Love recognizes no barriers.
It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls
to arrive at it destination full of hope.
Please view the slideshow of Christina and Charlie's amazing wedding photos here:
When I was eight years old, and very ill with a high fever, I dreamed that an Angel came to my bedside and told me that I needed to stay on Earth because I had so many wonderful things to look forward to in this life. It was only later that I realized that this Angel in my dream was the spirit of my beautiful daughter, Christina, asking me to be her mother.
A year’s worth of planning, ordering, shopping and arranging is about to culminate tomorrow. Family is arriving from other states and the excitement is building, leaving us all feeling joyful, but exhausted.
The rehearsal is tonight, and the folks in question will come together for the first time in many years. I suspect that most of them will be on good behavior while at the venue practicing tomorrow’s events, but the real test will be the dinner afterwards when the liquor begins to flow and boundaries are tested.
I have been asked repeatedly if I am drinking more these days to manage stress levels and calm my nerves, and I have to say that it’s never been my way to douse my emotions with alcohol. I would much rather put on some beloved movie I’ve seen a million times and curl up on the couch with a gigantic bowl of ice cream. If Karl Marx were living today, he might agree that religion is not the opiate of the people…..but fatty, sugary junk food IS.
Christina’s bridesmaids took her to San Francisco for her bachelorette party where she was treated to a lap dance by a large, black transvestite in a skimpy maid’s costume. Christina looked adorable in her bachelorette head gear: a veil with a multitude of purple plastic penises dangling from it. I am positive that her children will get great enjoyment from seeing these photographs one day…..
