    Wow you have accomplished a lot. I need inspiration to get in gear myself. A friend of mine shared the words she used during her sand ceremony and I will be borrowing them for my own. Here it is in case you (or anyone) wants to borrow as well. There is a song that speaks of “a long and winding road” and before you met, your lives were on such a road... each going in different directions and seemingly leading to different destinations. But somewhere along the way you took a fork in the road to a destination called “love” and today you find yourselves standing together at the entrance of a new path that will join your once separate journeys into one. Before each of you there is a container of sand. Each container represents the separate journeys you once were on. They also represent your own sets of friends and families that once were apart. I will ask that in a moment you both blend your individual container of sand together... representing the coming together of your friends and family, through your marriage, into one. And as the sand is blended into one container, your once solitary journeys will now be one of companionship, as you walk a single path together into your future. I now ask that you blend your containers of sand together. The couple  picks up their individual containers of sand and blend them together. As the sand has blended together, your lives are now joined. Your friends and family are as one as well, for now you will share those who are in your lives and will walk hand-in-hand along the path of your marriage - united and strong as husband and wife.

    Congratulations on your checks! I have fallen off on the checks for a while - looking at all you have accomplished makes me want to get back on the ball. . . eventually. LOL!
