Wedding Eve

Tomorrow is the big day!
My oldest daughter is getting married.
This day has been coming for months
and it's finally here.

He's a keeper.  So is she.
I think they are a perfect match
and will find much happiness
and success
A couple of months ago,
I was teary about my daughter getting married
and a friend said to me,
"Isn't it like -- wow, great you're gaining a new member of the family?"
I said, "No, Not at all. I'm losing my daughter."
But with a little time, it is all good. 
I can do this :).  I can let go.
It is time that she moves on,
and that things change.
And yes now, it is like -
"Wow!  We have a new member of the family!" 
He's adorable. 
He's been wearing his wedding ring for two weeks.


  1. Best of wishes to you all! A good husband is a gift from the Lord.

  2. I enjoyed my daughters weddings. I have one daughter who is not married and would love to be - she looking for a keeper. Blessings to you and your family on the joyous event.

  3. We too had a marriage this year. I gained a wonderful daughter-in-law. Hope all goes smoothly.

  4. If the wedding is as exciting as the proposal, all will have a great day!

  5. Oh so happy for you and your family. It truly is a wonderful thing to celebrate a marriage and to welcome a new member into your family.

  6. LOL! What a sweet event for your family. Our family grew by a new daughter in law a year ago, and I have to say I truly love that girl. She did the same thing with her wedding ring for the last week or so before the wedding. Whenever anyone would tease her about it she'd say, "well, I need to get used to wearing it!" =)

  7. Aw, congratulations to them. I know how you feel. We'll have our second child getting married in the fall. Our daughter visits often, but a boy? They don't get back quite as often so I'm a little sad. But our soon-to-be daughter-in-law is a sweetheart, so it's all good.

  8. What a wonderful day it will be!!! There will be tears of joy shed by many.

  9. So sweet.. I have all sons, and you do lose sons, but with daughters you gain a SIL..they look lovely.. Its going to be a gorgeous day and will wait for pics.. Congrats and Happy New Beginning to you and your family.

  10. Congratulations and I hope tomorrow brings happiness and joy to the happy couple and your family.


  11. He's gaining a great family and wonderful mother-in-law! Congrats to all! Tammy P.

  12. They look so happy! Best wishes.

  13. So today is the day. Congratulations to you too. You do gain a new member (got one a couple of years ago) and this past August we were blessed with our first grandchild. I couldn't ask for someone who loves my daughter more and give thanks each day for her choice in a husband and now a father too.

  14. Sweetness! I wish them both much happiness and a long life together.
