The Perfect Dress

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her
excitement--not even her parent's nasty divorce.

Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best
dressed Mother-of-the-Bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new young wife, Kat, had bought the exact same dress! Jennifer asked her to exchange it, but she refused. "Absolutely not! I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm wearing it," Kat insisted.

Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, "Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress to wear to your wedding. After all, it's your special day."

A few days later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, "Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it."

Her mother just smiled and replied, "Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding."

Great story! My daughter just got married 3 weeks ago. At her bridal shower in June, the mother of the groom and I were chatting and discovered we had the SAME dress for the wedding!!!! She was most gracious and returned hers. Can you believe of all the dresses...we bought the SAME one?!!

Thanks for stopping by this morning. Say...I posted the two domestic violence poems at the bottom of my blog, if you are interested. :)

This story made me laugh. When my daughter got married, I didn't even consult with the mother of the groom - guess that could have been a disaster. By the way, I finally accepted your tag on the six random things - check out my blog today. Sally
