On Saturday, May 12, my step-son, Todd was married to Sam. I know all brides are beautiful, but Sam had to be the most beautiful bride I've ever seen. She truly glowed. There was no 'look how beautiful I am' going on, she was just her sweet adorable self.
I worried during the ceremony that Sam or Todd would pass out from nerves, but they held it together. Then they each read their vows, that they wrote. Todd opened everyone's hearts with his raw honesty proclaiming how Sam's love made him whole. I doubt there was a dry eye in the place. Then Sam opened those hearts even further with her promises of love to Todd. I really can't remember hearing more beautiful sentiments being said to one another.
I couldn't help but think after I listened to their words that, as a writer, as long as one speaks from the heart, it can only touch one's heart.
Congratulations to Todd and Sam - may you touch one another's heart for the rest of your lives.
