Our little family is growing. Just this past year we were blessed with Megan marrying Joshua. She is a sweet lady.
Now Stephen (Josh’s twin) is FINALLY bringing the sweet Jennifer into the clan. We have known Jenn longer than Megan and have known that the marriage was going to happen because they are so much in love. Well, it will happen on Valentine’s day and how very appropriate for the love birds.
Jenn e-mailed to tell us that it will be a small private ceremony, she understands we are in Florida, but that we are certainly welcome and they would love to have us present. We know that!
But you know what? The most important folks at any wedding are the Bride and Groom, the rest are decorations. It has been 57 years but I remember that evening very well, some of my best friends were there, but the most important person there was SHERRY!
So this is not about Sherry and I, Josh and Megan or anyone else, except JENNIFER AND STEPHEN and that they want. I know Son Jack is proud, he introduced Jennifer (whom he met at Books a Million I believe) to his son Stephen while Stephen was attending Mars Hill College. Jack says he remembers Jenn asking when she could meet Steve, and he telling her, If I introduce you guys you will fall in love and it might be my fault (or something like that).
(Soon I think Grandpa, soon! and now a few months later it is now soon, just a joke, I never bug anyone to get married)
They met, they did fall for each other and are deeply in love. I would like to attend the wedding, well really, I am not a wedding type guy, but I do like to see happy love birds. We will see them when we get home, and take them out to dinner to celebrate.
We are so proud of them. I have mentioned it before, Jennifer is a nurse. She is a real nurse, she exudes compassion and caring. it is the perfect profession for her.
Above all, our desire is for them to remain in love, remembering always why they wanted to get married and be true to each other forever.
Happy Dad, Jack Jr. with his NC family
Our best to the family’s newest couple, and especially to the newest member of our little clan, the lovely Jennifer.
Thanks for letting me brag instead of gripe.
Marriages last when the two remember WHY they married in the first place.
When Jennifer and Stephen met, She was driving
Stephen was driving a ‘90 or ‘91 Buick Roadmaster that his Aunt Shirl had given him.
