For most people their wedding days are one of the most significant moments of their life. For many of the brides on their special day their emotions run high. They have to deal with stress or getting everything planned and the excitement of starting the next chapter of their life.
You’ll meet a bride, Pacia, who was overwhelmed with emotions on her big day when she realized some of the people closest to her were not there.
Her grandfather couldn’t make it to travel to the wedding and Pacia was devastated. She had always looked up to her grandparents and valued that they had managed to stay together and in love for over 70 years.
But even though her grandfather could not travel to the wedding he was by no means forgotten.
Pacia’s sister stood to give a speech to the wedding party and she told them she had spoken with her granddad on the phone. What he said was shocking. “I do not have any wisdom to give you today”, he joked in his typical grandfather charm. His clever remark put everyone into good spirits and Pacia became even more overcome with emotion.
Later Pacia’s father got his chance to give his speech. But this time he pulled out his phone and simply said, “For some real advice, I want to give something a try.”
Pacia’s husband hands her the phone and she hears a “Hello?” on the other side.
It was of course her grandfather and she wept tears of joy as she got to talk with him on speaker phone for everyone at the wedding to hear. It was plain to see that this one small gesture by her entire family filled her heart with gratitude and joy. She said she wouldn’t have wanted her wedding to have ended any other way.
