Welcome to Wacky Wednesday!
What is wacky about this Wednesday, you might ask?
It’s where the characters from my books take over my blog and social media accounts so you can get to know them. Happening every Wednesday until launch day (I think…they’re my characters but I don’t control them.)
Yvonne: Theodore is getting married.
*sighs in relief
I have to admit that for a time, I thought it would never happen.
*props hand under chin and stares out into the distance
There was a time, before he went to fire camp, that I thought he’d found someone he was interested in…He tried to convince us that all those trips he made to Silver Creek were because he wanted to reconnect with his sister.
No man is that concerned with forging a relationship with his sister at that age. And they certainly don’t return home with a twinkle in their eyes, especially after spending a whole day waiting for said sister to show up.
He and Gaby seem as if they’ll have a good marriage, especially as it turns out she was the girl he was really meeting the whole time he was *air quotes visiting his sister.
I wish they weren’t rushing into things. This new generation—everything must be done now. Whatever happened to taking your time to learn more about the person before you make a lifelong commitment?
Who Are We?
Bruce: I know my wife probably tried to convince you she wasn’t sure about Theo getting married to Gabrielle. Don’t believe her.
She and the rest of the women in this family have been working nonstop to give Theo and his bride the wedding of his dreams. As for me, that little boy has already wrapped me around his little finger. Caleb is my grandson. Full stop.
As for Gaby and Theo…we’ll see. It doesn’t matter how long a couple knows each other before they get married, things change once they move in together.
Theo will be fine. He has a good head on his shoulders. He’ll figure it out. By the way, I’m Bruce McPherson. You met my wife, Yvonne, earlier.
Our Best Marriage Advice
Yvonne: I suppose I have to trust that God has Theo and Gaby’s marriage in His hands. I’m also going to throw in my best advice: talk to each other.
I know people always say communication is one of the most important things in marriage, and it is. If they get into the habit of talking about everything, no matter how simple it is, they’ll pull through whatever challenges life throws at them.
Bruce: Is that why I’ve heard about the perfect fruit cake remedy at least fifty times? Or how to get rid of soap scum in the bathroom?
*gives his wife an amused smile
Yvonne: Oh, you.
*slaps his arm lightly
What’s your best advice then?
*Bruce strokes chin
Simple: don’t leave God out of the picture. Anyone can build a strong marriage when they make room for God.
And communicate. Talk about everything.
*Yvonne and Bruce chuckle
Yvonne: It’s just as well these nice people can find out all about Theo and Gaby’s marriage in a bit.
Bruce: Yes. His Perfect Family releases on May 26, 2023, and they can read all about it.
