I'm Hearing Wedding Bells

Kajumi (my Pet Society pet) is standing in her wedding dress and tiara as a reminder of my daughter's March wedding. I'm feeling like someone's foot is a little too heavy on the accelerator. Slow down already! My mind is swimming and there is still so much to take care of.

Much like the first time I held my daughter—my first child—I am unprepared for the whoosh of emotion that merges suddenly upon my heart. It's adjustment time, I know... And yet while embracing change, I am grieving what must be left behind.

I've spent a year of letting go. I don't want to hold on. Kindly tell my emotions that.

I think our daughter might be getting engaged soon....fingers crossed. I don't know how I will handle it either. It's an exciting, but sentimental time for sure.

I haven't a CLUE how all that works yet. HA!
But I am sure one day.....we will feel those excited AND sad feelings.
Yes, like someone said......"Bittersweet."
I know it will all work out....besides it's that....."your not loosing a daughter, your gaining a son." Right??

Emotions can be some very swingy things! I just had to tell satan to get his hind-end behind me a minute ago and he ran off screaming! Hehe!
I NEED you to come over today!

It is definitely a time of happiness, excitement and mixed emotions. But, enjoy every memory in the making.

A medley of emotions, I'm sure, KJ. What a wonderful blessing a daughter is, and she will ALWAYS be your daughter.
Hugs to you as you go through all the preparations!
