Stand by me

It was so emotional to hear the choir sing the song  “stand by me” – It was just so appropriate   for this lovely couple Harry and Meghan especially with all the negative stuff  that had  been going on before the wedding.

In a relationship, when two people love and care  for each other, they will stand by each other for better or for worse.

These words of the song made me think of how Meghan may have felt when she got the news that her father would not be at her wedding. and could imagine her singinging it over and over to Harry

I won’t cry, I won’t cry

No I won’t shed a tear

Just as long as you stand,

stand by me And darling,

darling stand by me Oh, stand by me Stand by me







The joy of a mother Doria Ragland #royalwedding2018

One of the most amazing moment in the royal wedding was watching the mother of the bride Doria Ragland.  She seemed to be carrying inside her  inner peace and joy. In a room filled with royalty and celebrities she .looked so humble, but like a little star she was radiating so much joy and happiness,  with a twinkle in her eyes. I guess sitting their alone, she was ok, avoiding all distractions and being in the moment enjoying  her daughter getting married.


As a single parent, I could relate, I was in tears as I looked at her  and  imagined the thoughts that where going through her head, the challenges that they must have had in life and  she sitting their wondering if she was dreaming that her wonderful child she carried for 9 months was about to marry her Prince.

What an amazing mother – Doria Ragland – Such a powerful message; standing solidly unshaken alone in an unfamiliar world, with grace, composure and absolute pride. She held her own and carried herself like a Queenl
