A celebration

IMG_4368Parents are divined with the grandest of gifts; to devise, design, nurture the next generation. Every thing we do, say, give, do not give raises the child; every mistake laying dormant until repeated for the next generation and every right celebrated in the ordinary and extraordinary. It is not only our duty but our legacy to leave more than we take.

Three generations, from near and far, gather to celebrate the marriage of the first grandchild. They celebrate the beginning of a new family, they celebrate tradition, they celebrate what love has created time and time again. IMG_4406 IMG_4411IMG_4377 IMG_4394IMG_4461 IMG_4472 IMG_4482 IMG_4503IMG_4531 IMG_4573 IMG_4619IMG_4547 IMG_4690 IMG_4709

“As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
Just as hate knows love’s the cure
You can rest your mind assure
That I’ll be loving you always

As now can’t reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older every day
Just as all is born is new
Do know what I say is true
That I’ll be loving you always”
– “As” by Stevie Wonder
