Two years ago I married a man that makes life that much sweeter. I've never really believed in soul mates, but if I did, then I've found mine. I know I might sound a bit cynical and just plain annoying, but marrying my love is hands down one of the best decisions I've ever made.
When planning our wedding I knew I wasted a wedding that people would never forget. I didn't want fire throwing monkeys, but I did want to stay away for the traditional aspects of most weddings. I found the poem "The Key To Love" and immediately fell in love with it. So after we walked down the aisle we had different friends and family stand up one at a time and recite stanzas of the poem. Aside from "sealing the deal with my love", this was my favorite part of the ceremony.
The Key To Love...
The key to love is understanding...the ability to comprehend not only the spoken word, but those unspoken gestures, the little things that say so much by themselves.
The key to love is forgiveness. ...to accept each others faults and pardon mistakes, without forgetting, but with remembering what you learn from them.
The key to love is sharing...facing your good fortunes as well as the bad together; both with the hope of just a simple smile, and by giving in but never giving up.
The key to love is respect...realizing that you are two separate people, with different ideas; that you don't belong to each other, that you belong with each other, and share a mutual bond.
The key to love is inside us all...it takes time and patience to unlock all the ingredients that will take you to its threshold; it is the continual learning process that demands a lot of work. But the rewards are more than worth the effort, and that is the key to love.
