I was inspired to do this layout because the shots by Flea were really wonderful, and the words are perfect. These are the vows Mec and hubby said to each other on their wedding day. The words say:
"Please hold my hands, palms up, so you can see the gift that they are to you. These are my hands, that hold yours on our wedding day, as I promise to love you all the days of my life. These are the hands you will place with expectant joy against your stomach when God blesses us with a child, the same hands that will be so gentle when I hold our baby for the first time. These are the hands that will work long hours to earn money for you and our family, and the hands that will care for and discipline our children.These are the hands that will be nicked and bruised from fixing things around the house to make you more comfortable.These are the hands that will caress your body through the years, and will countless times wipe tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow and tears of joy. These are the hands that will comfort you in illness, and hold you when fear or grief weigh on your mind. These are the hands that will assure you of love and companionship, that someone is a witness to your life.
Please hold my hands, palms up, so you may see the gift that they are to you. These are the hands of your best friend, that are holding yours on our wedding day, as I pledge my love and commitment to you all the days of my life. These are the hands that will hold each of our children in tender love, soothing them through illness and hurt, supporting and encouraging them along the way, and letting them go when it is time. These are the hands that will massage tension from your neck and give you comfort when you are sick, and console you when you are grieving. These are the hands that will hold you tight as we struggle through difficult times, the hands that will hold you in joy and excitement and hope, and passionately love you and cherish you through the years. These are the hands that will give you support as I encourage you to pursue your dreams. And these are the hands that will assure you of love and companionship, as I choose to be a witness to your life."
This second layout is about Sam, Ditch and Ipe's little princess. Super cute!
Journaling reads: "What a joy to see a baby as cuddly and cute as you! No wonder your family is all over you, all the time. We are so grateful that you came out healthy and without complications. See, your Mommy slipped & got hurt about a couple of weeks before you were born. We were all worried. But look at you now! Amazing & such an angel, we cannot get enough of you!"
