This past week, I was asked if by chance I had the time to be part of an anniversary party for a couple who have been married 62 years. Did you read that! 62 years!! Wow, I’ve been married 30 years, and I think that’s a fantastic accomplishment. But 62 years, now that is something that truly needs to be acknowledged in a big, big way!
When the daughter of the couple asked me, I was sure I would already be booked with another function, but checked my calendar anyway. I did have a function to go to, but I could easily work the ceremony into my busy weekend schedule…..one filled with baby blessings, weddings and vow renewals already!
I believe that everything happens for a reason! Thank goodness I was able to participate in such a wonderful event, because being part of this family’s special vow renewal and anniversary celebration was the highlight of my weekend! I have never seen two people so in love, who have been together for so long. And, not only are they in love with each other, all six of their children (and their spouses) are in love with them too, which is amazing in a family as big as theirs, I think.
It have the privilege of being an integral part of helping many couples tie the knot over the years; actually, almost every weekend of my life, well in the summer months anyway. I thank God that it never ‘gets old’ for me; that each couple I meet, each family function I’m part of and every baby I have the honour of blessing brings true joy to my life. And what puts the icing on the cake is when I know I am standing in front of two people who are obviously in love with one another. It warms my heart to feel the energy of their connection; that magical glow that just pulls me in and sets my own heart on fire.
Thank you Universe for planting the seed in my mind and giving my intuition a little push, so I could start this journey 14 years ago. It’s been a huge blessing in my life.
Enjoy the rest of this day, and the week ahead.
With warm blessings,
