Family Share picked up and reprinted a post from my website. It’s about kid health, boogers and dirt, and overprotective parents.
My eldest daughter is getting married (crash the cymbals, shout from the rooftops)! My first engaged child and first wedding. I grew up with my husband in the same small town, so our courtship and marriage were a very easy and natural extension of my life and our relationship. Since 4 of my 5 kids are in a marriageable stage of life, I’m realizing it’s not so easy for everyone, and has become a harder proposition for young adults these days. Now that my daughter has found a spectacular man and they have become engaged, the other obstacle to overcome is the wedding celebration, and all the drama and stress that leads up to that climatic day.
So I wrote this article for my daughter, and anyone who will be planning a wedding soon. By today’s standards, my wedding reception was plain and simple, but look! We’re happily married for almost 30 years. So here’s some advice to make that day a start of a lasting, loving, committed life together.
Do you feel like you had to kiss a frog to find your prince?
