bed of roses

there is something so very refreshing seeing a newly married couple dance the night away during their wedding celebration. they have sticky stares only for each other. their arms wrapped around each other no matter what music is playing. smiling with a lot of emotion, with promises of love, happiness and togetherness forever and ever.

oh if only married couples could look back at their own wedding day and re-live the feelings and promises of that magical moment. married life is indeed a bed of roses. and real roses have thorns. the marriage may be blissful but there are challenges to be faced. some sacrifices to be made. some hurt along the way. all these make it difficult for couples to look back on that beautiful wedding day. truth is, it is not even enough to re-live the magic of that day when thorns get in the way. it takes more than looking back. what is important is to take care of the now to better the later. through the years, husband and wife grow and change. their love may even take another form. what is essential is that the love is there, shown and expressed through word and deed. thoughtfulness, affection, understanding, respect, and even willingness to forgive. love should be nurtured to grow and cope with change. only then will it be easier to look back and re-live the magic of years and years ago. to dance again like there's nobody watching. then celebrate the real magic which is staying together.

When we were young, we see a married couple and remember the words "and they lived happily ever after", now we attend weddings we hear the song "how do you keep the music playing?" ...

We're at the crossroads...or did we just get real?
