To Be Best Friends Forever

Just about four years ago, I fell in love with my best friend.

It was sort of unexpected, but it was the best thing that could have happened to me. I was a single mother, leaving the city that I loved for another city that I loved to start fresh.

Last night, Greg and I were watching “The Vow” and I couldn’t help but wonder what life would be like if one day one of us woke up, not remembering the other. My heart says we’d fight to remember, but it’s hard to know at what point our “missing years” would take us back to.

Hopefully, we’ll never have to find out. Until then, Greg, I’d like to add something to my vows to you. remind you of a part of my vow to you…“I Becky, take you, Greg, as my best friend for life, my soulmate, and my companion”.

Thank you for lifting me up when I am down, for making me smile, and understanding my dreams.

(See, sometimes memory loss happens quicker than you’d think. As we watched the movie, I kept saying I wished we had Dad say, “I now pronounce you man and wife, and best friends forever”…but that sort of was taken care of in the vows.)
