twelve years ago…

April 22, 2007

…right now…I had just gotten married.

It was a gorgeous day, about 65 degrees, only a few clouds in the sky. We couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque wedding day, a more beautiful wedding Mass, or a better party to celebrate. And our marriage has been such a blessing…I look at my family today and, for all the ups and downs, I can’t imagine another life, or another love to spend it with.

Somehow I find myself far out of line
from the ones I had drawn
Wasn’t the best of paths, you could attest to that,
but I m keeping on.
Would our paths cross if every great loss
had turned out our gain?
Would our paths cross if the pain it had cost us
was paid in vain?
There was no pot of gold, hardly a rainbow
lighting my way
But I will be true to the red, black and blues
that colored those days.
I owe my soul to each fork in the road,
each misleading sign.
Cause even in solitude, no bitter attitude
can dissolve my sweetest find
Thanksgiving for every wrong move that made it right.



  1. Happy Anniversary! Wow, 12 years. That is such an accomplishment. Congrats to you both.

  2. Happy Anniversary sis! I was just telling a friend at church yesterday how you had a dessert buffet at your reception and how we made it all! Fun times.

  3. Hey! I took that li’l picture, didn’t I?

  4. Julie-
    Happy 12th anniversary! Beautiful writing! Congrats!


  5. Ahh…perhaps I should have credited the author? (LOL) …that’s “Thanksgiving” by Poi Dog Pondering, the song we danced to at our wedding reception. 🙂

  6. Happy Anniversary, Julie!! (Sorry I’m a little late.. 12 years! That’s awesome! Brian and I are right behind ya — what a ride it’s been eh?
