This is a poem which was part of my speech at our son’s and new daughter-in-law’s wedding. It reminds me so much of our life together. I wanted to share it with you, my love forever and ever!

A Beautiful Life Together

Let love be your shelter.

The world is noisy and confusing at times,

So make a home that is a haven,

A peaceful place where you can listen to your hearts

And savor the comfortable closeness you share.

No matter how busy your days may be,

Make time for yourselves.

Hold hands. Unwnd. Surprise each other.

Find little chances everyday to show

you are grateful to be partners,

to be friends, to be lovers … to be married.

Life is not perfect.

You will make mistakes,

But each time you meet life’s challenges together, you will grow wiser, stronger, and surer of your love.

Cherish your yesterdays.

They are irreplaceable souvenirs of your journey through life.

Make memories that will bring smiles and sighs

Whenever you look back.

Look back often!

Look forward, too.

Dream together. Plan together. Make promises to keep.

Believe in your tomorrows,

Because tomorrows are what forever is made of.

To make love last, put each other first.

This is the way to make a beautiful life together.
