Anita's Wedding Day

You are marrying today with the hopes and dreams
of your future before you both.
Try to remember that, at times, your dreams may be
different from one another.
For each person grows in her or his own space --
and the key may be in the sharing of those individual

Enjoy one another.
Be proud of each others talents and successes.
Encourage and support each others efforts as if
they were your own; as indeed they are.

Trust one another and be honest.
Yet remember that living successfully with someone;
loving them means being ready to forgive and forget.

Speak your thoughts and feelings kindly to one another.
Bitter words bring nothing but wounds and scars.
Above all, give your love to each other openly and freely.
