Having a very small family and now being ‘older’ rather than ‘younger’ I’ve not had many wedding invitations recently. Therefore I was so excited to receive one for last Saturday. Josef came to England from the Czech Republic half a dozen years ago.
Although an engineer by trade, he had to work in a care home for a while until he qualified as a physiotherapist. He has now met and has married a lovely Christian local girl. Joseph has no family in this country and just a few relatives back in Europe.
Therefore those of us were kind to him when he first arrived in this country were invited as guests to his wedding. What a lovely unexpected pay-back for our kindness all those years ago.
