One: What I have learned as a parent: Once your children are married,
(both biological and those by marriage) you hope they find joy, not
happiness, but joy in life and leave all the petty little things that
tend to creep into relationships, untended: own them then get rid of
them-like the weeds they are.
Two: What I have learned as a parent: It's easier to be a parent when
your children are home-once they are married you just hope that you
have raised them to be the best tender, loving, caring spouses possible
and hope that their spouse recognizes that in them.
Three: As a person, don't eat pizza late at night no matter how yummy it is.
Four: The mother in me has one last bit of advice to all the young
marrieds-treat your spouse like the treasure they are, they obviously
had good enough sense and taste to choose you for a partner; accept
their love, compliments and care for them-they love you. Now if I can
...just learn to go back to sleep when I wake in the middle of the night.
