I’ve gotten teary eyed a bit at some of the weddings I’ve performed. Tonight, after performing the ceremony, I excused myself to a corner and wept for a moment. It all just came together in my head and I wept.
For the love these two men share.
For the love of their family.
For the joyful thing happening in front of me.
For the idea that someday I’ll find my own husband.
And for the men who died before this could happen.
I pushed the tears out of my eyes and went back to the party.
