful for the message of the priest because it reminded me again of the importance of marriage. The hustle and bustle of everyday life often distracts me from certain things I should focus on. My priorities get jumbled a lot of times and I often end up neglecting people and things who deserve my love and attention. I allow petty things to destroy the day without realizing how much is being compromised because of my own selfishness.
I closed my eyes and said a prayer.
The reception that followed of course was for everyone to enjoy. I am thankful for my husband. I am thankful for my children.
