I always say we should make sure to celebrate the happy moments. This morning I am sitting watching the Royal Wedding. Not only is it some of the most spectacular visual eye-candy I have seen in a long time (between the architecture, her dress and tiara, the uniforms, the hats and some unique looking people), but in my heart, I feel genuine excitement for the royal couple. The singing by the children is angelic, and I hope the royal couple will need a newborn photographer and look me up!
As thrilled as I am to be able to watch the wedding on TV, and to know millions of other people across the world are doing the same… I feel absolute sorrow that the one person who would have loved more than anything to be a living eye-witness, is not here today.
We should all throw such an event when something is to be celebrated… there are all too many gatherings of sadness, mourning, and loss…yet we often take the happy events and minimize them in some way. May the Royal Wedding stand as a symbol to us all across the world, to embrace one-another and to truly celebrate the magical moments in our lives. We only live once… and I think if we live in the present and celebrate the magnificent glory of the moment, then we just might live happily ever after.
p.s. I feel like I should include a photograph (or two). These are not “professional portraits” as you will see. But, in fact, taken with my iphone at 11p.m. last night. My oldest daughter (pictured second), recently bought her own shoes with her own money. I don’t know if the incentive to sleep in them had anything to do with the Royal wedding at all… or maybe they just wanted to wake up ready for school. Either way- a true-life Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) lives here (two of them, actually) :).
