I ran a call this morning. A 2 car MVC with multiple injuries.
I can't give details. I wouldn't do that, anyway. I can say it was the hardest call I have ever been on, and I have been on suicides, fatal motorcycle accidents, overdoses and abused children. This, by far, for a variety of reasons, was the hardest one ever.

I came home and called Robbie. Told him how much I love him. How I promise to always kiss him goodbye(his alarm didn't go off this morning, and he ran out without kissing me). And to never take him or our life together for granted. Apologized for sometimes doing that.
Told him, again, how very much I love him.
And to please come home safe tonight.

I finished the vows. I wanted to change them a little, but until today, wasn't sure exactly how I wanted them.

What do you think?

I, Sara, still choose you, Robert, as my best friend, my love, my partner in all things. I am delighted today, in the presence of these witnesses, to again promise you my faithfulness, my devotion, and my care. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when love is easy and when love is hard; when I need you, but you have to leave because someone else needs your help even more. I promise to always kiss you goodbye, and never let a day end without telling you how much I love you, knowing that tomorrow is promised to no one. I pledge you all these things, my friendship, my support, and my love, until death alone parts us.
