December 2: Shine: What was the best moment of 2013?
2013 was a lot of Moments.
There was the Moment I started the 2013 ING NYC Marathon with my little brother. There was the Moment I got the Phone Call. There was the Moment I took a taxi up the FDR to visit Katka and Matthew on the day that Everything Changed. There was the Moment that Paul walked into my office. There were the Moments with Friends and Family; the Parties; the Dinners; the Travel.
And then there was This:
It seems almost…staged…doesn’t it? It seems too good to be real; to be true; to be possible that someone could’ve spontaneously captured such a gorgeous moment.
This year, I had the privilege of officiating the wedding of two of my dearest friends. Their wedding day was a blur of sunshine and love, unlike anything I have experienced in recent memory.
Marriage is hard, and to willingly and joyfully choose it is a pretty awesome thing. For me to have been such an intimate part of this was a blessing and an honour. And to have spent this day surrounded by so many people who love this couple, and who are so familiar to me made it even more special.
It was a Moment.
