It is a happy day.? October 3,2009 because my oldest son is marrying a girl whom he loves very much.? My children are all happy about this wedding.? My ex-husband and I are completely comfortable with our new daughter in law.? The melded children are friends and enjoy each other.? That in itself is a miracle and a blessing.? When people take the step of marriage today, it seems to be even more momentous than in the past.? So many people do not choose to marry, but merely live together without vows.?? Therefore a couple who decide to consolidate their lives formally and under God, are brave and true. It is really a triumph as well as a commitment.? I am delighted that my son and his intended are tying the knot this afternoon.? The sun is out and the weather is warm, no rain in sight.? We wish them a long and enjoyable life, full of contentment interspersed with moments of passion and strong purpose to add meaning and joy.
