My Mom is a newlywed.
I sometimes think of the day when I'm going to have to "give away" one of my boys, or the princess. I think of what that will mean to our little family. Having to share MY baby with another person and another family. And, to be honest, I don't think it's going to be much different than "giving away" my Mom. She has always put us first, and I have never questioned the love she has for me and my brothers for a second. If you ask me, that's the best mother anyone could ask for!
I thought it might be hard for me to give her away, let her move away...but, it's been surprisingly easy.
Not that I won't miss our lunch dates, or spur of the moment spend the nights with Nana, or Sunday afternoon trips to the grocery store by myself because she has come over to keep the kids for me during football season.
But, because I couldn't be more happy for her.
Because I couldn't have picked out a better life-long partner to better suit her.
No one deserves to find the happiness that comes when you have finally found the one God has meant for you, more than my Mom!
I love you Mom, and I am so thankful that Bill is now a part of our family.
I was telling Thomas yesterday about Bill at TJ's game on Saturday. How we took the babies over to the playground, and he pulled out his camera and starting taking millions of pictures...just like he was a proud Grandpa! Not that I wasn't happy to have him before, but honestly...that stamped it and sealed it in my heart!
Thank you for being my mom's best friend.
For being her loudest cheerleader.
For being her soul mate.
For being a shoulder to cry on and a ear to listen.
For making her laugh.
Most importantly, for being a Godly man and leader who will love, honor, and cherish her always.
Here's to the Bride & Groom!
