#25 - One of the cutest things I remember about a mother giving a speech at her daughter's wedding had to do with the fact that she and her daughter had obviously had lots of "disagreements" during the daughter's growing up years. The mother was very nice, but ended by saying "And I wish you many children like yourself" 'Nuff said! LOL
