I was lucky enough to attend a dear friend’s wedding in Chapel Hill. The ceremony and reception did not disappoint. Family members and friends came together and socialized. I eavesdropped on private conversations between partners who thought no one was listening. And I watched people dance on the dance floor.
The best thing about weddings? Well, I think it’s the opportunity to reminisce about love, life and choices. The bride’s father offered a toast and asked us to think about the ten happiest moments of our lives.
I couldn’t name ten. Can you?!
I do remember when I realized that I would spend the rest of my life with my husband. That was a happy moment. We weren’t officially dating at the time because we broke up 100 times, but he invited me back to our home for lunch. He made me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and cut the bread into quarters — the only way I like to eat it.
For some reason, I knew that this was it. He was ready to marry me.
(I was right.)
So that was fun to remember.
I hope you can spend some time thinking about the happiest moments in your life, today. You don’t need a wedding to remember why you are lucky to love and be loved. And you deserve a few minutes of good memories during a tough and otherwise boring Wednesday!
