From the Old SC Lady

I know you will never remember my name, but you will remember someone sat by me when I was going to Cal. on June 10, 2012, and she really was different. (That is a nice way to think of me.)  This is something I would like for you and your wife to remember about married life.

How to Make a Beautiful Life Together.

-Let love be your shelter. The world is noisy and confusing at times, so make a home that is a haven, a peaceful place where you can listen to your hearts and savor the comfortable closeness you share.

-No matter how busy you are, make time for yourselves. Hold hands. Unwind. Surprise each other. Find little chances every day to show you’re grateful to be partners, to be friends, to be married.

-Life is not perfect. You will make mistakes, but each time you meet life’s challenges together, you will grow wiser, stronger, surer of your love.

-Cherish your yesterdays. They are irreplaceable, souvenirs of your journey through life.  Make memories that will bring smiles and sighs whenever you look back. (Look back often.)

-Look forward too.  Dream together. Plan together.  Make promises to keep.  Believe in your tomorrows because tomorrows are what forever is made of.

-To make love last, put each other first.  That is the way to make a beautiful life together, the kind of life you both deserve so much.

I know this sounds a little off the wall but, as I told you, my son just got married yesterday, and this is what I found to send him. You have been so kind to me, and your wife and kids are lucky to have you.  I just wanted to wish this life for you and the ones you love.

Just remember the lady from South Carolina that sat by you for four hours.  And at the end of our trip felt blessed by God that he put you in my life for even this short time.

Be Blessed. Be Safe. And Be Happy.
“one old SC Lady”
