A very lovely winter wedding it was, indeed.
If you feel in the mood...you might enjoy listening to the song above whilst you read this post.
It may even help you to screen out the busy stuff & shrug off the-weight-of-the-world, just for a moment.
As we all waited & waited some more, chatting amongst ourselves in anticipation..
the song began (yes this very song) & one wee honey girl;
fresh, precious & without a care in the world,
tottered around the corner...of the Old Church foyer,
head down ...just like this, lost in her own musings & carrying a tiny basket filled to the brim with old paper hearts.
Her mummy had to help her scatter the hearts along the aisle as she went..
It has been pampered & restored...
Just like nearly every wedding that ever was..
because of love...
bright, shiny, still new & full of hope & promise & forevers.
What a lovely invitation...
There was an option to come "with bells on".
An aunty or two did just that!
Vines & fertile plains surrounding,
on a short but glistening winters day.
It was a real blessing to be there with my gathering friend Ruth to see her middle daughter married, everyone so proud & happy.
Only time will tell.
We were all asked to bring a recipe to the kitchen tea & a piece of wisdom...
for marriage, of course.
Tell the truth..all the time.
Be honest about it all, don't just make it right!
Be gentle, be strong but always tell the truth...
about yourself, about your marriage,
about your families...
Thank you so much for visiting me.
I have a good deal to catch up on so I will try & move things along a little quicker in the next week or too.
I hope that you come across sweet scented flowers this week.
Sniff them or pick them just for you.
I have just picked the first sprigs of daphne.. oh heavenly scent.
Much love & hugs to you all.♥♥♥♥♥
