SOL#19-1 – Wedding Day!

Standard

My son is getting married today!  I am excited, thrilled, overjoyed and…a little sad.

I will not be there to hear the vows.  I won’t be able to gaze through bubbling tears at the beautiful bride and the handsome groom.  I won’t be able to drink in the moment they declare their love for one another from this day forward…

And it will be okay.  It is not about me.  It is not about my husband or his sisters.  It is about their love for one another and their desire to become husband and wife without all the hoopla that often goes along with weddings.

My son is getting married today and although I may not be there to see it or hear it, I know I will feel it in my heart.  It is a good day and I plan to dance and sing and celebrate in my soul.

  1. I loved this! I couldn’t help but think how sad I would be to miss my son’s wedding, but you put it in perspective. You are so right that a wedding day is about the couple and their love and no one else. I think too often people put more focus on the wedding than they do the marriage. How wonderful that your son and his new wife know what is truly important!
