2018 is setting up to be a year full of epic celebrations. I love weddings, everything about them is fun and exciting. Kenneth is learning to love weddings, since we have attended more than he ever imagined possible, or maybe we’re still working on getting his enthusiasm to match mine. Regardless he is a wonderful wedding date and we enjoy celebrating love.
This is part of my speech in Baton Rouge:
“Love is fluid, it can take on many shapes and forms. It’s more than a feeling, it’s tangible, it can be seen in actions, it can be transferred by a hug, it can be heard in a word. Love is my faith in a God who empowers me to love others because he first loved me. Love is smiles from strangers at the grocery store, holding the door open for me when we both know you’re tired of waiting on me to get there, and love is the investment in the success of others. With love, anything can be accomplished – the worst of days, the most devastating of diagnosis, and the feeling that the entire world is stacked against you.”
On Christmas morning I was asked to serve in a role that will be a huge first for me: I have the honor of presiding over the wedding ceremony of my sister, Casey, and my soon to be sister, Amanda. So, so, so excited!
So now to start reading, researching, and preparing for this amazing honor. Should I sing like in my other presentations? Crowd involvement is guaranteed. Bloody soldier costume like on Friends? No matter what, it’s going to be awesome. And this perfect boy is going to be a perfect addition, too.
