A Witness to Our Lives
We have 2 wedding anniversaries.
29 Nov 1999 – We were officially married @ROM in the presence of our families.
5 Mar 2001 – We were married in church in the sight of God before our families and friends.
In our years of marriage, we have always celebrated both anniversaries. Since last year, we decided that we’d just celebrate our church wedding anniversary because that really marked the beginning of our lives together as a married couple.
Last Thurs, CS was not home the usual time after work. Turned out he made a detour to buy roses for me in remembrance of our anniversary; and gave me a card which he had gone to the mall to buy during lunchtime that day. Love was manifested and felt.
Both of us have this favorite quote from the movie ‘Shall We Dance’ in which Susan Sarandon talks about the reason why she was married:
“Because we need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet… I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… all of it, all of the time, every day. You’re saying ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness.”
