“Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Yo, Yo…”

January Slide Show #7 (1-11-11!!!!!!!)

I adore this picture of my family. This was almost two years ago at the wedding of my niece, “Chuck”.  As we stood around waiting for the big family picture, I yelled for a look in my direction for just one shot.  I’m pleased with the outcome.   It looks like all of our other gatherings: unorganized happiness.  Look at all those amiable faces.  Have you ever seen a friendlier bunch of people?

I like weddings.  Whether I am close to the person or not, I can generally be moved to tears.  I cheer for them deep inside and then, well,  I just get on with my life.  But for some reason, Chuck’s wedding was different.  I don’t know if it was the stage of life I was in, or if it’s that Chuck and her hubby are extra special people (cause they are), but it seems like after their wedding, I was pondering marriage for weeks after wards.  My thoughts could easily be a few blog posts. I’ll spare you (for now), but my realization was that I needed to do better and be better, that my marriage is my most important work on this earth.  It is my Great American Novel, my Masterpiece, my Piéce de résistance.  Yeah, when I put it that way, I have some work to do.

Happy 1-11-11!

    Somehow through “google reader” your posts aren’t coming up as frequently as you post (probably a fault on my not-so-tech-savvy end), but I love this post. You are so sweet and so well with your words. One of my all time favorite pictures from my wedding is of Chunk #1 kissing me on the cheek. Loved that.
