She's Married...

Posted by Strlady at 6:22 AM

My little girl is no longer playing house.


She is all grown up and married.


After a year of planning...




and down right stressing out... it happened. 


Family was re-united


And new bonds were strengthened


Birthdays were sung


The vows were rehearsed.


Then, in the early morning,


the girls got ready to be dolled up.

And finally, that evening...


Her Dad and I walked her down the aisle...


and handed her over into the care of the man she loves.


To have and to hold...


in good times and in bad...


for richer, for poorer...


in sickness and health...


to love and honor...


for all the days of their lives.

 I'm back home now. A big sigh of relief that it's over and at the same time missing that little girl that wanted to be all grown up. Today I pulled out her baby pictures looking for that first photo on the post and found many memories waiting to be recalled.


These will be added to the treasures gathered from her life. Trinkets to pull out when I miss her. Trinkets to remind me how happy she was the day she wed, and in truth, what else can a mother ask for?
