A Wedding Wish

What does a mother want on the day of her daughter’s wedding? I suppose losing about 50 kilo before the evening would be nice…. But, seriously…

I desire that they should be happy together… really happy…
I pray that they should be a radiantly happy couple fifty years from now….
I hope that they should have long and healthy lives together,
I wish for them children , as soon as they want them,
Children who are smart, cute, healthy, and pleasant,.
Children who will walk in the ways of their people….
I desire for them a marriage of purity, love, and fidelity,
And a life with enough income to not feel strapped….
(and of course we won’t complain if they get better then that!)
And I wish for them good relations with relatives, friends, and neighbors.

Is anything else really important?

So why in G-d’s name does the whole day get caught up with make-up, hairdressers,
Bridal dresses, the wig?
OK, she needs it. But if something is amiss, a bit wrong, the fish salty, the seasoning off…..
I’ll hope I remember, that this is the icing.

The marriage’s the cake!

Mazel Tov! The best piece of advice that I got on my wedding day was from my SIL: "Count on 5 things going wrong. You are not allowed to freak out until number 6 happens!" To this day, I can count the 5 things that happened. LOL

(PS: I found your blog through Renee's blog.)

Mazal tov! My friend told her daughter to look around and try to remember scenes, because it all goes so fast.

Mazal Tov, what a beautiful post. I know it will be hard to get some rest but try to anyway.
