Ten years ago today, a father walked his daughter down the aisle in his backyard.
The cutest little flower girl led the way with rose petals.
With her sister by her side,
the girl locked hands with the boy,
and they sealed many promises with a kiss.
That day, the boy welcomed not just one, but two girls into his life.
This made the girl love the boy even more.
On a hot August day, two young kids walked away, ready to take on the world.
Ten years passed.
Better happened. Worse happened.
They were richer. They were poorer.
There was sickness. There was health.
But the boy and girl never gave up.
Ten years later, two young kids still walk hand in hand, taking on the world.
