Recently, I attended my old UQ friend/housemate, Matthew’s solemnisation and wedding dinner on 26th January 2008, with his lovely partner, Chen Mei.
It was a great honour and I was happy to be his wedding photographer when he asked me to help him during this special day. An account of me being the photojournalist at his wedding day can be read at my photojournalism blog.
We can see his pride and happiness with his new married life and he was a great mate that had believed, supported and helped me in many ways these few years. Reflecting, I would like to share a few wonderful key words/verses/phrases that form/constitute a great and lasting friendship for life:
Appreciation by Doc Childre and Sara Paddision, HeartMath Discovery Program:
“What you put out comes back. The more you sincerely appreciate life from the heart, the more the magnetic energy of appreciation attracts fulfilling life experiences to you, both personally and professionally. Learning how to appreciate more consistently offers many benefits and applications. Appreciation is an easy heart frequency to activate and it can help shift your perspectives quickly. Learning how to appreciate both pleasant and even seemingly unpleasant experiences is a key to increased fulfillment.”
Friendship by Kayla:
“A true friend sticks with you through thick and thin no matter what.”
Also something for the newly wedded couple,
Love by Sir Hugh Walpoe:
“The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident.”
Congrats to a new and exciting life ahead, my old mate Matthew and his lovely wife Chen Mei !
