They are so young. And today, at just turned twenty years old, they were wed. Friends of my children. (My boys on either side of the bridal couple.) The same age as my eldest son. The bride and my son went through school together. They had their first school dance together and graduated together. They really were good school friends. And today, he was at her wedding.
They are a cute couple...but, just babies. They have been dating for a long time and have made it official. I look at them acting all grown up. And wonder, are they too young? Will it work ? Do they even really know what love is ? ? ? ?
I was just turned twenty and Keith was twenty two. We had dated for years and couldn't wait to tie the knot. I realize that, love grows with time. At that age, it was just a seedling, over the years, with nurturing and care, it thriving and has put down very deep roots. As we watched them receive congratulations from their young friends, We talked about how when we had married, we weren't at all nervous or unsure about our future together. The only thing Keith was nervous about, was making his speech! But our future as a couple was something neither of us had cold feet about.
So now that my children's friends are starting to marry, does that mean we are getting OLD????
My wish for this young couple is that they find their love grows deeper through the years.
