Being a Justice of the Peace

My friends often ask me, “Why do you do the JP stuff?” My answer is always the same,” What’s not to like.”

I explain that I meet many, many interesting people. I become involved with them at one of the happiest times of their lives and work hard to make certain that their wedding ceremony is special and memorable. I continue to use my skills as a former English teacher and counselor through writing and helping them deal with the stresses that sometimes, unfortunately, accompany wedding planning – more on that in a later post. Finally, I become attached to all the couples that I marry as we share a special time together and I have the privilege to announce that they are married.

Yes, it keeps me busy, often at nights and  on the weekends, but the experiences are priceless, the people I meet are wonderful, and the fees I receive enable me to continue to help something I am deeply passionate about – the rescue and adoption of racing greyhounds.

So, what’s not to like?
