· Laughter and the Love of Friends ·
It's just that Saturday night we had a special evening, a feast hosted by long-time friends of our future in-laws. The memorable image of the enduring love among couples there we might someday recall as the presence in microcosm of the wedding itself.
Here's what we found ourselves writing to the feted couple:
What I think we really meant to say was better marked in Hilaire Belloc's famous "Dedicatory Ode":
We think all might be glad to learn today that the pair have just bought their first home. May friends and family fill it now with love and laughter.Permalink
Lovely, just lovely! Best wishes to you all!
Drink in every wonderful moment.
Hint: At my niece's wedding a few years back I was allowed to recite Shakespeare's "Let us not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments." And I got most of it in at the reception of my son's wedding.
