134 Blinks

Yesterday, Josiah, Chloe, Samuel & I spent some time with the caterer.

One forgets the wonderful things that can be done with food. We went to talk logistics, and for a tasting. Needless to say, the tasting was the much funner part.

As of today, there are a mere 134 days until the Fourth of July.

134 more days to get all the wedding ducks in a row.

134 more days to find a dress for myself that I love. ( I have one, as a back up. But I don't love it)

134 more days to lose some more weight.

134 more days to let my hair grow. And get the nerve to *color* it for the first time.

134 more days to get a new son, who has become a delight to us.

134 more days before Samuel becomes an only child (at home). Temporarily, Lord willing.

134 more days of " MOM!!! I need help."

134 more days of Scripture digging with her, for the moment and the future.

134 more days of baseball talks.

134 more days of that smile that is looking for a favor.

134 more days of seeing her calm face sleeping.

134 more days to see her flurry-self coming down the stairs in a whirlwind, ready for life.

134 days to impart that last minute marriage wisdom before she leaves.

134 more days to feed her, love on her, learn to let her go. Completely.

And now that I got myself crying again. I'm going to go, too.

There is only one thing that this southern girl can say to this post ..

"Bless your heart!"

It's the balm that calms all sorrow.

I have to agree with Becky - bless you heart. This is hard. But... you have a LIFETIME of loving her, a LIFETIME of being her mother, a LIFETIME of helping her with newlywed issues, a LIFETIME of being her friend and a LIFETIME of joy ahead of you as she starts her new life as a married woman. (And hopefully, a LIFETIME of being a grandmother!) A new chapter in your life and in hers. She will always need you. She will always want your advice, your hugs and your love. And you will always be there for her because you love her so much. She is your daughter, your baby. Nothing changes that. Remember - you aren't losing your daughter, you are gaining a son.

Saying all that - believe me, I know that this is so hard. I am praying for you. Change is never easy. But our sweet Father will give you strength and grace and will be by your side every step of the way.

Hugs to you my friend. Have a great weekend.

P.S. Tell my how that hair coloring goes - I am getting grayer and grayer, especially in the front, but I just can't cover it right now!

Aw, I can only imagine all that's going on now. Every season in life has such bittersweet moments.
I pray you enjoy your time together during these days!
