I met Mike in a very strange manner.....
It was nearly like a pre-arranged marriage.... not really.
It's just he was friends with my parents first.... how can you not love someone who already loves your parents?
I met Mike 30 January 2016.
My Father asked if he could assist me to move some furniture out of a store room. Funny that he suggested we braai after a hard day's of work.....
He did see my photo in my parent's corridor July 2015 but I was involved in a relationship until December 2015.
The next thing it was Valentines Day and we became closer.... dinner... and as we got home I made us a coffee and threw my legs over his lap. The sign he has asked the Lord for since his wife passed away....
He took met to a rugby game at Durban stadium and asked me to get engaged the evening. We missed our flight the morning as we were chatting... so had to use up the current ticket and flew up his son, and had our own photographer that evening. It was an expensive mistake to miss our flight.
Mike wanted to get married on the same day as my Dad's birthday, 14 October but I thought it was too quick and suggested December 2016. As time drew closer I thought it was a good idea but that fell on a Friday. My Dad has liver cancer and I was scared that anything could happen before December. So the Saturday was an awesome decision, the 15th!!
God really sent me the most wonderful hubby.... Mike is 13 years elder than I am but still so young of heart, body and soul. I would say he still acts like a 53 year old. Caring, loving, accepting my kidz as his own.
I would love for you to have a look at my vows in my photos. Carefully prepared and meant out of my heart.
I know that Mike was sent by the Lord - maybe the 2 angels in heaven were looking after us. My x-husband who passed away in July 2015 and his wife.....
All I know is that I love this man dearly and the evening of our reception (after a long drought) we were blessed with heavenly rains....the biggest and best symbol!!!
Sparkie, you are my everything! Till death do us part.
Jy is die room op my Cuppacino.
Jy is die wind in my seile.
Vir jou sal ek altyd LIEFHE IN HOOFLETTERS!
By jou sal ek bly tot die dood ons skei!~
Mike het vir my die lied Droomvrou gespeel... gaan luister gerus na die woorde.
...jou ring sal ek vir altyd dra (hy't vir meer as 10 jaar nooit 'n ring gedra nie).
...hier staan ek nou... en ek groet jou Pa (te oulik!, omgedraai en vir sy nuwe pa gewaai).
Baie mense was al by baie troues.... ons s'n was uniek.... baie het gese nog nooit by so lekker troue gewees nie.
Dit was omdat die liefde geskitter het in ons teenwoordigheid. Die spark tussen my en Sparkie het almal aangevoel.
PS: Meneer, het die vorige dag gaan golf speel saam al die seuns en niks sonbrandroom gesmeer nie, geen hoed nie. Seuns wou ook nie vir hom 'n golfkarretjie gee nie so hy het gery op 'n fiets.
Daarom al die "rooi gesig" fotos.
