Winsome, it wasn’t, by anyone’s definition. It seemed that Mama had used all of the leftovers she could find at home from decorations for birthdays and celebrations long past. So many balloons and quite a color palette!
But, I won’t criticize her, because it is a labor of love, justified by her desire to make my wedding day the best that she could. That is mother’s manner, as nothing is ever done half-way. Mama believes in “Go Big or Stay at Home!”
And, Ray and I could not afford roses, so we are stuck with having City Hall festooned with hundreds of balloons, ribbons, and garlands of every color. I find solace in the fact that when Ray first saw it, as walked up to the door of City Hall from a car covered with blue balloons, he laughed, took Mama in his arms, and thanked her for a job well done. I knew then that I had a keeper, and all of my butterflies disappeared.

You are doing a great job. I am a cancer survivor, colon cancer. It can be tough, but we do get through it all. Hold on to your faith!
Thank you so much! I am so pleased for you as yours is way more intensive than mine. I’m feeling very positive and will be glad when my surgery is over so that I can get on with my life.
Cute story! 🙂
