“Love conquers all. Let us too surrender to love.” ~ Virgil

I was going to be writing to you today about a rather unusual and phenomenal love story about a man who proposed to his dream girl by very unusual means, but I found this other story in the midst of my research to be better reaching and a lot more compelling. We will return to Rubix Cube Boy at a later date.

This is the brief and heart wrenching love story about Chadil Deffy and Ann Kamsook. A young couple in love from Thailand.

The couple had been together for ten years and from time to time had discussed the topic of marriage, but boyfriend Chadil Deffy denied any idea of the wedding as he had explained that he was focused on his career and had no time for marriage. wedding1

Well, sadly girlfriend Ann Kamsook died in an auto accident. Chadil Deffy was left full of grief and pain.

So in a desperate way to atone for his misgivings and mistake not to marry his love earlier, he did something so unusual that at the time in 2012, it became an international story gone viral.

On the day of Ann’s funeral, Chadil married Ann. wedding2

Chadil stated that because of their busy schedules and his studies, that they had postponed their intention of marriage, but had not set a wedding date.

Ann would die on the third of January.

His decision to do so was met by his grief stricken regret for not marrying her while she was alive. He hoped that by marrying her on the day of her funeral, that all would be forgiven by her.

What do you think about this story?

“I love you more than any word can say … I love you more than every action I take … I’ll be right here loving you till the end.”~ Author Unknown

There’s really not too much that I can say about this article that I just found when I signed on to Facebook.

As a matter of fact, I think that I am not going to say much at all and just allow the story speak for itself.

And the simple reason for that, is that I’m in tears after reading it myself. This was INCREDIBLE!!! This man has my respect. And I give him the SUPER DAD AWARD of all times.

Also, if I am crying… some of you ladies, well you know that you will be too. Keep your tissues nearby.

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”~  Anaïs Nin

Even though I am not well, I am going to write this story to you because I feel that you need to know about it.

Today is Food Pantry day and as I waited patiently for my turn to go in and then immediately get home, I overheard this woman who (according to herself) is in her 80’s visiting with a neighbor.

She works with this neighbor as sort of a payee. Helping to sort out bills, rent, and the like.

She wasn’t around for very long and then as I was sitting in the hallway, she makes a mention right in front of me that she’s about to get married in the next few days. So the next time we see her, she will be a wife.

It was also mentioned by her that she didn’t really “see it coming” and even after being content of being a widow for the past 34 years, she’s going to take the vows again in her life.  it-is-never-too-late

To be in her 80’s and doing this, really does renew my own faith in what love can do. Love can triumph. Love will persevere.

It a nation where it seems as if love doesn’t seem to be at the front of every day lives, this story slips in and changes everything that I had ever thought I knew about love.

 

 

 

 

This blog post is for my friends as they are getting married this evening.

Michael Millsap, bassist of the band, SIX MINUTE CENTURY, is getting married to Lori. Both of whom I am so abundantly proud to be able to call my friends.

Unfortunately, I am unable to attend due to uncontrollable circumstances. And most likely that by the time I finish writing this blog post, Lori will be cruising up the aisle.

I’ve known Lori just a little bit longer than I have known Michael. But all in all, I’d have to say that when I met them both in person back in April, it was like a dream come true for me. They’ve also had me tag along with them as I was able to see my first SIX MINUTE CENTURY show. They both made me feel comfortable and cared for. And that was something that was new to me at the time. Without the generosity and friendship from the both of them, I’m not sure where I would be today. Definitely, I would not be such a hardcore fan of SIX MINUTE CENTURY as Lori was the one who introduced me to their music.

Later this evening, they will have a reception and SIX MINUTE CENTURY will perform. It kills me not to be able to go, but moreso, not being able to share this moment with them because they’ve both meant so much to me in my journey with the band. Having band mentors, has always worked out in my favor.

But, it won’t be the last time the band plays. I know that there will be other times where I can go see them. And of course, I can go and visit with my friends any time I want. In fact, I think it would be safe to say that the entire circle down there wishes that I would move there to be closer so I wouldn’t have to miss anything.

All I can say is: I’m working on it.

Michael: You are super moist! I owe a lot to you for your kindness. You have been a great teacher in Frothtonomy, and an excellent source for musical inspiration. I appreciate all that you have done for me in the past year or so. As I said to you earlier, mucho love.

Lori: The one who reigns in the metal world. I owe so much more to you. Your friendship is priceless. I am so grateful to have been put on a path that crossed yours in this life. I love you mucho too. 

Both of you: Congratulations. I will return to the area soon. Blessings upon you as you enter marriage.

This is blog is my wedding gift to you. Your own corner of the Internet composed specifically for you and this happy event. And it has been known that this blog reaches people WORLDWIDE.
