It rained on our wedding day. And the rain turned to snow. And it was beautiful.
I have thought a lot about that day and there is one thing that overwhelms me again and again:
The people that I love...hundreds of people...drove through the storm, and stood in a ridiculously long line to wish us well.
I would look up from time to time and my eyes would fill with tears at the sight of friends I haven't seen in years...men and women who have influenced my life in such positive ways.
One of my dearest friends...someone I haven't seen in well over 8 years...flew from Seattle to be there. When I saw him standing in line I was overcome with emotion. I didn't know he was coming. I had a chance to talk with him and told him how much I appreciated his friendship. I gave him a hug and told him he was one of the best friends I have ever had. His eyes filled with tears and he said, "You too Platt...you too."
To feel love...in any form...is a blessing...and the day of our wedding was full of it.
