The view from my cup…
When my son was born. I promised him everything good. I feel like I’ve made good on that promise. On social media, I call him Chef Boy ‘R Mine. He’s the love of my life.
A few years ago, he met the love of his life on match.com. They married yesterday. I am over the moon.
We’re all in Ibiza, Spain. The wedding was the best I’ve ever been to. The reception was a heap of fun. Today, I have gloried in the fact that he is happy and has found, as he says, his Queen.
I haven’t had a lot of time with my daughter-in-law, but the little I’ve had, I adore her. She is intelligent. She is gracious. She is beautiful. My grandchildren will be awesome.
The view from my cup is overflowing with happiness. I am just suffused with joy. It’s so much fun to watch the wheel of life turn and to see one’s offspring do well. I couldn’t be happier.
Jeremy, my son, was uncompromising when it came to a helpmeet. He had high standards and he met them all. Vanessa is a treasure.
We can walk this world alone or we can choose a partner. My son has chosen well. I am beyond happy. My cup overflows.
