Weddings have changed since I got married.
For example, several months ago I received this:
Booze, food &
Bad dance moves
Save the date!
Plus the date and place
|Don't I look young?|
Well, okay. Since this is my first grandchild to get married, I put it on my calendar with the hope of a follow-up call. Unh Uh. Look at that: it’s on a long holiday weekend.
They are posting on Facebook. I’m not on Facebook anymore. I have enough trouble posting to my writing personae page.
And texting. Hmm. I don’t have texting on my phone.
Understand this does keep me out of the family gossip loop, but preserves my sanity. Although I love my family dearly, I can’t learn one more skill or spend the time reading frivolous stuff. I know I’m supposed to jump on this wagon, but I barely have the time to write without the extra input.
I’m sure they have their name on some list at a nice store so they don’t get duplicate presents. What a nice thing I don’t plan to give them something they expect. Hehe.
Next came the casual mention from another grandchild about the bridal shower. Only it’s not a bridal shower. It’s a His and Her party. At least its here in this state. On another long holiday weekend.
Did I mention the wedding is a thousand miles away although the Bride’s family lives within a hundred miles?
I don’t want to get into the logistics. It is their wedding. Their special day is at a lovely place with extensive gardens. They are planning to have the ceremony timed so they say their vows at sunset. A beautiful idea and one that will make me cry as I listen.
They asked me to write a blessing for them. I guess I can read it without choking up. I hope.
I’m sure I’ll be posting more about this wedding on my blog.
Maybe a photo. One.
Please visit, follow or friend me. I love hearing from you.
