Hello to All -
Well 6 years ago today I married my prince, literally if you asked my Grandma. She figured I was destined when I told her I was living on Princeton Ave. She was always a wise woman. Well no snow today, but tornadoes are heading our way. Mind you I live in NC now, not Kansas. My how things have changed...A lot of people put the incredible expectation on their wedding day. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing more important than standing before God and promising to love someone forever, no matter what come your way. I am truly blessed to have been loved and to love someone up until then. So many people are not as lucky. I have also come to realize that like the movies (Ghost) for example Patrick Swazey says you get to take your love with you, well I don't know about that part, but here on earth you get to keep loving and I believe you are forever loved.
Back to the wedding day thing, for Bo and I, well, other than the "Standing before God"part it really was a formality. Bo knew before I did, God help me he was so impulsive, but it worked for him. He knew for early on we would be together forever. He was my decisiveness, I was his flexibility. He was my voice, I was he sounding board. He was my "spoil me rotten", I was our "we need to save a little more". He was simply, "My Great Love." He was so crazy, we met in late October and by Thanksgiving he was telling me we were getting married. If anyone knows me, knows I didn't even call my boyfriend for 2 years, he was forever the "Interviewer". How lucky were we....the best part, Addi.
I explained to her this morning why Mommy was a little sad and she quickly told me she had a present for me. She went to the alarm clock/CD player and played "Our Song" "Someone Like You", by Van Morrison. In 9 years that CD has sat in there and woke us up, I figure why change it. We danced to it at our wedding. After playing it, she looked at me with big eyes and asked, "Did that make you feel better," Of course it did. Loving her, Loving him and remember who loves us, helps us everyday.
I hope everyone gets to experience eternal love. Addi and I hope to love again, but we know already no one can love as much as Bo did. Thanks for always being my sounding/reading board.
All our love,
Christi and Addi
PS - A little shout out to ET for enduring a black eye from Bo the night before our wedding. Needless to say, things got a little out of hand after the rehearsal dinner!
