Dust on the bottle other random musing’s

My husband was invited to a wedding over the weekend, and he was able to bring me along.  The wedding them was East meets West, and everyone was asked to dress up.  My husband and I, were thrilled to have another reason to wear our kilts.   For several years, we would go to some of the Scottish festivals that are held here in Ga, an after attending them in street clothes, we decided to buy kilts and try to go a bit more in style.   My husband’s bands family came over from Scotland in the late 1700’s to early 1800’s, and so we bought his kilt in the family tartan.  His family was part of the Mcpherson clan, they were also called the Cat Clan.  Their actual motto, when translated is Touch not but the cat, with a glove.  My family came from Ireland and supposedly Scotland, and falls under the Campbell clan, so my kilt is in that tartan.

What does this have to do with a wedding?  Well!!! Other than getting to dress up, it was so touching to be there and seeing how happy these two were.  While it was a small wedding, and they had it in their back yard, the care that they put into it was evident in everything they did.   It wouldn’t surprise me, if both the bride and the groom, had sore faces from all of the smiling they did.   It was more than evident that they truly loved each other and that they were sure they were for each other.   While I only knew two people there, if your counting my husband, it was a fun night and at times I didn’t want the night to end.  There is something about a wedding that for the most part, brings out the good in us all.  Call me a romantic, or optimistic, but weddings remind us of what happiness can be like,  and as I to quick glances at my husband during the ceremony, I thought back to that day so many year’s ago, when my husband and I got married and how happy we were and how we felt ten feet tall.    Being in love, sometimes remind me of the country song that I like listening to, it’s by David Lee Murphy and is called Dust on the bottle.   One of the refrains talks about how love is like a fine wine, it get’s better with time.   As my grandparents told me when I got married, your going to fall in and out of love with your spouse, but what you do is about it is what’s important.   My grandparents had been married for over 60 year’s, when my grandfather passed away and I remember as a child, wanting to have the love that I saw.    Love is about setting aside what you want sometimes and making sure that you are taking care of the other person.    Like the farmer, we too must make sure that we are weeding, mulching and watering our marriage’s and relationships.    Our family, friends and the people we meet, all help shape us to who we become or will become.     The experiences that we have, are a lot like being a glass blower or a blacksmith, we have to be heated to make the glass or metal, supple enough to work with.  If we are not heated and worked enough, we will never become that finely balanced sword or the multicolored ornament to hang from a window.   Lot’s of us are the diamond in the rough that need a more care, to make it the beauty of nature that it is.
