I have had the amazing privilege of having both of my daughters live at home until their wedding day and it has been the delight of my heart.
Now I have come to this new place in life and when it came combined with the loss of my mom I find myself not knowing exactly how to deal with it or if even want to.
Somehow it seems like it would be easier to brush it all aside and move on, which is incredibly easy to do when school is so intense. It reminds me of the old Carly Simon song, "I haven't got time for the pain..."
Just so it is clear, I am thrilled for my baby girl to be fulfilling her God-given destiny with the man God planned for her in His infinitely tender way; there are just times where it takes my breath away to realize that she won't ever come walking through my door the way she did when she lived here.
I know that with time acceptance will come, I just have to ride out the storm.
Meanwhile, enjoy the picture from the day she became Carlie-Rose Danielle Chrystella Geneva Scarbrough Madrid.
