One day when my son was about 4 years old we were walking down the road, with several dogs in tow, and he asked me how he would know who to marry. Excited to start this talk early, I told him he should marry a girl that was moral, honest and loved to laugh. I'm sure I went on and on and said way too much, which is usually my way.
He listened very carefully and then turned his sweet face to me and said,
"And she HAS to love dogs."
I agreed that would be a very important trait as well.
From that moment on I thought about the girl that he would marry. Would he find that dog loving moral honest laughing girl?
Yes he did....and she is beautiful.
On July 17th we celebrated the wedding of my boy and his girl. It was perfect. I have never seen my boy so happy. It was a weekend filled with fun, food, family and friends. Not only did my son marry the perfect girl he married into a wonderful family and now my only child has two little brothers and in laws that adore him.
And we have a sweet, moral, honest daughter.....who happens to love dogs.
She didn't bat an eye when I told her my son's dowry was 5 ducks and a goat.
