Meeting New Cousins

It was the end of the day; the game had been fun For winners and losers, we were all family now. Today's marriage of our favorite grandparents Set today's mood, a strong bond of communion and love Here are both sets of grandchildren, enjoying a free trip to Hawaii Celebrating the happiest new couple who wed in their eighties. We knew it would be great. We had told our parents this. Some had listened. Others had been dubious. Had they opened their hearts? We were trying to find a good place to play one last game of ball On the beach where people we love had wed this morning. We are all family now, one for all and all for them. The sundown is bringing us optimism and hope.

Thank you Ann- I notice in blended families, the children often seem to blend the fastest.

Nothing so wonderful as a happy occasion in Hawaii! Eighties, you say? So, where there's life there's hope.

Thank you Robert. The happiest bride I ever met was 75 when she got engaged. She had never been engaged before. He was 81, and they had a good ten years together
