Watching your child grow and have their own family.
My daughter will be a bride this coming weekend and I cant help but flow with emotions. I am sure every Mother that has had to watch her daughter become a wife has gone through the same thing I am.
The Pride that I feel is overwhelming. What a beautiful daughter I have. Delicate yet strong. Her head is on her shoulders straight, not cocked. Her heart is open and worn on her sleeve, not hidden. Her dedication to life and making something of herself is dead on.
I have watched my daughter grow through all of the stages in life and am so proud of her outcome. As parents, I feel we made so many mistakes with our first born, second born and third born……..But we did an awesome job along the rocky road.
I know as I watch my husband walk my daughter down that long isle, I will be in tears. Tears of joy and tears of sadness. So proud, yet so confused as to how time has gone by so fast. Proud that I know she will be more than ok in life and proud to call her our daughter.
I know the next journey in life for my daughter is about to start. I know there will be not only hills, but mountains that she will have to climb. I know there will be tears. I know there will be joy. I know the man that she has chosen to be her husband will love her with all of his heart and take care of her. ( I hope there will babies:) I know that together, this new husband and wife will conquer the world.
As we watch our children start their next step in life. It is ok to show tears, it is ok to show smiles. They will be ok. They will still need us at times. They will always be ours:)
All my love to my daughter, Erica and to all of the new brides in the world.
Enjoy your day world,
