Togetherness is happiness. Togetherness is strength and it is the power acting behind every great steps towards life. My greatest power is my family – I meant my husband and my little charm, Elsa.
I didn’t know life would be this beautiful when we walked towards the altar together to change our wedding vows. I didn’t know that single addition in a relationship would bring more meaning to my entire life. I didn’t know that holding hands together would shower more miracles everyday. It all happened as they say, “You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you as you are to them”.
The craziest ever right mistake which I have ever done is marrying the man, my husband whom I never knew before wedding. We had seen each other thrice on three occasions. One on the first day of family meet, next is on the engagement day and the other is on the wedding saree selection day. When I said “YES” to him I had just seen him few minutes and it was all decided. We knew each other for 50 days and then we got married. We had no common friends and no family friends too. It was an arranged marriage.
It was all new and unknown to me. It all happened like a lightening. I felt I was left all alone in sinking ship in the middle of the ocean. Was so filled with fear and doubts about the new family but had faith somewhere inside that it’s gonna be all right.
The first day after my wedding at my in-laws place, we had all our close relations at home of my new extended family. They hosted a little party at home. They played music, danced, sang songs; they made us to dance (myself and my husband – it was embarrassing but not bad). They made me sing as well. I sang “only Hope by mandy moore” and dedicated it to my husband. It was all fun. I should say it was a feel OK moment. I felt so comfortable and that’s when all my fears about the new family flew.
The first day of my marriage is the day when I got strength and motivation to move forward with more optimism and lookup towards life.Together, we make a lovely family now. The promise which we made each other to stay long together on our wedding is still ringing in my heart. Till now we have seen all good and bad moments together. It all made us stronger with more hope for every other day. It’s worth more than words could ever explain. Togetherness is the main ingredient in the making of a family.
Together ===> Optimism ===> New hope for future
