I have been putting together a family journal for Matt and I. It includes pictures (year to year) and text.
As the months continue on, I keep adding pages…
It includes all of our memories.Every funny thing that was ever said, any struggle that we have ever crossed.
Lately, I have been working on our wedding section of it…
Typing out all the speeches that were made… all the things I remember about that fabulous day.
I am so lucky to have them ‘save’ their speeches, so that I can go back and re-read their words of advice, their funny stories…
After the wedding is all said and done, it is easy to forget what had been said.
As I was typing out my moms speech..
I couldn’t help but tear up.
It was so beautifully written but even more beautifully said.
One part of it that stuck out to me was,
” Always love and respect each other.
Remember that a Bride and Groom are indeed best friends,
these come not with time, but with trust!
May you grow old together on one pillow.
May your life be filled with Happiness and Joy!”
I honestly cannot picture anything more beautiful than growing old together on one pillow,
With my one true love.
My BEST friend.
I love it when you make sure that I am warm during the wee hours in the morning,
and lift our covers to my chin and then slightly rub my back.
I love that you hold my hand before I drift off.
I love it that you let me hog the bed. And let me starfish.
I love how you still tell me I am beautiful when I crawl into bed with
no make-up, wearing your sweatpants, and your hoody.
You know I don’t like to be cold…
I love the person you are. I love the way you treat me like gold. I love how you put me first.
I just hope that in 40 years we are just like we are today.
Sharing the same pillow.
