**IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED, DO NOT READ THIS**
A couple of posts back, I mentioned plans to attend our friends' commitment ceremony. The daughter and I were there and it was lovely...very touching and very special. I took lots of pictures and was going to post them all and share them with you, but with a couple of days to think that through, I have changed my mind. My perogative. My choice. I am just overwhelmed at the number of people that have such strong opinions about this. I think that it's tough enough to find love and to be happy, so if you find it, grab it and run!
I also think that my friends are very courageous to step out and make vows to each other knowing what difficult times may be in their future. These are not youngsters...they are grown and have had an opportunity to figure out who they are and what is right for them. If you had the opportunity to READ their vows, without knowing who spoke them...you would have been swept away by their love for each other. I just don't feel that you can help who you fall in love with. I wish them happiness and joy and love from the bottom of my heart.
The eyes see only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.
