Villa Madelyn ~ A Sign

After waiting in the VIP lounge my son and his bride took a private chartered plane to the tiny island of Wakatobi. It's a dot in the Indo-Pacific Ocean. We received some photos upon their arrival. The one in this photo shows the entrance to their honeymoon villa. It is called, Villa Madelyn, our new daughter-in-law's beautiful name. We all believe it's a sign of wonderful things to come.

They certainly sound as if they are having a honeymoon to remember. The villa looks lovely, and so do the photos you've put in the comments.

Thank you! We wanted this to be so special for them. They are leaving soon for their first dive 100 miles out. That makes me so nervous.

@DianneN Wow, don't those loungers look inviting! Try not to worry about the diving, just concentrate on thinking what a good time they are having

@jaboUK I texted my son and told him to be careful of sharks. He replied that sharks were the least of his concerns. I will try very hard to heed your advice, but don't forget, I'm a Jewish mother and worry is all we do.

Thank you. They are scuba diving right now and I'm a wreck with worry. They are 100 miles out from shore. I love your kind words and truly hope so.

@DianneN You are such a beautiful couple. I pray God blesses your marriage. I've been married a total of 34.5 years and if I could speak anything into your new marriage I would say; "Keep the lines of communication open and understand that conflict is normal and it can cause us to grow maturely if we allow it to. And choosing our battles wisely is so important. Just for an example, men tend not to put the toilet seat down or they squeeze the toothpaste in the middle and they make messes. Well I choose not to make issues out of those things and just take care of them myself. Also having a date night once a week or date luncheon which ever works for you both. God bless you both!

Wow. That is a beautiful photo. Seriously, it could be a puzzle or on a calendar or something. What a cool thing that the place shares the name of your daughter in law.

@DianneN If I try to look through a vast amount of trees, I could glimpse the sea from my veranda. - After hurricane Sandy hit us in 2012 the view was very clear - but not now.
