On MarriageLove one another, but make not a bond of love;Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.Give one another your bread but eat not from the same loaf.Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone.Even as the strings of a flute are alone though they quiver with the same music.Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.For only the hand of life can contain your hearts.And stand together yet not too near together.For the pillars of the temple stand apart.And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.-Kahlil Gibran
We’re far from who we were when we first met and started dating. We’ve grown into our own person and striving to be who we want to be in life – no excuses – holding each other accountable (most days. ha!). Even though we’re different people from who we once were – we’re still here cheering each other on – wanting to see each other succeed. Constantly developing a life for us and our family. We’re here. We’re now. We’re living our dream – or at least planning it and moving towards it. We’re not perfect but perfection isn’t us. Here’s to us!
