At this time, 21 years ago today, I was on my way to the hair salon to get my hair done for my wedding. It was a whirlwind romance, and on this particular morning I was letting myself feel the things I had been too busy to let myself feel…such as, is this the right thing to do? Have we rushed into this? What if things don’t work out???? And then as if by Divine Providence, I turned on the radio and this is the song that came on:

I smiled and sang along (I will never not sing along to the radio) and trusted that God had this and things would be okay. And yeah, there have been some ups and downs but we’ve managed to keep it together for 21 years with a lot of stubborn tenacity and a willingness to just let the annoying things go sometimes.

He makes me laugh, he keeps me safe, he sees the potential in me when I can’t…for better or for worse, he’s my lobster.
