Y and I were joining our friend BLB and her family for dinner two nights before her wedding, along with the newly arrived groom and his family. Her groom came through the door of her childhood home first, followed closely by his brother and parents. He made the necessary introductions first, then hurried over to where BLB was standing with us. He reached out and handed her a box of heating pads.
"I know how these help when you're stressed out, when your shoulders get tight, so I brought them for you."
She thanked him and leaned in for a kiss. Seeing his thoughtfulness, I had even more confidence that their marriage would work.
