Sorry I disappeared from the blog for a bit. Last week was a long, long week with a sick cat, computer virus, and internet issues. But I’m back online and wanted to share this lovely video.
Quote from YouTube: “This video is for everybody. Who has ever loved. And has been loved in return. To those that think it never does or will get better. It does. It does get better, it becomes beautiful.”
Was watching an old episode of Brothers & Sisters the other day and thought I’d share one of my favorite quotes from the show. This one always makes me think of my honey. There’s nothing like knowing you can be exactly who you are and be loved for it.
Kevin: You know, it’s like all these crazy people in my family are in this insane freefall and completely incapable of being happy. And then I look at Saul, who… who’s missed his life entirely. And I realize how lucky I am because I get to come home to someone who is kind and caring, and who changes the lightbulbs… and… marry me.
Kevin: I mean it. I don’t want to wait. I want to make this official.
Scotty: Because I changed the lightbulbs?
Kevin: No, well, yeah, kind of. Because, Scotty, that’s who you are. I’m completely, completely in love with you. I even love the things about you that I hate. Because you make me feel like I don’t have to be anyone other than who I am. And to me, that feels like family, and that’s what I want us to be. I want us to be a family because that never ends. I’m doing this all wrong. [gets down on his knees] Scotty, I’m asking you. Will you please marry me?
“Edith “Edie” Windsor, who shared her life with her late spouse, Thea Spyer, for 44 years, files a lawsuit against the federal government for refusing to recognize their marriage. The lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of the “Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA), a federal statute that defines marriage for all federal purposes as a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife. Windsor and Spyer were married in Canada in 2007, and were considered married by their home state of New York.” (Source: YouTube)
Thanks to the wonderful PG Forte for sharing this video on Facebook.
“Perry v. Schwarzenegger plaintiffs Paul and Jeff discuss how they met, how they fell in love and why marriage matters to them. This case is about constitutional principles, but it’s also about real people and real stories. This video, and their story, is why we’re in this fight.” Source
