We've decided to do a recommitment ceremony for our 25th next year. Here's what I have so far. Can you let me know what you think?

I stand here today to reaffirm my marriage vows. So many years ago, when we were young, we stood in a church and said words that were written for us. Words I'm pretty sure we didn't understand the true meaning of at the time.

Well, today I am not that young anymore and I'm not just taking a vow; I am giving you a vow and a promise in words that are my own.

My love for you has grown so much. It's a deeper love, a grown-up love. There have been times when I believed the problems before us were too big to overcome and too painful to forgive. I have learned that I love you more and deeper than I could ever have imagined and that love is strong enough to overcome and forgive everything in our past.

I admit I've held back, but today I give in to that love and recommit myself to you. I love you more today because of all that we have come through and because of the person you've become.

I promise, from this day forward, to love and trust you more and more as time passes.

I promise to be there for you when you are sick, hurt, need comfort or when you just want to share your day.

I promise to make you feel needed and appreciated for all that you bring to our life together.

So, I stand today in front of our family, our friends and you, my husband, to make these vows to you and I promise to give you all of the best of me and probably some of the not so best of me, for as long as we both live.

Well...Tears are now running down my face as I am eating dinner alone in a busy restaurant.
Thank you
It sounds beautiful.

Thanks. It's a work in progress. I'm sure in the year that I have I'll be revising.

I hope I can get through it without bawling like a baby.
