That sound of a crowd of happy people talking and laughing, moving-the swish of a skirt-a cough.
Wait-if you listen very closely, you can hear a bagpipe...well, maybe not...What is that?

People are lining the walk way to the reception room...
You look up-the sky is bright blue. It is a beautiful day!!
A bagpiper is coming down through the long winding line of people, his red kilt bright in the sunlight-a little drummer boy walks behind, a chapeau atop his head, both their music filling the air and your heart with it's victorious sound...bubbles are drawn and ready to cheer the two new couples as they walk past!!
It's so good to see sweet friends!!

Our two couples are coming through now!! You smile because they're together. Hugging people. Their mouths are moving, talking-I can't hear what they're saying, just that they're smiling and so blessed by so many dear people coming!! Bubbles float lazily in the air. When they get closer, we all yell and clap and cheer!!
As the two new families pass about to go inside, Chandler hugs his dad, and it makes you cry because they're both crying...
Fathers and sons, daddies and daughters, and the mothers that have given birth to these four children...what a day this is for all of them...
The music stops abruptly, only to begins again the way bagpipes do in their glorious way! Everyone is smiling and clapping-more bubbles...
And in go C&L and P&C to the bountiful reception that's been so beautifully prepared.
Heavenly music comes from dainty fingers plucking a harp in a corner...large green topiaries sit on the long, white covered tables that are piled high with luncheon-little sandwiches, cheeses, tall tiered platters of sweet fresh fruits, steaming bowls of shrimp and grits...trays piled high with chicken nuggets (loving Chick fil A!) and crisp vegetables with a myriad of dippings! Sweet tea and water sat in abundance at the end of the tables. And plenty of napkins for those people who always spill food on their white silk blouses!...

After Dr. Kendall did a count down, they both raced away, balloons flapping behind and horn honking and the rest of us just laughed and waved and were very, very happy.
