    The Key to Love
    The key to love is understanding…
    The ability to comprehend not only the spoken word
    But those unspoken gestures,
    The little things that say so much by themselves.
    The key to love is forgiveness…
    To accept each others faults and pardon mistakes
    Without forgetting, but with remembering
    What you learn from them.
    The key to love is sharing…
    Facing your good fortune as well as the bad, together.
    Both conquering problems, forever searching for ways
    To intensify your happiness
    The key to love is giving…
    Without thought of return,
    But with the hope of just a simple smile
    And by giving in but never giving up.
    The key to love is respect…
    Realising that you are two separate people, with different ideas.
    That you don’t belong to each other,
    You belong with each other, and share a mutual bond.
    The key to love is inside us all…
    It takes time and patience to unlock all the ingredients.
    It is the continual learning process that demands a lot of work….
    But the rewards are more than worth the effort…
    And that is the key to love!

    Another Irish Blessing
    May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    The rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
    May God be with you and bless you;
    May you see your children's children.
    May you be poor in misfortune,
    Rich in blessings,
    May you know nothing but happiness
    From this day forward.
    May the road rise to meet you
    May the wind be always at your back
    May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
    And may the hand of a friend always be near.
    May green be the grass you walk on,
    May blue be the skies above you,
    May pure be the joys that surround you,
    May true be the hearts that love you.

    It is sharing and caring,
    Giving & forgiving,
    Loving & being loved,
    Walking hand in hand,
    Talking heart to heart,
    Seiing through each other's eyes,
    Laughing together,
    Weeping together,
    For love that is shared is a beautiful thing
    It enriches our lives & makes our heart sing!


    I want to be your friend forever & ever,
    When hills are all flat,
    And the rivers run dry.
    When the trees blossom in winter
    And the snow falls in summer.
    When heaven & earth mix
    Not till then will i part from you.

    Just a couple from my friends wedding last friday, they got a list from the reigistry office x x
