My Wishes for Deena

We've never met face to face Deena, but I trust Alex's judgement implicitly. As you prepare to join your life with his, I wish you all these things:
  • May you feel welcome as a member of our family; loved and accepted just as much as he loves you and accepts you.
  • May you have a marriage that is more than even what you wildest dreams imagine.
  • May Alex find you attractive always, especially when you feel unattractive. May he always see you as the girl he first loved(even if this means he never notices when you change hairstyles or gain/lose weight).
  • May you have a houseful of love, between you both, your familes and all who know you.
  • May you have the man who is strong when you need him to be, yet understands and supports that often it is we, the women, who must be the strong ones.
  • May you worry only when you need to.
  • May Alex be your helium and your string: giving you flight, yet holding you steady.
  • May you be blessed with a peaceful home and the talent for keeping it so.
  • May your ends always meet.
  • May you find a man who trusts you enough to cry with you. There are few higher honors than a man's tears entrusted to one who won't disrespect them.
  • May it be forever.

I can't wait to meet you. Congratulations!
