My friend Karen left a little treasure on my desk at work one day. This little fellow will indeed find a place to twinkle among my treasures as I walk down the aisle. Karen’s package was wrapped up with red yarn, and her card held this ancient Chinese saying that suits Alex & I perfectly:
An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.
(There must be a little red thread between Karen and I, as well – we went to university together 10 years ago and have since shared cubicle non-walls (think Les Nesman) in three different jobs, and now her little ‘something blue’ will forever be part of our lives – as will our memories of her acting as MC for our wedding dinner.)
