"I PLEDGE THEE MY TROTH"
So at this moment in our ceremony, he was repeating whatever version of vows that Dad was leading him in - I think he was pledging his love or something (lol). Just then, I recalled some more traditional vows and thought in my head, "But what about his troth?" ...and then I said it out loud, "But I want his troth." Bryan laughed and I think Dad said, "What?!" and I repeated, "I want his troth." Poor Dad just shook his head, and I think eventually joined everybody else in laughing. We did this the WHOLE ceremony. Laughed all the way through.
I wasn't even really sure what a troth was, but learned that it's a word that means TRUTH. And though in the context of marriage vows,TRUTH has a great deal to do with fidelity and faithfulness, if you look it up, it also means "sincerity in action, character, and utterance" or "the state of being the case". On my 7th wedding anniversary I am grateful that this photo and all the photos I post are "the state of being the case". I am grateful that there are no facades, no pretenses and no faking. That my time with this man is EXACTLY what it looks like - on social media, at the house, at church, in the grocery store - wherever. It is happy. It is TROTH. lol! Happy Anniversary Sugar! #luckygirl #repostfromyear5
