Have a lovely wedding day, Minx1969!!!

I know there have been a lot of newcomers to SR over the past year or so, however I'd like to take a moment to wish one of the oldies all the best for a really special weekend coming up - Minx's wedding to L.

I remember how her sponsor suggested (strongly!) not to date for a year, which for a woman in her mid 30s was a tough ask. But she trusted her sponsor, and the program, and she worked her arse off to deal with her $hit in a big way and not get distracted by all those lovely boys out there. And lo and behold, just as the year was up, who should walk into her life but L.

It has been a bit of a trial to get to this week, with various family issues along the way, however the bond between Minx and L held true and they are stronger now than ever before.

I'd just like to wish Minx and L all the very best for the big day and for the rest of their lives together and hope that the rest of the F&F board will do likewise.

L is a supremely lucky man and I am honored to be able to call you a friend, Minxy. And to think that it's all down to a couple of drunks!

Now how can I resist those good wishes?

Alcoholism is rearing it's ugly head today in L and my family but thank god for my friends, my program and my sponsor (who will be at the wedding).

We may not have our families there due to circumstances beyond our control (see STEP 1) but we have each other and my lovely friends!

Best wishes for a long and happy marriage, Minx! Here is my toast. It is from "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran.

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.

You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.

Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness,

And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

And stand together, yet not too near together:

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

Minx: I'm new here but wanted to say congrats! I've been reading your old posts and have found a lot of similarities between your story and mine. I just ended my relationship with xabf, also a musician, so I am relating and learning!

Anyway...Have a great day! I'm from AZ and know it's a beautiful time of year there!
