When we got married several years ago, we picked a few good friends to stand as witnesses to our union. Most of them are very close to us while others were friends of our parents. I remember how surprised someone was when we informed him that we wanted him as a sponsor because we thought (and still think!) that he is very capable of guiding us through our marriage and family life. He said he’s too young for the role but eventually, we got him convinced!
Nine years after, I am now asked to stand as secondary sponsor for a wedding! The bride was one of the students who served as an intern during my stint at the university’s guidance center. And how time flies. She is now about to get married! Am I really that old?! Hahaha! Unfortunately, we can’t make it. One day soon, she’ll be looking for baby shower treats and preparing for the arrival of their bundle of joy. I feel old. Hahaha! And since I have been “suffering” from baby fever, I am more excited about baby showers, baptisms and first birthday parties these days than weddings. Hahaha!
