I had hairy legs when I got married...


I didn't have perfect skin...
I didn't have a perfect body...
I didn't have a perfect dress...
I didn't have perfect cake...
I didn't have perfect hair...
I don't have perfect memories....
I didn't plan on being high on Vicodin when I got married...
I didn't have my beautiful outdoor ceremony...I got snow...
I didn't have trees alight with fire in every picture...
I certainly didn't plan on spending the night before my wedding in ER...
I forgot to buy pie for dessert...
I forgot to ask someone to watch the punch bowl or even make punch (I love you Kelly)
I didn't have gluten free cupcakes for my dear friends... ( I had gluten free cupcake liners I was ashamed to serve)
I forgot to make sure the church was unlocked or even to make sure someone would be at church in time for my flowers and cake to be delivered...
I forgot about 50 pictures I wanted taken...
I forgot my cousin buddy is a devious practical joker who might ferret my siblings away to pull nasty pranks on our honeymoon suite...( aka our bedroom) kool-aid in the shower honestly...
I barely had time the morning of my wedding to take a shower much less anything else did I even brush my teeth??...
I didn't get to hug so many dear friends at my wedding I know they were there but I missed seeing them hugging them on that day ( this means you Danae)
I didn't get to tell one of my bridesmaids goodbye and thank her for being my lifelong friend (I love you Deana)
I feel like there are still a million people to thank for making my wedding what it was I'm sure it was beautiful I don't remember but I see thru pictures... I'm so glad my photographers were there...
I didn't get to hug my "least" favorite Aunt goodbye and tell her how Thankful I was that she was there what a joy it was to see her and how much praying with her before the ceremony meant to me...
Can a wedding be perfect? Can it be everything you'd hoped dreamed and planned... I guess not but I know God is perfect He smiled down on our wedding and was pleased I know this because God saw fit to bring Steven Louis Goble into my life and God saw fit to make me his wife... and who am I to argue with the most perfect God... God orchestrated every moment of the day every gift of love every hand that helped was his blessing so why should I care that my legs were hairy... I was still a beautiful bride and ready willing and no longer waiting to be Steve's wife....

When you look back you'll realize that it was perfect, even if it wasn't. I look back at me and Sam's wedding and it wasn't what I had always planned as a little girl, but it was perfect for us. Perfect is no fun anyway. :)
