She invited him to the party when the groom saw him. He called the cops. They said that the groom got angry and asked to call the police when he came to dance with. However, what really happened shocking everyone – they say a picture is worth a thousand words, but behind this beautiful picture of me and my grandfather dancing, there is so much more to help. Give you a better idea.
I must take you back to where the story really begins. My grandmother and grandfather met in 1946 in Nashville Tennessee on a blind date that was set up by a mutual friend. It was love at first sight they dated for about six months before they decided to get married. My grandfather grew up in a strong Catholic Family. My great-grandparents immigrated from Italy in 1920 to start a better life for themselves and their family.
My grandmother grew up in an equally strong Southern Baptist family and her father. My great-grandfather was a Southern Baptist preacher at first, neither of their parents were very happy about their relationship and did not want them to get married. I was even able to see in their marriage paperwork on the wedding questionnaire form that they wrote their parents did not support their marriage due to their different religious beliefs. This was a big deal as they both respected and loved their parents, but they also knew that they were meant to be together so going against. Their parents wishes they wed on May 3rd 1947 at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Nashville, where my grandfather and his family were parishioners.
Following the wedding my grandparents set roots in Nashville and started on their family right away. Eventually, both of their parents came around to their marriage and even became great friends fast forward. 71 years later, my grandparents inspired the Wonder beautiful lives of their six children, nine grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. My grandmother passed away on December 27, 2013 with all of her family by her side. The years since her passing have been hard on my family, but especially on my grandfather.
They were best friends and experienced all the greatest things. Life had to offer. They enjoyed dancing together in their earlier years and playing Scrabble together in their breakfast room in the latter years. They didn’t need anything extravagant. They just needed each other and their family, one of the most important values I’ve learned in my life is the importance of family.
We’Re all very close and support one another through the victories and defeats life throws at us. My grandparents instilled in all of us what it means to be a family to lift each other up and to come together in good times and in bad. We Carry On Traditions like the family picnic every October and our annual Italian Feast, when we all get together to make our family recipes passed down to us from my great-grandparents from Italy. It doesn’t matter how far away we live. We all make the effort to travel back to Nashville and celebrate together for whatever the occasion may be.
We have a lot of love for one another beyond what most people experience today because of my grandparents on September 8 2018, I married the man of my dreams in the same church. My grandparents were married in 71 years ago. This moment was so special, not just for me and my grandfather, but for my entire family, I’m the first family member to Wed in this church, since my grandparents were married there as I walked down the aisle that day, I felt the magnitude of that moment and The same church where my grandparents made their vows to each other so long ago, my grandmother’s locket was wrapped around my bouquet. I held it tight. I knew she was there watching over me and smiling.
As I took the same steps she did long before me, though. 71 years ago I was a little anxious right before walking down the aisle, but between feeling my grandmother’s presence, having my father by my side and then seeing my husband to be waiting for me at the end of the aisle. I knew this was exactly where I was supposed to be all my anxiety and nerves, dismounted away. When I made my way to the front of the church, I saw my grandfather, who turned 95 this year, looking so happy and so handsome leading up to the big day. We were not sure if he would be able to make it due to his declining health.
I knew it was possible, he would not be there, but I also knew he would not want me to worry about him and to focus on the reason why I was there in the first place, to marry my husband start, a life together and, to one day Start our own family and traditions, just as he and my grandmother did, my heart was overflowing to see him there watching the ceremony. I could see on his face the happiness he felt for me, but I could also see a sadness hidden behind it. I knew who he was thinking about his love, his life, my grandmother for some time, leading up to the wedding I had hoped it would be possible for me to dance with my grandfather at the reception. My family was not sure if that could happen, but encouraged me to try if the right song came on and he felt up to it. While I was walking around the reception greeting our wedding guests, the band started playing My Girl by The Temptations, and I knew this was it.
This was our song and this was our time to dance. I walked over to my grandfather and asked him if he would like to dance with me. I have never seen him smile so big in my life, with the help of my family, he stood up and we danced slow and steady, but to the Beat of the Music. A wave of emotion came over me. I wanted to live in this moment forever.
My sweet 95 year old grandfather, who means so much to me, was dancing with me at my wedding. I felt so much love and so much joy. I tried my best to hold back my tears, but even with all my efforts, I could not stop the tears from rolling down my face. It was the happiest tears. I’Ve ever cried, of course, when my grandfather saw my tears.
He asked me why I was crying and I laughed and told him because you were such a good dancer. He laughed too and gave me the warmest hug. I knew I would never forget this moment or the feeling for as long as I live. What happened with this bride was incredible. Mark worked as a manager at 25.
He got his first job and was immensely happy about it. He was still living with his parents and didn’t think about the future, but his parents had been trying to arrange his personal life for months. One day they invited a young neighbor for dinner. Then mother’s friend came with her unmarried daughter for a week. Mark was not against girls, but in his short adult life he was already a little disappointed in them.
One had cheated on him. The other was married and hid it one evening after another conversation with his mother about the time to look for a bride Mark registered on a dating website. He looked through the profiles of girls and could not decide who to write to. He was not a self-confident, macho man and he was well aware of that, but he wrote to a couple of girls and then he went to bed only at noon. The next day he saw a response on a dating site.
A pretty young girl named Amanda had written to him. There was not much information about her on this site, but Mark was interested. The correspondence turned out to be quite exciting and soon Mark and Amanda were communicating a lot on the dating site. After a few days. Mark offered Amanda to meet several times the girl postponed the date and Mark began to seriously fear that she was not who she said she was.
But finally, the girl found some free time on the next weekend Mark reserved a table in a restaurant, visited a barber shop and thought about the date with excitement. Saturday turned out to be warm and sunny. He bought flowers and came to the Rendezvous point in the park beforehand. The young man peered at the faces of the girls passing by he was very much afraid that Amanda would not like him and she would pass by or that she might not look at the picture. Suddenly, someone with a pleasant female voice, greeted him from behind.
He turned around and saw Amanda, she was a small height and quite pretty, and she had a cane in her hand. Limping a little and leaning on her cane Amanda stepped closer Mark was a little embarrassed. He had never seen her in her full height in her picture. The girl was embarrassed by her limp too, having recovered from a surprise. Mark gave Amanda the flowers and they leisurely went to the restaurant the evening passed quickly Mark liked the ease and friendliness of Amanda.
After the restaurant he walked her home and on the way he dared to ask her about her limp. The girl smiled, sadly, as if she was apologizing and told him that it was a congenital trauma. Amanda’S mother had tried to treat her, but unfortunately she could not pay for the treatment in an expensive Clinic and her father left immediately after Amanda was born. So now she was saving most of her earnings for the surgery, but it will take her a long time to save because she was working as a manager person in the convenience store after their first date Mark and Amanda started spending a lot of time together. Amanda felt good with him and was already dreaming of getting married and was waiting for Mark to make the first move, but he kept hesitating.
His parents knew about his affair, but he did not see the girl. He was sure that his mother would not like Amanda. She had her own ideas of unwavering beliefs about her son. However, Mark’s love for the girl helped him to make up his mind and he invited Amanda to a family dinner. The parents waited impatiently for their guest Amanda, put on a modest dress, styled her hair beautifully and did discreet makeup.
The girl was sure that the acquaintance would go well because they loved each other, but how cruelly she was mistake, taken as soon as Mark introduced her to his parents, his mother, not even hiding her displeasure, bombarded her with tactless questions. She was interested in what she was doing and how much she earned who her parents were and why she was limping. The girl could see that his parents were not fond of her. Mark was silent with his head down and Amanda felt very uncomfortable and embarrassed Mark’s. Mother continued to taunt her during the whole dinner and at the end of the evening, both parents told her directly that they were not happy about their future.
Daughter-In-Law Amanda could barely contain her tears and left without saying goodbye. Waiting for a cab outside Mark tried to console her, but it all looked so clumsy that it hurt the girl even more when the car pulled up. Amanda got into it and drove away and Mark stayed behind. He stared after the driving away car. For a few.
More minutes and then sighed heavily and headed for home, where a serious conversation with his parents awaited him Mark, sat down tiredly in an armchair and told his parents that he did not want any more such ugly scenes that he loved Amanda and therefore she would be His wife, even in spite of his parents displeasure his mother, tried her best us to persuade her son to leave the [ __ ] when there were so many beautiful girls and healthy girls around much better than Amanda Mark just shook his head and went to his Room slamming the door, he didn’t come home for the next few days.

