The Key To Love

Mr. Violet and I had a small after party after the wedding. It turns out that there was a bit of guy/girl drama going on that day between different couples. I won’t get into the specifics but I was really surprised and a bit turned off to learn that it was happening on our big day. One of my GMs said that it just goes to show how hard relationships are. He considers us a role model couple because we made it work. It was really sweet when he said that to me because I never thought of us as a perfect couple of any sort. We fight and argue just like anyone else. In fact, there were points in our lives where we almost gave up. Of course, we didn’t because we both had enough faith in each other and truly loved one another. And here we are, united at last.

So, ladies and gents, for those of you that want to know the key to love, what is it? This is my answer; our reading at our ceremony, recited by our BM Sharrie.

“The Key To Love”

“The key to love is understanding …
The ability to comprehend not only the spoken word,
but those unspoken gestures,
the little things that say so much by themselves.

The key to love is forgiveness ….
to accept each others faults and pardon mistakes,
without forgetting, but with remembering
what you learn from them.

The key to love is sharing …
Facing your good fortunes as well as the bad, together;
both conquering problems, forever searching for ways
to intensify your happiness.

The key to love is giving …
without thought of return,
but with the hope of just a simple smile,
and by giving in but never giving up.

The key to love is respect …

realizing that you are two separate people,

with different ideas;
that you don’t belong to each other,
that you belong with each other, and share a mutual bond.

The key to love is inside us all …
It takes time and patience to unlock all the ingredients
that will take you to its threshold;
it is the continual learning process

that demands a lot of work …

but the rewards are more than worth the effort …
and that is the key to love.”

    […] For some reason, I forgot that I make cards (DIY overload perhaps?)! I could have made the cards, printed our own non-pro photo to include and have it sent already. I guess it’s because I didn’t expect to get really great non-pro shots, but fortunately, we did get a few nice shots. My favorite so far was posted in “The Key to Love“. […]
