Black and White Wedding Tag - TRUST In Bloom

This wedding tag is to underscore to a future young couple
that the foundation of their relationship must be maintained with
complete and total trust.
When you lose trust, you lose respect, security, and certainly fulfillment.
You lose so much.  Opening yourself to love also means
you open yourself to be hurt more deeply by that someone.
So let's all remember to handle relationships carefully,
to respect and maintain trust, and when there is a breach,
to strive even harder to restore that precious element.
It may take time.  It may take a lot of time.
But it is worth being careful and conscientious about.
Our relationships will be so much richer if we will not take one another for
granted, but will consistently choose to root our lives in respect and trust.

I've colored in the In Bloom blossoms with an opaque white Sakura pen.
The white mesh is recycled bits of drywall mesh leftover from our laundry room
remodel a number of months ago.

I made the butterflies not identical but each others' opposites.
This is also a subtle reference to the differences between our temperaments and
mental or emotional tendencies as men and women,.
While it's sometimes frustrating, this is not a bad thing but a way to achieve
balance and harmony together.
We have that potential, if we choose to listen to each other
and keep trying daily.

OK, sometimes by the minute.
But the point is we keep trying!
