Five years ago, a guest stood up at a wedding to share words of wisdom and present some gifts to the newlyweds.
A few minutes into his speech, the bride took a step forward.
“Where are you going?” my husband asked with a smile.
“To receive the gifts” I answered mid-stride.
“Lets wait.” He tagged gently on my hand. “He has has not called us forward yet”
The guests did not see the twitch on my face.
Or the heart dropping to my chest. But my husband may have noticed the flick of chin and the stiffened back.
