Jonathan’s First Wedding
Copyright 2014 Sandie Nygaard
During the summer that he turned five, Jonathan learned about weddings. The fuss started when his sister Susan and David Anderson, her boyfriend since high school, came home from college for the weekend. She rounded up the family and made them sit down in the living room. Then she stuck out her hand. Jonathan’s other sister, Karen, sixteen years old, with her hair dyed orange that day, shrieked and bounded across the room to hug Susan. Jonathan’s mother hugged Susan, then David, eyes full of tears, and his father shook David’s hand.
“Glad to have you in the family,” he said.
Grandma Hudson also hugged them both and said to David, “Your grandfather and I grew up together in this town. Who would have guessed that one day our grandchildren would get married?”
