So a lot of our friends are in and around the Marriage Zone.
Either just married, getting engaged, planning weddings or finally deciding that 'she's the one'.
It's a lovely feeling to be surrounded by all these lovey dovey boys 'n girls. *grin*
Dude and I are close to so many of them.
Guys I've known for a decade finally realise what they've always wanted in a woman and to then miraculously find she was right there - warms my heart.
A little girl I remember singing in a crowded room, all dressed in white with her hair in curls - got married last week and is a gorgeous Mrs. D'Cunha now.
A guy I've known so well and trusted so much - my 'call in the middle of the night and I'll be there' friend. He's in love and the soft smile on his face when I asked him if this was what he wanted..ohh to be a part of something so precious!
My little Biscotti who's all of 21 this month, sending me a song and telling me it was going to be her 'special wedding entrance' song for her dance troupe - bless!
Some of you are just married...and I think I've said the same thing to everyone.
Don't get me wrong. Be ready for the fights, the disagreements, the 'toilet lid, toothbrush,my side of the bed' conversations. There'll be times when you can't stand each other and literally feel like you married a woolly headed mammoth in disguise.
But then, there'll be the other times.
When you share a portion of curly fries while you're engrossed in an episode of Criminal Minds.
Then you suddenly glance at each after a suspense filled moment...and smile coz you love that you can enjoy it with each other.
When you play house. Putting up pictures, moving furniture, talking about what goes where. And you feel all warm inside coz you realise that Mr. Macho is a real homebody at heart who cares about the color of the rug just as much as you do.
When you cook together. Even if it's French Toast for dinner. It's breakfast to you, but coz he loves the way you make it - you still go ahead and everyone's happy - he gets his happy dinner and you're all goofy happy coz he likes it that much in the first place.
When he wakes up early just to drop you to work.
When he gets you a doughnut as a peace offering.
All the many hugs. Bless.
The good will always outweigh the bad. So much so you won't remember it.
(Ehh? Bad?? Whaaa?)
So congratulations y'all. Marriage is not for the weak hearted, but it rocks the boat like nothing else.
And for those of you, my special single ones - you've got it right. When you get that feeling that this is the one whose worst habit still makes you smile when you think of them...then you'll really know.
Till later, adieus.
