Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry. -Tom Mullen
Last night we went to a celebration dinner for my baby brother (He’s 28, can I still call him that?) and his lovely bride to be. They are getting married this Saturday.
As we drove away from the party my husband said, “I think they make a really good couple. In some ways they are opposites, but they compliment each other’s strengths and weaknesses. I think they’re a great match.”
I agree with him. Josh and Jen are like two pieces of a puzzle that fit together beautifully… making a whole.
Jen is fiercely loving, extremely generous, thoughtful and kind. She knows what she wants in life and has the talent to get it. She is also a lively story teller and is easy for all of us to love.
Josh has been the life of our family since the day he was born. He is easy going and fun. He is totally unjudgmental, which means he has the largest (and oddest) collection of good friends of anyone I know. He is quick to anger, but even quicker to forgiveness. Everyone loves Josh to pieces (including me.)
Josh and Jen have all the makings of a great marriage. So my one bit of advice to them is this: A good marriage is a matter of choice. You must choose to let the little things go and focus on what’s good in your spouse. You have to choose to support each other when times are hard. You must always choose to love…
Josh and Jen, I love you both. I can hardly wait for Saturday. All my love, Calli
