Forty-six years ago today, we were married. Back in 1969, the catholic church had many more restrictions than today. For instance we could not be married after noon, so we had a 10am wedding.
Only approve 'church' music was allowed. Well I begged to differ, we thought the song "The Impossible Dream" summed up our future lives. Of course it was not on the approved list. A few months before the wedding I met with the pastor, with the album and sheet music in hand. We sat down and discussed why this song was so important to us.
After some convincing he did allow it to be sung but only after the mass had concluded. Tears rolled down my cheeks as the St. Francis Men's Choir sang it with all the enthusiasm in the world.
And that's the way it is..........
