For the first time, I’m participating in 5 Minute Friday, a blog carnival of sorts where I write for 5 minutes straight with no editing, revising or even really thinking about what I’m going to say. It’s kinda like going on television without your makeup on, or worse case scenario, showing up on the first day of 7th grade with your zipper down.
So, this is me, raw and fresh faced writing from the cue
If I could, I would
If I could talk to Will and Kate, I would tell them that the wedding has absolutely nothing to do with the marriage.
This is the day you’ve made the decision of whom you’ll spend the rest of your life with.
But, it doesn’t determine HOW you’ll spend the rest of your life.
Remember that you’ve chosen this person to be your partner, your confidant, your rock in the storms.
But, no one is perfect.
There will come a time when one of you will fart in public, much to the horror of the other.
There will come a time when you will wonder if you’ve really made the right choice.
There will come a time when you realize that your child is exactly like your spouse and you’re not sure if you can live with 2 people that are polar opposites of you in every way.
To ensure happiness, think always of the other person first.
It’s not to say that your needs don’t matter, but to say that your needs aren’t what matter most.
Surround yourself with people who love you both for who you are and what you have yet to become-people who can see the good in both of you, people who see the good in you as a couple, and not only as individuals.
And, Will, Kate will need her bff, because you’re not a girl and you’ll never understand the inner workings of the mind of a girl.
And, Kate, he’ll need some guy time, too-but this has nothing to do with you or your lack of anything.
Most of all, put God in the center and things will always turn out somehow.
