Twelve years ago, I had the great pleasure of giving away my niece on a beautiful beach in Southern California. The setting could not have been more romantic. Mother Nature presented us with a glorious balmy evening which allowed the sand ceremony to be beyond perfect. It was one of those memorable enchanting moments in life that makes all the trials and tribulations seem tiny in comparison. It got me to thinking that my upcoming 40th wedding anniversary would be wonderful to celebrate on that same beach. I will ask Mother Nature to repeat her performance.
