Every time I attend a wedding, I start believing in love all over again. That love is about trust, strong commitment and communication. I believe that it takes effort and a commitment to choose to love one person whole-heartedly and dearly and unlike fairy tales, love doesn’t just happen.
I mean, yes, love does happen. Usually for the first moments your eyes meet, the first few months where it’s the “honeymoon” period. It happens to start the ball rolling. And after that, fate is in your hands and you get to choose and dictate the path that it follows after.
Today, my dear girlfriend made a commitment to her now husband, and he to her. The wedding was beautiful and the speeches brought tears to our eyes. Congratulations my dear Rachel, I wish you both eternal happiness and that you’ll both wake up everyday, falling in love with each other over again. 🙂
The lovely bride. Rachel declared to us during our JC days at the tender age of 18 that she’ll marry her first boyfriend. We were rather skeptical, until today. Yes, Timothy is her first boyfriend, and she too, is his first girlfriend. How sweet!!
Jasmine, also my fellow JC and touch-rugby mate. I used to play touch rugby lots!! Haha. No one believes me now.
That’s my best friend, Glenda in the middle back from secondary school days. We were from CHIJ-Secondary (Toa Payoh), if you’re wondering. She’s a mother now!! 🙂
Glenda, Me, Jasmine and Yuqi (Sparkle Qi from another of my girlie group of giggly girlfriends.) I got to know each of these girls in the picture at different junctures of my life, but we all ended sitting at the same wedding table because we are all connected either by self or spouse in one way or another! Small small world!!
…and the beautiful couple.
I’ll leave you all with a beautiful verse from Corinthians 13:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
🙂 It’s Christmas Eve.
