: Congratulations! Finally the Big Day is here... so why not make a speech on his big day... After all the up’s and down’s…the yes’s and no’s..the wait and watch…finally the moment has arrived. Wonder where did all these years fly by? Your son is a grown up man now. All ready to start his own life and his own family. There are so many wonderful memories of your son growing up, ...of his laughter and the joy he brought to you and your family. The way you chased the little boy all around the neighborhood until he grew so big to outrun you. The way he refused to leave the back yard and spent every waking minute playing. The way he liked to play loud death metal music in the middle of the night, the way he skipped school, the way he broke his arm and the way he drove his mother mad! And those stupid crushes he had on Jennifer Aniston and Brooke Shields. And of course the way he would ask you questions that you never knew the answers to. Why is the sky blue? Where do fish come from? Why does it rain? Why do we drive on this side of the road? And the list went on... Your speech can bring all these wonderful memories back to him...and make him smile.... ♥♥
Quote of the Day 'When young we have a vivid sense of basic values like trust and warm-heartedness, which we tend to neglect in today’s competitive world as we grow up, yet from birth we all have a need for affection. The emotions we experience today have not changed much over the last few thousand years, but the interest increasing numbers of people are showing in their inner world and how their emotions work is a sign of maturity.' Dalai Lama
For the Father of the Bride.. Everyone has seen the happy father of the bride escort his daughter down the aisle of the church and hand her to the groom. It's perhaps the most poignant symbol of the wedding-a father passing the responsibility of his grown child to her soon-to-be husband. However, this is just one of the duties that the father of the bride is responsible for to ensure that the wedding nuptials go as planned. From hosting pre-wedding events to picking up some of the bill, the father of the bride is a major part of the wedding party.
Our Thoughts for the Day Love makes a lot of things possible. Still, getting married is probably one of the most important decisions a woman can ever make in her life. It certainly takes courage to finally decide your man is the right one for you and to share the rest of your life with him. Whether you're having a fairytale princess wedding or a simple garden wedding, I wish you the greatest happiness and a blessed married life ever! And may you look your most beautiful and happiest on your wedding day!
Some advice for the mother of the groom: As soon as possible after your son and future daughter in law announce their engagement you should write a note to her parents, or give them a call to express your happiness at the news and invite them over for dinner or drinks. There will no doubt be some initial discussions at this meeting about who will be paying for what so parents should be prepared to start negotiations
Some very wise words from the Dalai Lama 'If we make consistent effort, based on proper education, we can change the world. We are selfish, that’s natural, but we need to be wisely selfish, not foolishly selfish. We have to concern ourselves more with others’ well-being, that’s the way to be wisely selfish. We have the ability to take the long-term benefit into account. I think it is possible to make real change in this century.'
And we should keep in mind that this is exactly how we should treat a marriage...be wise listen and learn..... ♥♥ and we have one very excited Executive Director going to Sydney to be part of the great Teachings of the Dalai Lama... !!!
Some words of wisdom when planning your wedding: You are completely entitled to have your own feelings and doubts and you have to embrace them no matter what they may be because if you try to suppress how you feel, it will only make it worse. At the same time, you have to keep things in perspective. Yes, you are going to get married, but that doesn't mean you'll be changed into a totally different person overnight. You'll still be the same person you've always been: quirky, funny, whatever. Experiences over time will add more layers to who you are and that includes, experiences you will have with your future husband.
