- Wedding: September 2010
Last week, I had an idea of writing a little something about my fiance and me, printing it out, and leaving copies of the letter for people to grab when leaving the bridal shower. I just wrote it today, but I’d love to know what you all think!
So…The rough draft:
“Matthew and I began to get to know each other in November of 2006- I like to tell people that my entire life happened within the last 4 years.
We first saw each other at karate, a friendship was encouraged whenever he would pick me up for church, and when his mom started to home school me…well, we were seeing each other everyday.
He was only guy that held the kind of trust that I had in him; he would pick me up, spin me around, and throw me in the air as if I weighed nothing; he only made me hit my head once.
We would stay up entirely too late as I would tell him stories of my life; he only fell asleep during my autobiography once.
Matthew’s shirt has been a tissue for me while I have fallen apart through tears; that has happened far more than once.
The past few years of my life have been the hardest yet, and through it all Matthew has been my best friend, counselor, boyfriend, supporter, and now my soon-to-be husband. And through these year, he has only left me once, but it was because I pushed him out.
Then one day, after we had been mad at each other for months, he calls me, “Would you like to go get some Chinese food and go to the movies to see ‘Bolt’?” My response? “Yea!”
And suddenly we weren’t angry anymore.
Two months later: we had our first date. Seven months later: he bought me a ring. Thirteen months later: we will be saying “I do”.
Matthew has been my hero. He rescued me from a couple of things, but most importantly he saved me from myself; I was forgetting my God because of events that had occurred in my life and Matthew showed me that abandoning my Savior wasn’t the answer. Though I still have my struggles, I can honestly say that I am a better person than I was because Matthew let God work through him to do just that.
And hopefully someday soon, I can say that I know I have done the same thing for him.
Is it something for a bridal shower?
