Did I pique your interest?
We just got back from our trip. Well, not just, but this is the first chance to do some catching up posting after much catching up with everything else. You know, work, laundry, food shopping, more laundry.
And I downloaded the photos I took and sent the most special ones to the mother of the groom.
Oh yeah, we went to a wedding. And we had a wonderful time, of course, because we have learned to always enjoy, even when things are tense and complicated.
And the experience led me to remember that I wanted to list some things I think are important to remember, when you’re having a simchah such as a wedding.
Here they are, in no particular order:
- It’s all about the bride and groom, not you. Do everything you can to make them happy.
- Don’t do anything that would make them unhappy.
- You’re joining families, whether you like it or not. So do everything to make that go smoothly.
- Look to include the others. Even if they don’t know how to or don’t want to. Make them do it, despite their best efforts.
- Fake it ’til you make it. Smile like you mean it.
- Dance in one circle. Don’t break into little mean girl groups.
- Get pictures of the little ones first. They poop out too quickly. (Oh have I learned that the hard way!)
- Smile some more.
- And laugh.
- Grab hands of anyone and dance.
Oh, the title, in case you haven’t figured out, is connected to #3. And 6. And 1.
And 9 is the most important one of all.
