I attended a funeral today. I didn't know the woman personally but was asked to participate in a few musical numbers for the service. I was soooo MOVED by the entire service. I cried my eyes out today.
The story of the womans life is incredibly tragic yet TRIUMPHANT. She passed to the next world giving life to her 7th child. Her friends, her father, her siblings, and finally HER HUSBAND were pillars of strength. Just think -- that man must raise seven children without his wife. His reflections on HOW he met his wife and HOW he knew she was THE ONE had the entire congregration in stitches; in tears.
I sat there at the funeral service, listening to all the speakers and had to reflect on my husband and how he TRANSFORMS my world everyday. He is so wonderful. We have the MOST stimulating conversations about race, religion, politics, 9-11, alphabet soup agencies... LOL...
I have so much aspirations for him, for us. He allows me into his world like that... in a way I have never experienced before. I can PLAN my life, our life, like we will be together forever -- cuz WE WILL. I never have to wonder where his head is at because at the heart of our relationship is his deep committment to US and I am so grateful for that.
Though I spent my Saturday morning at such a morbid function of our human behaviour -- I was reminded of the love of my life. Today, he's my SATURDAY LOVE!!
