.It's been awhile my fellow bloggers!...Nothing earth shattering, just a number of little things like working too much has made me put blogging on the back burner. One of those things was the planning and execution of a large wedding shower at my home for the daughter of a very good friend. I have watched this lovely girl grow up and cannot believe she is about to be married! Just yesterday she was giggling in my backyard pool with my kids. Just yesterday she was running all over the neighborhood playing outlandish pranks at our annual teen car rally. But she's grown up with my kids and they've all gone through college and are starting real life. How did that happen so fast.
It's odd to sit and watch another young women open presents that represent a hope of a new life to come....when you think it wasn't so long ago that you were that young woman. It's exciting to see the cycle of life ,love and marriage continue in the next generation. Ah, the stories we could tell them...the warnings we could give them...the reality checks we could force them to see....but no, that will not be necessary , life itself will teach them in due time.
Yeah, it makes me feel my age, but also being at a wedding shower reminds me of a life full of blessings. A wonderful husband, 3 great kids a nice home and some crazy pets. Marriage can definitely be a challenge but it's what brings richness to our lives.
