Well now both my sons are married. My younger one got married on Saturday. She's a teacher, and she's French Canadian. She has been to Paris, well they both were but not at the same time. She comes from a large family and I always wanted to have a large family but could only adopt two boys. They had a small wedding at a Catholic Church in Winnipeg and we had a good reception and dinner at one of the local Forts. They had to back to work on Monday, so they will have a belated honeymoon. So now Gillian is pregnant and expecting the middle of October, I have a new daughter-in-law and my husband now wants to go to Church. Things are starting to look up.

I hope things keep looking up. I know my husband probably does not have long to live, about three years, but at least he was able to see our two sons get married and he might live long enough to see the birth of his second grandchild and at least, he has expressed a desire to go to church and that is what makes me happy.

It was so wonderful to see them get married. The only disappointment was that I could not stay for the dance. My husband is in a wheelchair and the Handitransit's does not pick up any rides after ten pm. and I suppose the dance would have gone on to two pm. At least, that is how long it was at my first son's wedding. The food was so good and everything went well. But I sure wish we could have stayed for the dance.

How exciting that you have been blessed with two sons and now you have two daughters and soon grandchildren. What an awesome wonderful thing that your husband wants to attend church also. Just today my husband was talking about how he has been praying lately, now that is prosperity. There is nothing that we cannot do as we pray for one another and walk with God. God bless you as I know you already are.

I have been praying for my husband all my married life, that is over thirty years, for him to come to God. But he was still bitter at being forced to go to church and how the church he used to belong to was unforgiven that he gave up on churches. Now he has decided to come to church. I wish he had decided when he was healthier.

Please don't hold regrets. He is back and now I pray that he will not be hurt again as so many are who attend churches. I pray that he will know God on a personal level that transcends all of the human hurts he has endured. My grandfather did not attend church his whole life but he always read his Bible and prayed. He always had an open hand to those in need and a kind heart. I know that he is now with the Lord because the Lord was always with him when he walked this earth. Let the joy of the Lord and His love for you and your family be your strength.

A friend of mine is getting things ready to build a ramp so he can wheel in. It has to be able to take the weight of 400 lb which is my husband plus the power wheelchair. Right now an ordinary portable wheelchair can get through, but until then there is the pancake breakfast that is coming up on Monday. I just have to spray my husband with mosquito repellent before then. They just love him.

That is great. I do hope they get it built soon for him. I have also heard that people low in vitamins B will attract mosquito's to them faster then anything.

I'm sure it was a lovely day. I hope they have a happy life together. Large families can be fun, or frustrating. We have 5 kids, and let's just say, there is always a lot of noise, either from them laughing or fighting!LOL

My husband was born into a large family. I always wanted to have an older brother, but I was born not long after my parents married (the war was on then) and so I guess it would have been physically impossible unless I knew Doctor Who and he could have arranged something.

But wait until you are married and have children and you will be glad as I am when they are married and starting families of their own. Weddings are so wonderful and so are grandchildren. You have a lot to look forward to!

There was only my parents, my brother and I and when I got married, I could not have any children so we adopted twins. We wanted to adopt more but for some reason because of our ages, or my past, we could not, and my brother was a recluse so he never married. I felt it all depended on me and since I could not have a large family I disappointed everyone, but now I am getting a large family through marriage and that makes me very happy.

hello suspenseful, You must be so very happy and contented of what is happening to your family now. For soon you will become a grandmother. Congratulations. Now a days having a big wedding celebration is no longer necessary. What's important is that they can be one and with the blessing of the Priest. Starting a family nowadays is different for it's not that easy. Instead of using the money for the wedding celebration you can already use that in buying more important things that a couple need to start with. Indeed having a grand and beautiful wedding is everybody's dream but we need to be practical now. You have a good life ahead of you.

Actually I had a small wedding, just went to the marriage commissioner because my church at the time did not believe preachers should marry, but only the civil authorities and it stank. It was not that they wanted to forgo the big wedding, it was that they wanted the traditional Roman Catholic wedding, only instead of having the service in Latin that no one understood, they had it in English and they had a very big reception. So they had a small wedding and a big reception. Lots of relatives and hired a band and everything.

I sure will. I always wanted a large family and never got it. And I felt alone when our sons left. I was suffering from empty nest syndrome very badly. Why I wanted to go out to the Mall just to be with the families. So now my son has married into a big family and it is wonderful.

I hope so too. If things go as planned, then it will work out. Right now it is quite busy because of my husband being disabled. He is due for an MRI the end of October and if they find he has,what I think he has, then he will be able to get the specialized help he needs and I will get a lot more home care, not that it matters, but right now no one knows what is wrong with him although we suspect it is Als. Also I am looking forward to the birth of my new grandchild. I think it is going to be a girl. My daughter-in-law is carrying high up.

I hope so too. They are making a ramp at the church so he can come in his motorized wheelchair. Right now they have to transfer him by using a regular wheelchair, . We do have a handicapped entrance, but not a ramp and there are a couple of steps to go up. So we hope in a couple of weeks he will be able to attend church.

That's wonderful!! I'm so happy for you! He will get a lot of comfort and encouragement from going to church and maybe his health will even improve as God fills his heart. Congratulations on the coming grandchild! Wow, you are getting a lot of happiness in your life right now and you certainly deserve it.

I do not think his health will improve. He is getting worse, but at least he will have the comfort at the end that he did not have before. And he will know he is not alone. I am waiting for the grandchild. It will nice to have another one and hope I get to see him or her. I am hoping for a boy, but I think by the way my daughter-in-law carries, that it will be a girl.

Good for you suspenseful! In these times where we hear so many stories of struggles and hard times, it is refreshing to hear that someone's life is taking a positive turn....or at least they are seeing the positive in their lives. You will love being a grandma...it is the best experience ever. Best of luck to you and your family!

I wish I could get and see them more often, but my son;s house is not handicapped friendly and my husband is in a power wheelchair. So if we go anywhere, we have to go there by handitransit and since my husband's hands do not work, I have to feed him. It was easy to get by at the reception when we all were having a good time and they knew about his condition, but a restaurant with strangers. Anyway the children there were fascinated by his motorized wheelchair and it must have been exciting to him have a mini car to drive around all the time.

It will be another one in October. My husband thinks that Nadine, that is Cory, my younger son's new bride, is pregnant, but she is rather large anyway, sort of buxom, and I do not think so. So maybe in nine months there will be another grandchild.

We were sure excited. I do wish we could visit more, but my husband relies on Handi Transit, and so they cannot pick us up in their car. So we have to wait until they come to visit us. (Hope my cupboard is stocked up then, because then it will be a handful.
