W is for Weddings
A I worked on an art challenge for Sunday Postcard Art last week whose theme was “June Brides”, I thought about the two women and two weddings depicted in the card.
I used photos of my mother and myself, on the day of our weddings – 52 years apart.
My mother’s wedding gown has a glorious long train and a veil that was borrowed.
My mother was only 21, embarking on a marriage to a widower with a young son. It would be a challenge at times. There would be four other children – two boys and two girls.
At age 50, I was marrying for the second time and I so wanted to look and feel like a princess.
We were blending two families – each of us with three children. We became a real “Brady” bunch.
There will be many weddings in the months ahead. My own daughter will marry in August and she has asked me to walk her down the aisle – what an honour.
May all these brides experience the “love, laughter and happily ever after” that I have.
