It is a bitter sweet moment in life when you realize that the time to really let go has finally arrived. Oh yeah we say that when our kids go off to college but really we don’t let go. They think they are on their own but they’re not. You are right there to catch them when they fall . I know you will always be there but when a girl leaves her father’s house and becomes a wife things change. She has started a new family, and yes now, they these two must become one. So as a parent it is a bitter sweet moment. I thought I would share my thoughts with all those Moms out there getting ready for their daughter’s weddings. We did a great job raising our daughters. The joy and excitement of a wedding is still shadowed by the fact that our little girl has grown. We are happy, yet we miss that little hand in ours!

Here is a poem by Judith Bond I share with many of our Bride and Groom’s Moms. I hope you enjoy it.
And suddenly a child is born, a gift from God to you.
She learns to walk, she learns to talk, and
Suddenly – She’s two.
As years go by, a young girl grows, all bright, alert
and alive. She learns to read and write and
Suddenly – She’s Five.
And all the time it seems to be, she hardly changes when,
she’s caught with mommy’s high heels on and
Suddenly – She’s Ten.
And through it all you watch this child. The years have
gently flown. She turns to you to wave goodbye, and
Suddenly – She’s Grown.
OK I am now going to get some tissue!
So you’re getting married? Keep it in perspective. Enjoy the Moment.
