Traditional Wedding Vows Example: 1 “I, (Name), take you (Bride/Groom), to be my (Husband/ Wife), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.”
Well, my husband and I have certainly visited all of those circumstances over the past three decades. We have held ourselves to our vows even, or especially, when times are hard. We’re exercising our vow muscles now as we navigate my chronic fibromyalgia and depression with the addition of a spiral break of the fibula, requiring surgery to put it back together.
I can’t even type the whirlwind of changing circumstances currently coming our way, from death of her husband and upcoming relocation of my mother-in-law to our home, my disability, etc. Overwhelmed, more tired than I can remember feelng ever, incredibly sore muscles and joints thanks to fibro, spout for tears on the ready, fuzzy mind, no ocean visit,
We’d planned for my husband to pickup food from a really nice restaurant for Sunday evening to celebrate our Leap Day anniversary, but I was too tired to eat. We cooked up a frozen pizza, which I’ve determined that I can no longer eat. Pepperoni is no friend of my acid reflux. Not that it will be terribly missed.
No trip, no fancy meal, no expensive gifts. The most important aspect of an anniversary, that we’re celebrating so many years together and honoring our vows, these things make our 30 year anniversary precious.
Hey, it’s another ‘no proof reading’ post.
