More Than Just a Piece of Paper

Funny story at my expense...

They always say that a marriage certificate is more than just a piece of paper. Before I was married, I thought "yea yea, true...but...our love is stronger than a piece of paper. What do we need a piece of paper for?"

I did not realize how much this piece of paper would mean to me...

until I lost it.

I lost my copy. I felt so terrible. I felt that I was a bad person. Does this look like I don't value our marriage? How do you LOSE your marriage certificate?

I tore through the house looking everywhere for it. I was very upset. D couldn't understand why it was such a big deal. He tried calming me by saying that he had a copy and not to worry.

Yea, but I LOST it.

Days went by. It was still consuming my mind. Every now and then I would go sifting through my desk drawers. I cleaned out my desk at work. Where could it be?

Finally, after a week or two went by and I had come to the conclusion that my beloved marriage certificate had accidentally been thrown out recycled that I finally found it. At the bottom of my desk drawer underneath all of our insurance papers.

I was so relieved. I squealed like a kid. I was so happy.

Our marriage certificate is WAY more than just a piece of paper to me. It means the world.

I am relieved for you! Although I'm sure you can always get a copy...and a lot of people misplace those things. I think I would have freaked out too though!
