I learned a lot about the people in my life following my stroke and open heart surgery. You tend to quickly recognize who your true friends are and who are those people who are not so sure if they have the moral fiber to truly be there as you go throw a pretty life-changing experience. Not to make light of it, but I think that the same is true of weddings.
I have heard that weddings can bring out the worst in people. True. I have witnessed this first hand, but more often than not, it is at other people's wedding. I am lucky enough to say that for the most part I have not witnessed this behavior, unless you want to include irrational rants and raves from the bride-to-be about scheduling, planning, and those tiny little details that one feels the desire to go over time and time and time again. So, aside from that I have been - for the most part - lucky. Lucky to the point that I have realized more and more every day how incredible the people are in my life. We have an amazing group of friends and family, people with whom we have laughed and cried; people who we have yelled at, and they have yelled right back. People who are wise enough to tell us when we are being foolish, and people who are innocent enough to think that aside from all of our faults we are super heros.
Between now and the day, we are allowed to behave like fools and feel like we have superhero powers. Because in my heart, we do have those powers. We can, and will, do anything.
