The Mayor

Today is my wedding day. Yet, I still managed to publish a story for The February Writing Challenge. The first thing we learn is that a marriage is a bond, a contract and a responsibility. And if you believe in a higher power, the bond is also with god.

We need guidance as we move through life. We take advice from those who have been through it before. Whether you believe in a higher power or not, the important thing to remember is who is in charge. And with that, the mayor and the person in charge of my new household, and who rules my heart, is my wife.

I studied this video to learn for our First Dance
Today is day ten of the thirty day writing challenge (February edition) as arranged and hosted by Nicky and Mike over at WeWorkForCheese.com. Go check out their site to see what they wrote and see all the other participants.

  12. Wow, congratulations, Shawn. It actually took me a second to realize that this wedding day thing wasn't some kind of writing shtick. I'm impressed that you were able to post something so touching and to the point on your big day. I imagine you were in a bit of a time crunch.
