“O, beware... of jealousy; it is the green-eyed monster” ~ William Shakespeare
I'm not that chick that freaks out if her husband mentions someone is attractive. I don't try to keep up with the Joneses. And even when there is a size 2 walking in front of me, I don't have envious thoughts.
But sometimes. Just sometimes the green-eyed monster rears up in me.
Every Sunday I take some time to read the newspaper, browse the ads and laugh with the comics. My journey through the paper always leads me to read the celebration section.
Here comes the monster!
See, I never had a wedding.
S & I had a quick courtship and an even quicker marriage ceremony. In a lawyer's office with only his mother in attendance.
There aren't any pictures of us. No flowers to be seen. Not even a cake to celebrate. In fact I wore a green dress.
I always look at those brides with envy because they got what I didn't.
Then I come to my senses and beat back that green-eyed monster.
Wedding or not, I have a happy marriage with a good man who loves every part of me and never hesitates to let me know it. He spoils me like no other would. This man that has taken on my family and made it his own, is my soul mate. My valentine. Til death do us part.
I wouldn't trade that for a million white dresses.
