My group of ladies is specialized in one thing – showering our daughters and daughters-in-law with love and blessings. We do that consistently to each other’s girls.
We give bridal showers to bless the marriages of the brides and grooms. The bridal shower gifts are enough to help the new couples to start the new homes with bedding linens, bathroom items, kitchen pots and pans, utensils and more.
When these princesses are expecting their babies, we give them baby showers – showering the new parents with warm wishes, cute baby gifts to support their new parenthood.
Even though my daughter lives 1000 miles away, and her baby shower is in Portland, Oregon. This group of ladies shows their love and support by contributing a sum of money to get several large items of baby gifts for my daughter.
This afternoon I went to a bridal shower for the daughter of a lady in this group. The party was elaborate with beautiful decoration and delicious food, sandwiches, scones, different kinds of tea and dessert. The gifts were generous. We enjoyed so much sharing the happiness of the bride-to-be. The groom-to-be showed up at the end, helping to carry the gifts home. We had a chance to congratulate him.
We will continue this tradition. It takes a village to support a child and the child’s child!
