It's never too late...


Last weekend I went to visit my family in Ohio, so I could attend the wedding of my 80 year old step-grandmother and her 74 year old groom. The bride was gorgeous, and she looked so happy! What a testimonial for love - at ANY age!!!!

The wedding was just the highlight of the weekend, though. It brought together all five of my stepfather's children (2 daughters, 1 son, 2 stepdaughters) for the first time ever. We had never been in the same place at the same time until now. We also got the chance to spend time with cousins (most of whom I haven't seen in over ten years!). It was a great time, with lots of reminiscing, lots of hugs, and plenty of old pictures, causing lots of laughter amongst us all (geez, what WAS I thinking getting that curly mullet haircut at age 10????). We've all exchanged emails and now have a birthday and anniversary list for the entire family (and Christmas just got a lot more complicated LOL!).

I think perhaps we all get along better BECAUSE we are adults than we might have if we all grew up together.

I guess I've just been thinking all week that it's never too late for anything - for love, for marriage, for becoming a complete family - even as adults. There's always hope...

It sounds like you had a wonderful time which is pleasing to me,life often offers those rare occassions when families can come together as a whole and enjoy what has been,what is,and what is yet to come.

Glad to hear the weekend went as well as it did.

Regarding there's always hope, I'm an eternal optimist. I just find life much more pleasant when you are looking for the sunshine than complaining about the rain.

You must spilt oil on this post, my comments keep sliding off.

It gives us all hope that you are never to old for happyness. I also can relate to these rare family gatherings that as we get older become more interesting. Glad you enjoyed yourself.

Thank You for Your Time and Attention
