Wedding Bells, a post by Sharon

Rhonda and Hanno, as well as her sister Tricia, are busy preparing for Shane and Sarndra's wedding, so there will be no new post from Rhonda for the next few days. I am sure all of you want to send best wishes for a long and wonderful life together to Shane and Sarndra. Leave a comment below for them to read together after the festivities are over (a very long distance e-wedding card, so to speak)! Hugs to all, Sharon

  4. I was confused there for a minuted when I saw the date of your post but then I remembered the time difference! At my age I really should have figured that one out by now!

    Rhonda Jean: hope you have a fantastic day on Saturday and that everything goes according to plan (it certainly sounds like it was heading that way). Best wishes to Shane and Sarndra for a happy, healthy and peaceful life together. You are giving them a great start I think.

  84. Reading the comments made me remember something my mother-in-law told me. She and her husband had that rule about never letting the sun go down on your anger, but they added to it that it was the responsibility of the person who thought they were in the right to initiate peacemaking. She said she knew there would always be at least one person who thought they were in the right!
