So much to celebrate. I have always associated weddings with tight shoes, this comes from childhood, not quite sure why, but I do, for some odd reason.
I had the flu, you proposed, I said “yes.” I wasn’t going to allow a little flu to stop me from marrying YOU. We were in Tahoe. No plans, too sick, I was in bed when I agreed to meet at a specific location in a few hours. After our mile hike to our wedding spot, I thought, heck I should have worn hiking or combat boots. Since my sling shoes had pebbles and sand inside of them, but, I must say, once I took the pebbles and sand out, we were good to go. And, my shoes were very comfortable. No tight shoes! Just carried on.
I wore a simple black dress with a brown cashmere wrap (we had not planned to get married) and a small red rose bouquet. You looked so handsome. The where, when, how, clothes, cake, music did not matter to either of us.
You may wonder why the rush after 20 years of living together. We wanted to marry, we just kept putting it off for different “excuses.” We had started going to church and Our Lord was talking to both of us, that we needed to get married. The Bible is clear: living together before marriage is sexual immorality.
We ran around trying to find a place open to buy our rings. Since it was Martin Luther King Day.
We stood alone in front of Minister, Ann, a girl strummed her guitar serenading us on the pier (this was very serendipity) overlooking Lake Tahoe.
We married quietly, I cried softly with joy. Ann provided one hour of photos on CD. popped her car trunk open and asked, “chocolate or vanilla?” I was stumped, chocolate or vanilla what? She gifted us a little wedding cake (she explained she keeps a few frozen) sparkling wine and glass flutes. Licenses issued on site.
Mi Corazon you are the best thing that could have ever happened to me, second to My Lord. What I appreciate most is your caring heart. Just thinking about you brings joy in my heart. You embody all of the virtues I could have ever dreamed of in a man, had I invented you myself; you are kind, patient, supportive, hard-working, our beliefs and values are one and I love your passion for Our Lord. People always talk about the secret to a good marriage is communication! Well, I have always sensed and believed we truly enjoy each other’s company. I just love hanging out with you and suspect you like hanging out with me. We don’t have to say a word! Just be……….Thank you for Loving me, Mi Corazon and Happy Anniversary, may the Lord Bless us with many more. Our journey has mainly been wild, invigorating, quiet, contemplative, exciting, reflective, learning, dusted with a little pain, I could go on and on, and look forward to what Our Lord has in store for us.
And Happy Birthday tomorrow Mi Corazon Te Amo.
Thank you, Father
