I wanted to write lovely words of congratulations in the guestbook on your weddingwebsite,
i kept for looking for quotes to put in, some from my favourite authors or some from the www… and i STILL havent found what i am looking for…
and OH, my goodness the wedding is SO CLOSE!! ( Which i just know is going to be the dream wedding … Please extend my greetings and congratulations to the groom and his family)
So I am settling for what i want to say in my own words…and i dont think your guestbook can accomodate my blah blah ( and i can really go on …:-)
I saw you first on the day of my engagement, and i remember marvelling at what a wise head you had (even on such terribly young schoolgirl shoulders)… ahem!
so why should I even give you any advice, when you are poised to take on marriage and life as a mrs…? \
Exactly! I won’t.
I think these three things are the valuable truths i’ve learned being married to your maama and these are cardinal virtues i’d like to share with you as keywords in a life and marriage:
viz 1. eat (and your side of the family doesnt need MY rhetoric on the eat dictum…from your grandma, mum and aunts–> i’ve learned to relish and savour food and what an enjoyable lesson this one has been:-)),
2. pray (because, as the Bible says “And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive”)
3. love (marriage opens the doors — not just that one special person to love and cherish– but to a new surprisingly vast familytree full of lovely people to open our hearts to. ( i remember one such bespectacled girl from sep 5, 2003;-)
Warmest wishes and a bridal hug to you,
