Last week our 19-year-old grandson came to visit so he could participate in his best friend’s wedding. Weddings are exciting: handsome groomsmen lined up in their tuxedos, the groom nervously looking for his bride, bridesmaids in matching dresses, the flower girl and ring bearer announcing the bride’s entrance and then the bride, adorned for her husband. All of this followed by a reception: good food, joyful singing and dancing.

The only public event we attended during the height of COVID in 2020 was the wedding for our young neighbors across the street. We watched them meet, date, fall in love and exchange their vows in a local church. That was two years ago. Now they come to visit bringing scones and their 4-month-old baby, Charlie.
