The Susan Boyle of Hawaii

I walked into our administrative assistant's office yesterday to find her completely stunned watching this video ( I watched a few seconds with her, and it gave me goose bumps. Saw that another blog I follow had posted about the video today, and finally sat down to watch it in its entirety. If you haven't seen Susan Boyle yet, you need to watch this. Not only does it serve as a great reminder not to judge others, but it gave me the shivers thinking about my upcoming wedding.
I wasn't always the most self-confident girl growing up. Sure, I was involved in many varied activities that occupied my time, but I can't say I was completely pleased and in love with who I was. I was the Susan Boyle we all judged before she began to sing. Meeting Greg has been one of the best things in my life. He loves me for who I am, not how I look. He knows me, understands my true being, and brings out the best in me. He gives me the opportunity to sing before judging me. And that's true not only for me, but for others as well. This guy will not form an opinion of others before meeting and talking with them. He's easy going, and has shown me how to be this way as well. He's brought out my gifts, helped me to polish them, and shared his, too. How can I ask for anything better?
I can't believe that in three months he'll be my husband. Mine. How did I get so lucky?
(And I used to think I was going to spent the rest of my life in a covenant...)
