As a sucker for love stories, today’s royal wedding represents a lot of things: a reminder about miracles and fairy tales amongst others.
I think of just how different Harry and Meghan are…in terms of background and the experiences they’ve had….even down to their ages; she’s older.
But then I also see just how much richer even their marriage ceremony is because of those differences and just how much they’ve captured our hearts because of the whole fairy tale nature of the story and the marrying of two cultures.
I love how affectionate they are with each other. Honestly, for me it’s been a reminder that love can come in the most innocuous of ways; through a blind date. And that it can be beautiful!
Definitely, it’s not the same thing… but the relatable things: making a decision to love someone and being willing to do everything possible to be with them and to spend the rest of your life with them.
We do not know what tomorrow holds, but we pray they last the journey of marriage and that they continue to inspire young people to dream.
Happy marriage to Harry and Meghan!
