Our story today is called"Golden wedding".It was written by Ruth Suckow.Here is Shirlly Giffith to tell you the story.
Mrs Wille turned to her husband and said,"Pa,you are to change your clothes."
"Why are you in such a hurry? "
"Well,"she answered "you want to be ready when George comes,don't you?"
"WO,he will not come.How can he get his car through all this snow"
Mrs Willie quickly answered "yes,yes,he will,paul.They invited us to their home,didn't they?So you go now and put on your good clothes."
Mr Willie said something under his breath.He still looked angry.But he obeyed his wife.She watched he go and thought "why does he do this?"He always acted this way,ever since they got married 50 years ago.Everytime he knew he ought to do something.He protested.So it was everytime they had to go somewhere.George will not come today.It was just like Paul to say that.If he knew his wife was depending on something,he had to be against it.He never wanted to agree that anything was going to be right.He was always tearing down her hopes.If she felt that somehting would turn out right.He was sure it woule turn out wrong.She was always pulling forward,he pulling back.But in 50 years of marriage this pulling usually ended with his doing what she asked.Mrs Wille looked out of the window at the quiet white street.The snow was still falling.For a moment she became fearful that perhaps this time Paul was right.George would not be able to get through the snow but then she said softly "he will come.George will come" as she watched for her son-in-law Goerge .Her husband came back into the room.She looked at Paul and said"oh,Pa.why did you have to put on that old necktie?"
"What old necktie?"
"Oh you know what I mean!"she answered"I should thinking you would be ashamed to wear that tie at all.Just think of where we're going today.You go and put on the nice one.The one Jenny sent you for Chrismas.Just try and look nice for nice today.You don't know who may be there to see us."
again the angry look."Just who do you think is going to be there?"
"you know the dinner is for us."she answered.
"oh,there will not be many people who would come out in all this snow just to eat dinner with us?"But he went back and put on the other tie.
She felt like crying,her hands shook as she sewed."Oh why did he have to hurt her?and Why today?They knew each other so well.Each knew without even thinking just what little things could hurt the other.Now he was saying that this dinner was nothing special.Today their Golden Wedding anniversary-----married for 50 years.Nothing special?That was what he meant by wearing that old necktie.He always talked to her about their age how nobody cared about them.But to do it today on such a special day.Yet after all if you looked at it in one way.He was right.Here they were in their old house two old people living alone.Maybe he was right.And maybe she was a fool to want to celebrate her 50--year marriage to him.They had had enough bad luck as he always said that they would.Still she hoped for the best.He wanted to, but was afraid.She felt her grace silk dress.It looked so nice.And then she called to him."Pa,here comes George.Hurry and get ready.Paul was ready.In fact it was she who had to run back to her bedroom to comb her hair.And it was time to go.Pa turned to George.I did not think you get there."he said
"oh" his son-in-law answered"there is more than one way of getting here.And there in front of the house was a big sled."
Pa and Ma followed George to it.They wore heavy wool coats.Mrs Willie looked up and saw two of their friends in the sled.They were the Mr Reverent Boxter and his wife.They helped the old couple to get in.Mrs Boxter smiled. Her cheeks and nose were red from the cold and her eyes were bright.
"Well "she said"how is the bride and groom?"
"all are right I guess."Mrs Willie said.
And then George looked aroud and called"get up."
And the two big brown horses ran quickly.The snow was beautiful.The road and trees were like silver.It was warm under the furs in the sleigh.It felt like a holiday already.After a time,they arrived at a big farmhouse standing behind trees that looked like blue brown in the snow.They got out of the sleigh and went up to the steps and into the kitchen.There was their daughter Clara.She looked happy.Her fat arm were bare and she was pink from the heat of the ovens.What good smells came from these ovens----roasting chickens and biscuits.And there were dished everywhere.Clara took Mrs Baxter and Mrs Willie to a bedroom.There they took off their coats and gloves.
Clara said "Now MaMa,you don't have to help me.You go into the parlor and talk to Mrs Baxter.Minnie will help me.Minnie was Mrs Willie's daughter-in-law.So she was there too with Mrs Willie's son John.Mrs Willie was glad that she had worn her best dress.It wasn't a big party.But there were Clara and George and their daughters.John and Minnie and the Baxters too.
Mrs Willia sat in the chair and folded her hands.It was a party!The smells in the kitchen,or those dishes even the bedroom was very clean.And she could hear children's voices in another room,laughing and shouting.Now she looked around and she remembered,she remembered how this same house had looked when she had come to it 50 years earlier.Then it looked different.It seemed smaller and very empty with a feeling of open space around it.Suddenly noises broke into her thoughts.Shouts came from outside.Mrs willie turned quickly to the window and a great sleigh came up to the house.
People were in it and they are calling and waving.Again Mrs Willie's hands shook.But this time it was from happiness.She and her husband stood up and a great crowd of people came in,crying"Where is the bridal couple?"
"look at the happy groom."
"Well,well.Congratulatons!"
Then the door of the dinning room opened.Everyone said that ma and pa must go in first.They were gentle pushed forward by the others.They sat at the head of the table.Mr Willie looked almost afraid.He seemed to be thinking.All of this for two old people,but Mrs Willie was happy.She saw the room as one of the great light,glasses plated silver,white and yellow all around.There were laughs and calls everywhere and then all stood quietly while Mr Baxter a prayer.It was all very quiet and serious. only a child's voice broke the silence.They sat and the laughter began again.
"Oh,isn't this lovely?"someone said.
"Well.the gradma "said one of the children"What do you think of it?"
Mrs Willie turned pink and said slowly"I don't know what to say."Here was the celebration she had dreamed about and now it was real.So real it was actually happenning.
