I posted this in my old blog nearly a decade ago....
As I stood next to Mike, watching Tiff descend down the stairs of the park in her gown, I couldn't help but to be amazed. Amazed at the fact that what once was juvenile acts and feelings that accompany high school, has through the years evolved into something as beautiful as a marriage. That through all the strife, heartache, difficulties and changes, these two persevered. This love has carried these two 9 and a half years, 2 different states, thousands of miles, different colleges, even different countries. But along the uneven and cracked road, love survived. Love grew. Love flurioushed. Love won.
As they both ascended back up the stairs as husband and wife, a choir of observers filled of friends and families, those who have been blessed to witness this couple grow, sang in union, "All you need is love, love, love..... love is all you need." And with each step up the stairs, their hands clasped together, I thought of how appropriate those lyrics were filling the springtime air. All you need is love.....
love is all you need.
Goodnight, Raleigh Boy.
