It seems like my life has been full of countdowns. I don't know why I look at it that way, but I am always anticipating some sort of "event" in my life. My first real countdown didn't start with my wedding (just because we didn't have one). Instead it was counting down the months and days until I met my first child, Jordan. I'm so glad she was born a week early...
Since then I've counted down other due dates, vacations, adoptions, school breaks, and more vacations. Now, I am in the process of counting down another big event. My daughter's wedding. Since we have just a day under six months left until the big day, we've been making some plans and decisions. And, it is really starting to sink in. When she left home, it was easy to believe that she would be back home in four years. But now that she has a husband, the story has changed. She has moved from our family to her own family. And, one day she, too, will experience all the wonderful joys of being a mom.
I'm not gonna lie. I've been a little teary-eyed about it all. I was
secretly hoping she wouldn't make me go through with a wedding. I don't like
to cry in front of people. I don't like to cry anywhere.
So, I'm counting down five months and twenty-nine days until the wedding. Or until I cry in front of everyone.
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri
