The lovely thing about a wedding is that you can see how two parts can make a whole.
I was gifted with the opportunity to see a friend joined to her other half ... I don't know him.
I met his mother in the bathroom at the wedding, and, frankly, I was hooked. When three of four of the toasters were describing the bride and groom, I felt like my first impression of the groom's mother and her influence on her son were correct.
I predict a long, fruitful partnership, and that is truly heartening.
