I am well into the long wedding weekend and just got back from the rehearsal dinner. My sister, Dianna, as always, has been a marvel of organizational ability. I have a printed schedule for the whole weekend, a shuttle bus that conveys the groom's side everywhere, my goodie bag upon my arrival chock a block with delectables. My Dad was right when he said Dianna would have been the world's greatest cruise ship director.
We are here to make another shared past that now we will all carry into the future with these new members of the family. What that future holds no one knows but one thing is certain, the past will continue to inform it.
