My pastor wanted me to write a letter to read during the ceremonyabout our relationship, sort of a letter to eachother, but nothing towards him exactly. Here is a sample that he sent me:
A friend once told me her husband is her best friend and she always wants him to be part of her experiences and memories. At the time I didn’t agree or understand, I mean really, someone to be with you ALL the time? But then the Union St Fair in SF happened a few years ago. Heidi and I were preparing for a day of entertaining and spending a fun afternoon with friends. Sadly you couldn’t make it. As the day began I felt really sad; something was missing, something didn’t feel right. I was having a hard time even faking having fun. And I didn’t realize what those feelings meant or where they came from til you surprised me later that day by showing up! I clearly remember the moment you called my cell to say you were on Union St at the fair. We were both walking in a sea of people, on our phones, searching for the other, trying to describe where exactly we were. Then I saw you, waving at me down the street. Instantly I ran–in my heeled sandals skirt and all–jumped up on you and squealed with happiness. I was so happy you were there by my side again. The day could now continue with my best friend to share in it. It’s really an amazing feeling that literally snuck up on me. It’s always more fun with you there. You make me laugh at silly things. You make me feel comfortable and calm when our lives get hectic. You calm me when I cry and most of all you make me coffee and give me kisses every morning to start my day. I would have never guessed that a co-worker who at one time would swing by my office casually to say “hi, how was your weekend?” would be my friend for life and become my husband today. It’s you who I want to tell share in my experiences and be by my side “all the time”.
