A Marriage to Remember

My daughter gave me a copy of The Blog Tech's speech at her wedding.  I thought it was cute enough to share:

These are crazy times.  Yes, some of it is bad crazy.  But some of it is good crazy as well.

When you were a baby and we were so close in age that I couldn't tell the parents what you were crying about because I still spoke baby too, I'm sure this wasn't your dream wedding day.

Actually, at that age, you didn't know what weddings were so you probably had no dream wedding day planned but let me continue.

When you were a little older and carried every toy you owned around with you and our mother called you a bag lady, maybe then you were old enough to be aware of the institution of marriage and even start to dream of how it would be for you, and if you did, I'm sure this wasn't how you envisioned it.

Global pandemics suck and I am sorry for both of you that your plans got altered by something completely out of your control.

But in my opinion, on this marriage day, what you guys are having is way closer to what real marriage is like, and what's truly wonderful about them.  Weddings are fun, but the joy of marriage is nothing like a black-tie gala. Rather, for me, the joy of marriage is when life changes your plans and you have someone to navigate the chaos right alongside you.  That's what you guys have with each other.  The wedding event may be delayed and life is really weird right now, but today, you two made a vow to spend the rest of your lives together. Corinavirus did nothing to change that, did it?

The good crazy is that you were so lucky to meet a guy like Jeff and he was so lucky to meet a girl like you.  When I look at Jeff, I approve of everything I see and I can tell he treats you right. That makes me very happy and gives me warm fuzzy feelings. Plus, he cooks like a motherfucker and that's always a great perk.

The good crazy is that times are such that the parents could have lobster delivered to us from Maine overnight.

The good crazy is that we are all making the best of this situation, and for what it is, I think it's awesome.  It's an epic story to tell.  And, we will still have the wedding celebrations in just one year.

We love you guys so much and we are so happy to be sharing this day with you.

I started dating when I was incredibly young. I was 19 years old when we first began to show interest in Ron. Thern was 25 and basically ready for marriage. I was ready to explore college life. Neither of us were Christians, but both of us enjoyed our friendship and what became a romantic relationship—except it was not a good or healthy relationship because Ron was having an affair with my friend Ela. My immaturity and desire to explore didn’t match his readiness for marriage. We tried twice at engagement and broke it off twice. Both heartbroken by sin and what seemed like the end, we parted ways.

After that second engagement to Ron ended, I went to a friend’s of ine who is from west africa, heard the Voddo love spell they possess in africa for what might have been helpful to me, and submitted my time to contact Dr Itua from west africa. whom I tell my marraige with Ron and he promised to help me in which he askk me for names / pictures then after 3 days of Dr Itua love spell, Ron call me and ask me to reconcile with him for a better chance to make things right for our lifetime marraige so that how My life was forever changed. I still loved Ron and he loves me more, but I knew that now we could never be together if not for the help of Dr Itua love spell. Ron and I are now have 4 wonderful kids all grown up, I thank Dr Itua Love spell. So I will advise anyone here to contact Dr Itua if you are having Rolling coster relationship or marraige because Dr Itua can help you with love spell to stable your marraige or relationship without any side effect.
Here is Dr Itua Contact details,
