"A Day to Look Forward to…." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Monday)

A Day to Look Forward to….

Now that my children and my friends children are reaching the age of marriage I am returning to the events that I enjoyed when I was their age…a Wedding Shower. 
It seems like only yesterday that I was enjoying the festivities prior to my own wedding; all those useful gifts that a new bride needs to set up housekeeping.   
There are a few differences today though in shower giving.  In my invitation were cards from stores with website address on them to browse through on the computer to choose a gift for the bride. 
 Everything can be ordered on line now with a quick click of the mouse, no more schlepping from store to store to look for the items on the couples wish list to buy. 
Years ago we used to play games at the shower to warm up the crowd; I wonder if those traditions are still going  on today. 
Wedding, showers and engagement parties are such joyous festivities to attend once again; in a way it makes me feel young again.  It also makes me think….after being married for so many years, I think we should devise a repeat shower every so many years to replenish those worn out things from many years ago.

You've heard of vows being renewed…how about a shower to go along with them??

Great concept, why not renew showers along with wedding vows, as long as they don't start renewing circumcism and the bris ceremony! ;D) (oy vey)
