Wedding…the word itself sounds beautiful! Start adding flowers, dress apparel and music and it’s nearly impossible to put into words. I have dreamed of having a wedding since I was a very young girl. I’ll admit over the years it has taken on different styles and decorations in my mind and each of them still float around in my thoughts. I would guess many little girls dream of weddings. My life has taken me down many different paths, I have no regrets though I could have made better decisions. My past is what has molded me into the person I am today, and I have chosen to learn and grow from my past. If I were to discount or discard my past, it would eliminate the lessons I’ve learned.
Just the other day I spent some time thinking about some of the individuals I’ve dated and entered into a relationship with over the period of my adult life. I’m sure there’s a statistic somewhere about how many relationship a person might have in a lifetime, I’m not going to look because it’s irrelevant to me. For a longtime I tried living my life based upon what I admired and seen in others. It can be a roadmap for disaster, if you are not careful. We can appreciate what others do but we must find our own way in the world. I love my parents and the example they set before me, next month would have been their 57th wedding anniversary. My mom passed away just shy of their 49th anniversary. I had planned a special trip just for her and my dad as a surprise, sort of a prelude to their 50th, unfortunately they never had the opportunity to go. Longevity is a wonderful thing, it’s beautiful to see love grow and change through the years. I’ve learned it’s not the years but the moments when it comes to love. I’ve also learned that love is not the same from person to person, and that’s ok as well as being beautifully different. You know, it’s true what they say, “Beauty (love) is in the eye of the beholder.”
I may not be a little girl with dreams of a wedding but I am most definitely a woman who is still dreaming of a wedding, being a bride with a bouquet of flowers and holding the hand of my beloved. Someday, maybe…
