Checking In

The guests begin arriving today... here at The Strawberry Patch and at local hotels; the sheets are freshly pressed, the towels fluffed. I'm getting my hair fixed and my nails done, fingers and toes! The speeches and toasts have been written. The rehearsal is scheduled for twelve hours from now. The gifts are wrapped. The flowers are being arranged and the cakes are being baked today. He's really going to do it; my baby's getting married! It's not only guests checking in today, reality is too. Wasn't he a toddler only yesterday?

Life is Good!
