29: When I was 6 years old, I knew I was different from other kids. I could be alone in my mind and enjoy nature quietly. But I came to realize that I felt incomplete when I was alone. I looked for comfort with the other kids, needing to be around them, but I felt like I never fully fit in. As a child I learned that to not feel alone, people got married. I knew in an instant that I would marry the person who filled the void I carried in silence. Somehow I knew I’d meet that person when I was 16, but when I was 6, ten years seemed like a long time to wait for a soul mate. Ten years later, we met under unlikely conditions. Other friends would come and go, but we never went long without talking, despite us never really fitting the definition of friends. We would instant message long into the night, joke on cell phones, and web cam chat online to keep the distance at bay. We needed each other, but we thought it couldn’t happen. Another ten years after we met, almost to the day, we are joining our souls at long last. If I could tell my 6 year old self that it would be twenty years to light that darkness, I think I would have feared being old on my wedding day! -Andrell The first thing I ever knew of you was your laugh, and then your smile. From the moment I turned around that fateful day in World Cultures class, I was yours. The circumstances that arranged for us both to first meet were unlikely; both of us leaving one parent to live with the other, starting at a new school, and having that first chance encounter even though we never had a single class together. We never knew how similar our situations were, how perfect we would have been, how much we needed one another. You’ll never know just how much I wish I had tried harder to hold onto you. You left, and I didn’t chase you. I would have done anything to keep you in my life, but I was young, and didn’t know how. You were the one that got away, but luckily not far enough. -Aaron | OUR VOWS
30: You always told me you knew this was it because you felt at home with me – never another. Throughout my adult dating life, I’ve been flighty. But with you I have no fear of marriage. I’m eager to be wed to you. I have always run when things got tough. But with you I stay and work things through. I have always looked for the next move, the next thing to do. Yet now all I want is to be with you, wherever and however that may be. I’ve always looked for support, but instead found weights, yet you are flexible and still are always there for me. All this time I’ve never known I was on the lamb, never having a place to stay that was neither a cage nor an open plain. Now I realize what I’ve been looking for, the words found in a love song, “You put your arms around me and I am home.” -Andrell I believe fate brought us together, not just once, but twice. It took our paths seven years to reunite, and those seven years may have been what we needed to be ready for each other. For as long as I could remember, long before you had even met me, I had been haunted by a deep emptiness inside. Until this week, I had never known you shared that same condition. I learned to deal with it eventually, after some dark years. Even so, it was always there with me until you came back into my life. I cried the day I realized the hole was filled. It was a moment I will never forget. I was holding you, and simply felt at peace. You complete me, and I will never let you go again. -Aaron | OUR VOWS
31: I promise to always support your crazy ideas and inventions. I promise to always support your ever changing interests. I promise to make room for all your tools and spare parts. I promise to love every single stray animal you bring home. I promise never to abuse your memory for my own personal gain. I promise to remember the important things, no matter how many sticky notes I have to use. I promise to stop telling people you're my little spoon. I promise I will always be your little spoon. I promise to never take for granted all the things you do for me, no matter how small the gesture. I promise to never stop doing all the little things. I promise that no matter how old, bald, wrinkly, and gassy you get, I will look upon you with love and fondness, if not attraction. I promise that no matter how old, gray and saggy you get, you will always be beautiful to me, forever and always. I promise to never forget how lucky I am to have you. I promise no matter what our future holds, I will help bare your burdens and share all my blessings. I promise to follow you in your quest to fulfill your dream. I promise you will always be the most important thing in my life. I promise to remember the key to love is forgiveness, to accept each others' faults and pardon each others' mistakes. I promise to remember the key to love is forgiveness, to learn from each others' mistakes, instead of repeating them. I promise to try to never go to bed angry. I promise to never let you go to bed angry. | OUR VOWS
