From this mom's perspective, it felt alot like her birth day...as exhausting for sure (the emotion alone! so similar)--filled with hope and love...so much hope and love. and grace. a sacred day...with sacred words:
"... for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health,
to love and to cherish, until we are parted by death.
This is my solemn vow."
"I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, and with all that I am, and all that I have,
I honor you..."
