May you be brave in your love. May you be steadfast.
May you be truthful, patient, forgiving,
willing to be surprised, gracious, compassionate,
willing to yield, willing to bend,
unafraid of experiments and compromises,
undaunted by old fears and foolish notions of unexplained,
unarticulated but perfect harmony –There is harmony to be had, surely, and perfect imperfectness to revel in, but you are the heroes and heroines of this story, you are the authors and the objects of this narrative and you owe it to one another and the world to be as true and present and real and kind and flawed and beautiful and sometimes awkward and often uncertain but certainly willing to grow and learn and revel in the journey…
…because LOVE is our universal birthright, our greatest salvation, and our most unwavering truth – and now, together, you stand before friends and family and the world writ large and affirm your commitment to LOVE and to one another and this action is magical and transformative. You are now and will always be brave for it.
