hawaiian wedding part two

when it was time

to get ready for

the wedding.

i’m of course

going tie-less

because i still

don’t know how

to tie one and

my wife is

no longer here

to curse and assist me.

we took our

seat in the

sun and as the bride

started walking

down the aisle,

maddy started to squirm

and make some noise.


we retreated and

i kept one

eye on maddy

and the other on

the wedding.

i knew that


would have been

up there with

the others,

and i would have

been here doing

what i am doing

and i kept it together

until i looked

down and noticed


name listed on

the wedding program.

after the wedding

maddy took her


place in the photo

(as i look at the photo and think about the sentence i just wrote, i figured that someone reading this may take the sentence literary and think that kevin would have been holding liz, but the visual made me laugh out loud so i’m leaving everything as-is).

  1. Hi,

    I found your blog on the American Widow Project Web site, and I am wondering if you would be interested in the latest book released by Andy Andrews, The Heart Mender. It is about a World War II widow and how she comes to terms with her new life, finds forgiveness, and learns to love again. It’s a really touching story that you may find beneficial and want to share with your readers. Please send me your mailing address if you would like to receive a complimentary copy.

    Thank you.
