Sunday I had the honor of marrying Doug and Cathey. They are, first of all, lovely people, but this particular union of souls was very moving to me. It's one thing to watch young, starry-eyed couples come together full of love, and hopes and dreams and wishes for a life together. It's another to watch individuals who are seasoned by life and honed by its realities make the choice to marry. When they find and rejoice in a love that transcends hopes and dreams, and are armed with an arsenal of wisdom, fortitude, and endurance, it is truly a blessing to see. Both Doug and Cathey shed tears as they exchanged vows, and it was impossible to witness their pure overflowing joy and devotion to each other and not be moved as well.
Thanks, guys. Mazel Tov to you, and blessings on your life together.
