I’m very happy to say my son and his new bride are currently on their honeymoon. Things could not have been better and I’m grateful to God for His blessings and favor. See my first post here. These are three interesting and amazing things about the wedding:
There Was No Drama
The wedding was simple and had a sense of innocence. Bridezilla was conspicuously absent. Thank God. My son married a sweet, fun woman who is laid back but just like my son is no introvert. I still smile when I remember that as she was walking down the aisle, and as they stared lovingly in each other’s eyes, my son began to clap slowly. That brought cheers and laughter from the attendees.
It Was Standing Room Only
During the rehearsals, several chairs were removed from the back of the church because the wedding planned was small and intimate. However, when I arrived at the church, the only empty seats were the ones reserved for the mothers of the bride and groom. Family members from Canada, UK and Jamaica, as well as other parts of the US came to celebrate this joyous and blessed occasion with the happy couple. Which brings me to my third point.
Family comes in all different shapes and sizes. Mine is located worldwide and it’s always good to get together and catch up. I don’t think there’s a place big enough to hold all of us. I must say I’m very happy that even though most of my immediate family could not attend, it worked out the way it should. I’m proud of my son for keeping the bonds going, even when I’ve been too self absorbed to do it myself.
Finally, although I’m not yet ready to be a grandmother, I’m glad my family is expanding and evolving. I have to keep an open mind and a home for future get togethers.
