Wedding'd and Dowry'd Out!!

Today... marks the 14th!!! yes FOURTEENTH Wedding, dowry or civil wedding we have been to in 6 weeks!! 
Serge has been Best man twice, I have been Matron once, Isabella has been flower girl twice and I have done 7 wedding cakes.
Enough already!!
And that is all close family and friends not to mention the umpteen other invitations we received and didn't even consider!
Today was the civil wedding for Solange, our former house girl.
Who knew when she showed up at our gate about 5.5 years ago that we would be at her wedding today.
She came with no experience  but we quickly grew to love her in many ways.
We journeyed with her through an abusive relationship, encouraging her time and time again to leave ... so glad she finally found the strength to do that but what a journey it was.
And today, she civilly married a good Christian man - as she says. He's younger than she is but she says he loves her and will do her and her son good.
Serge and I met him, D'amour, today for the first time. He was so warm and appreciative to us. We are blessed. I gave him a stern, big sister warning that if he ever did Solange wrong, he'd have us to deal with! :-)
One never knows when you allow someone into your life, where the journey of life will take you together and how you will impact the lives of each other - no matter what the social class, race, etc.

We have another wedding on Saturday... then believe it or not.. no more weddings until July 27th - Solanges!
