2 years ago, on a beautiful November day, my beloved and I stood before our communities of family, friends and faith and told them and God that we wanted to spend all of the rest of our days loving one another.
OK – what we really said was:
my beloved, my partner, my own; to honor and cherish you; to share with
you in life’s joys and triumphs, and to stand with you in times of
grief and misfortune. I will be truthful in all things and strive with you to create a home filled with reverence and hospitality. I will love you all the days of my life. This is my solemn vow.
Two years later, feels like two days. There is not a day that goes by that I do not thank my God for this love that we share. I am blessed beyond my wildest understanding, I love her more than I can put words to. She is my best friend, my partner, my beloved, my anam cara. Together, love.
