As the wedding date approaches Mr. Pancakes and I have had several medical things that have come up which has allowed us to discuss issues around health and being married. I am glad that we have had a long engagement because it has allowed us to go through several experiences that we can discuss and deal with accordingly.
When you are about to get married, as females, we tend to think about the wedding, the beautiful house we are going to have, the awesome jobs and vacations and the babies that will look like the both of us. There is plenty of time for all the fantastic thing that will happen between us. I suppose the positives are great because it allows for a euphoric feeling. But these health related events have made me think more what our vows will mean when we say them:
I take you Mr. Pancakes/Mrs. Pancakes to be my (wife/husband),
to have and to hold from this day forward,
for better or for worse,
for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health,
to love and to cherish;
from this day forward
until death do us part.
It has brought a completely different meaning to the vows we will say to each other, only three months away. I’m humbled in having gone through these experiences just to give me a jolt of reality in the midst of all the excitement of the wedding planning.
God truly blessed me when he brought Mr. Pancakes into my life. He continues to be more than supportive and if anything i know now for sure that he is the man of my dreams.
