|I Fell In Love Again Published: 28.07.2008 | Author: Bo Sanchez | Category: Self Improvement Life is About Creating Moments
I just came from Boracay.
And I fell in love with the loveliest woman on the planet.
And on the white powdery sands of this beautiful island http://www.hockeyducksproshop.com/hoodie/ , I got married again.
But I鈥檓 getting ahead of the story.
First of all, I had to propose a decent proposal.
I did it at our regular weekly prayer meeting called the FEAST in Manila.
As a surprise.
Marowe, who knew nothing of my plan, was sitting at the front row. At the end of my talk, I went down the stage, stood in front of her, planted one knee on the ground, and whipped out a diamond ring in a red little box.
鈥淢arowe, will you marry me鈥gain?鈥?p>
With tears streaming down her cheeks, she said, 鈥淥f course!鈥?p>
The next day, we flew to Boracay for our wedding鈥攑art two.
With us were our two boys, plus both sides of our family, plus Fr. Steve Tynan, my spiritual director. All in all, 28 people.
Before I tell you what happened, let me give you a little background鈥?p>
Ten years ago, my wife wanted a small, private wedding.
But we didn鈥檛 have one. Because I wanted everyone who attended the FEAST to join us. I explained to her that my Community is my spiritual family and I couldn鈥檛 think of not celebrating this great event without them. She was convinced and we had a grand wedding attended by a thousand people.
Expensive, right? Wrong. The reception was potluck. I asked everyone to bring food and they did. When we ended, people brought home bags of food.
But that was ten years ago.
Today was going to be different, I told her.
I promised Marowe that our second wedding would be very, very private.
So private, it will only be attended by 28 people. Just parents, brothers, sisters, nephews, and nieces.
Let me describe to you that incredible event.
Early in the morning, we marched off to the beach.
I was wearing鈥攚hat else鈥攁 pair of blue jeans and a white top.
I requested all the guests to do the same.
My bride, on the other hand, wore a simple, knee-high, white sundress that blew in the gentle wind. In her hand, a bouquet of pink tulips. She was a picture of loveliness.
Fr. Steve, who was also present in our wedding ten years ago, was again officiating our Renewal of Marriage Vows.
With the blue sky above us, the majestic sea in front of us, and the shiny sand on our feet, we said our 鈥淚 Do鈥檚鈥?again.
I cannot describe the joy I felt.
I knew I created a memory.
When Should You Splurge?
When You Create Memories
I鈥檓 a preacher of the simple life.
In fact, I wrote two books on simplicity. And my third book on money, the 8 Secrets of the Truly Rich, I exhorted everyone to save and invest.
Today, I鈥檓 asking you to splurge and invest.
That鈥檚 right. Splurge!
I splurged for that diamond ring in that red little box.
I splurged for our Boracay trip.
I splurged for the pink tulips.
But it was all worth it.
I was still investing. But of a different kind.
I was investing on memories.
I now believe that life is about creating memories
When we鈥檒l be both happy ninety years olds, still holding hands in the sunset of our lives, we鈥檒l look back at our tenth wedding anniversary. And we鈥檒l cherish the fantastic moment of getting married all over again on the beach of Boracay, surrounded by the special people we love.
And we鈥檒l say, as we do now, 鈥淚t was all worth it.鈥?p>
