“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!”
I did it! I married a good man. I married a man I have been friends with for a lot of years. It is time to start again fresh. Fresh and happy. We married in my parents living room, they signed as our witnesses. All my sisters and my brother were there. Most of their spouses made it, too. Some of their kids. My daughter and granddaughter were there. It was a wonderful day. One I hope to remember all the days of my life. I want to remember how lucky I am to have him. This is the man I want to look at every morning and smile. We deserve this. We deserve now. I hope you are all as blessed as we are.
