the wedding vow

Cristina, I could promise to hold you and to cherish you. I could promise to be there in sickness and in health. I could say 'til death do us part.

But I won’t.

Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope, and I do not stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful.

I am sure. I am steady.

And I know that I’m a hard man. Take them apart, put them back together, I hold them in my hands. I am a hard man. So this, I am sure, you are my partner, my lover, my very best friend. My heart, my heart beats for you, and on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this:

I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands.

I promise you ME.

This is what marriage is really all about:

He ordered one hamburger, one order of French fries and one drink. The old man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half. He placed one half in front of his wife. He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them kept looking over and whispering. You could tell they were thinking, "That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them."

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table. He politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said they were just fine - They were used to sharing everything.

The surrounding people noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said "No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything."

As the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked "What is it you are waiting for?"

She answered :

Why do people say life is short?
when its the longest of them all
why does life give you heartbreak?
but not expect you to fall
Life has great characters
but a complicated story
each person's life is different
tears, laughs and the glory
but life has a meaning
but the answer cant be told
one day we will work it out
when we are tired and old
Sometimes you just look around,
find yourself people who are much better than you,
maybe its always been like that,
and maybe its not just you............
Your always around your friends,
but somehow they just don't care,
they're all ignoring you,just all of them.....
When your not yourself,
people don't like you,
cause all of them know,
your not you,
point is even if,
you were you,
would they care??.....
In this world,
you only get to live once,
so why not make the best of it,
instead of living it the way you'd regret it...
