Reminiscing...

I am happy today.Had to open husband's mailbox to access some urgent mails(with his permission of course!) and saw that he has saved all the mails that we had exchanged during out courtship.So sweet.Most of them are quite funny though.Usual cribbing about work and pulling each other's legs but it is so much fun reading old conversations.Not a smidgeon of romance in any of them but we always had such an easy camaraderie.It was nice to remember why I chose him as my beau.:-)

We used to send poems to each other sometimes and I found one which I had sent.It is apparently a celtic wedding vow.Quite like it.Maybe you will too.

"You cannot possess me for I belong to myself



But while we both wish it, I give you that which is mine to give


You cannont command me, for I am a free person


But I shall serve you in those ways you require


and the honeycomb will taste sweeter coming from my hand"

"I pledge to you that yours will be the name I cry aloud in the night and


the eyes into which I smile in the morning


I pledge to you the first bite of my meat and the first drink from my cup


I pledge to you my living and my dying, each equally in your care


I shall be a shield for your back and you for mine


I shall not slander you, nor you me


I shall honor you above all others, and when we quarrel we shall do so in


private and tell no strangers our grievances"



"This is my wedding vow to you


This is the marriage of equals."
