Monday Musing - A New Chapter

 
Posted by Picasa
 
The now grown up girl and the now grown up boy tied the knot a couple of weeks ago. A former class mate of the couple commented that it was about time.  Years of waiting and months of planning ended in less than a couple of hours. These now grown up children will begin a new life together filled with their hopes and dreams for the future.
The grown up girl spent her last night as a single gal with me. We talked for a long time that night. I couldn’t help but recall so many sweet memories. The first time that I held her, her first steps, the first day of school, her first heartbreak and many other firsts that made changes in her life. This night marked an ending; another life changing event would take place the next day. She may be a grown up girl, but this mama remembers the child that played with her dolls.
The grown up girl had breakfast in bed for her last morning as a single gal. Walking in the room to wake her for the big day, I paused for a moment. This was it, an ending for me, but a beginning for her. I called her name and told her that it was time to get up. The excited grown up girl sat up quickly and a smile spread across her face. She knew that the tray held her favorite breakfast but more importantly the day that she had spent months planning for had arrived. My heart saw the little girl that she was; my eyes saw an excited young woman that was ready to begin a new life. Today would be busy and memorable. She would attempt to keep each moment etched in her memory.
 The grown up girl walked down the aisle with a smile spread across her face. My mama eyes saw the bride walking down the aisle on her father’s arm, but the little girl was still inside. She was a lovely bride and the grown up boy was a handsome groom.
This chapter in our lives may end here, but a new one has begun. These grown up children will write their own story together. Their families will watch the story of their life unfold. May their hopes and wishes be the fuel that makes each dream come true.

  11. How wonderful and yes, sentimental post! I loved their story and may God bless their marriage forever, no matter what, just like your dear parents, together through thick and thin! I love it that she spent her last night as a single daughter with her mama; my daughter did too. Many blessings to them, to you and yours. Thanks for coming by.
