Ceremony as a Gift
you and I are lucky, really lucky, we will live into our eighties
or nineties. For most who reach that age there typically comes
a restriction in freedoms. Often, some form of assisted living
is necessary to maintain a quality of life. Many elderly lose
the ability to walk while others cannot leave their beds. We
might have other loved ones, of any age, who are restricted to
or care centers because of illness or injury. Their lifestyles
are equally "shut in."
the setting of your wedding ceremony is not critical to you,
and if you have a friend or relative who is confined to a home
or facility then feel free to consider having your ceremony
in their company. You can imagine what this act of kindness
does for them.
nursing homes and care facilities are most often delighted
to host such an event. It lifts the spirits of their patrons
life and newness to an otherwise highly predictable routine.
A Ceremony conducted at such residences or facilities become
a loving, heartfelt gift.
