Yesterday I posted what I wanted/needed in my second half of life. Today I am posting B’s.
First of all, just so you know, I asked B if it was okay to post this. To my surprise he said yes. This is his list of what he wants in the second part of his life with me. It won’t come as a surprise to those who know us that his list is very different than mine. Much more compact. Remember, I’m the one with the words. Yet, what he wrote touched me deeply because I knew it was from his heart and soul. All of it.
The morning we were to go to breakfast to discuss our relationship; I got into the car and our wedding picture was there along with some flowers. B said that before we went to breakfast he wanted to read what he had written and so with tears in his eyes and a catch in his throat this is what he read:
In the name of God, I B take you C to be my wife, to have and to hold for all our remaining days, for better or worse ,for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish all the remaining days of my life, this is my solemn vow.
I love you!
