Our love is here to stay


On Saturday at 5pm, my Mom, Linda and her fiancé, Leonard, are getting married. I will walk her down the aisle under the protection of a giant oak tree while my Sister and her companion, David, will sing "Our Love is Here to Stay." 

My joy for them knows no bounds, for they are a true couple. They have never fought and have been known to dance in the living room first thing in the morning. When I think of them, the image that comes to mind immediately is that they are laughing. The delight that they have- as well as the sheer gratitude - in having found each other is infectious. As they have already surmounted many challenges together, all that know them already think of them as married. And they do as well.

But now they are making it official. With the real "I do" too.

Here is to Love. As beautiful as the best bouquet but far longer lasting...


Happiness is here...in full bloom.



Thank you for being here everyone...I am so appreciative of you all and for your kindness...may Love fill your weekend wherever you are,
Heather

PS. Any thoughts or prayers for good weather and smooth sailing would be greatly appreciated!

To find a true soulmate with whom to share life's roller-coaster is an absolute blessing. (Unfortunately for many, such a person is elusive.) Many they continue to have many years building wonderful memories together. XXX
