A Visit from Belle


I just thought I’d stop by to see how things are going. After all, The Wedding Belles is my shop, and Regina, Callie, Serena, Audra, Natalie and Julie are my family now. They’re just like my own daughters, and I love them all to pieces.

I hate it when one of them gets hurt or is in pain or struggling, especially when I feel it’s a man causing one of them trouble. I tell you, I had a wonderful marriage before my husband died, but sometimes I think I got the last good man on earth.

That is, I’ve done my share of dating…more than my share of dating, but some of those men…well, I don't even want to waste my precious time thinking about those men. Not one of them can even get close to what my husband was. That man was…a man. A good man, the best and once you’ve had the best…well, you get the picture. So no, a new love isn’t for me.

But my girls? Oh, I just want them all to be happy, to find a love like the one I had and just hold on to it. So, seeing how Regina and Dell are dancing around each other lately…it has me worried.

I mean, Regina has the ring and she and Dell have had the ceremony, but I can tell there’s something really wrong. Of course, they had that…that thing happen earlier this year, but even so, that should have brought them together, not pushed them apart. But every time Regina tries to pretend that things are all right, well, I can just tell that she’s putting on her good trooper face to keep from worrying me. It’s as clear as a crystal wine goblet that that is not a true and happy marriage, at least not the way marriage is supposed to be.

I don’t know whether to shake the two of them or to hug them, but I really hope that something happens soon. Something good, that is.

If it doesn’t…well, look out world. Belle hates it when one of her ladies gets burned.

"The last good man on earth"...what a compliment! :) Wouldn't it be wonderful if every wife felt they'd gotten the last good one?

It is always funny to hear those random thoughts! I also agree that I hate it when my friends get burned :-)

Thanks

Oh, Belle, you are such a wonderful woman. I don't know what I'd do without you! I know the other Belles feel the same! You watch out for us, listen to us, wipe our tears when need be. We love you!

I'm hoping Regina and Dell figure things out. I just have to believe they can find their happily ever after together!

And don't give up on one for yourself, either. What's that man's name who dropped by the shop inquiring about your late husband's car? Charlie? He seemed nice.

Belle -- the girls are really lucky to have someone like you around to care for them.

Belle! You always have the best advice, even if I don't always want to listen ;-)