She loved to draw especially buildings and houses and dreamed of becoming an architect in the future. Her drawings always won first place at Municipal exhibitions and now Amanda decided to try to make her dream come true.
In the meantime, Mark’s parents could not calm down and thought about how to save their beloved Son from an unworthy. In their opinion, woman Mark’s mother was not even ashamed to come to Amanda in the store in front of all the buyers. She said many unpleasant things to her appealing to her conscience and even tried to pay her off with money, but Amanda withstood the attack because she loved Mark for real so strongly that in the evening she did not even tell Mark about the disgusting Act of his Mother, in order not to upset her beloved once again, but the parents did not stop more precisely most of all his mother, because Mark’s father had already come to terms with his son’s choice and understood that they really loved each other. A couple of days later, the mother showed her son, a picture of Amanda with another guy, even though Mark loved the girl jealousy and his mother’s exhortations got the better of him and he believed her. Amanda cried and swore Fidelity, but Mark disbelieved and didn’t call her for a month, and then he did cool down a bit and wanted to make up.
But Amanda said with a shiver in her voice that no one had ever hurt her as much as Mark had so she never wanted to see him again soon. A new saleswoman appeared in the convenience store. She told Mark that Amanda had left the city. The man was upset and angry with his mother, but she continued to insist that Amanda was cheating on him and soon found him a new bride. Sarah was attractive and from a wealthy family she quickly became a friend to his parents.
The woman often helped his mother to prepare a festive dinner and was nice to his father and soon Mark was engaged to Sarah. The wedding was beautiful. The bride’s parents presented the young couple an apartment and predicted a happy future at first. They helped him with a lot of money, then tried to get Mark more prestigious job, but Mark lacked initiative and personality and, in the end, the simple, clumsy manager became a bad son-in-law and husband.

He saw a suitcase and a farewell note in front of the apartment door. The years passed Mark became 40 years old and was divorced. He liked to drink heavily and still lived with his parents.

Soon, all the tenants of the houses for demolition were invited to City Hall Mark and a few neighbors stood outside and waited for his parents. Suddenly, a beautiful car drove up to the building an Exquisite and beautifully looking woman in expensive clothes got out of it and was actively discussing something with her assistance. One of the neighbors said that, to her knowledge, this woman was the chief architect of the new construction. When the woman approached Mark, she suddenly stopped abruptly and said hello surprising.

You were so quick to believe it. With these words, she turned away to leave, but Mark tried to stop her and then began to apologize for everything he had done and confessed that she was the only love of his life. But Amanda looked at him indulgently and said that it was not worth revisiting. The past she already has a loving husband and an adorable daughter, and she had left long ago Mark in the past, the woman walked into the town hall.
