Day 271- Wedding Day

Hopefully no one has noticed but I actually missed a day. Well, actually two. But the last few weeks have been pretty exciting around the wise gardens, all leading up to this incredible day. And especially the last two days - as mother of the groom my days have been delightfully full as family has come in from all over the country for this special day. The laptop stayed closed and family became my total focus until I fell exhausted into bed. Until today. As I sit in the pew here, groomsmen and hubby busy with picture taking, rehearsal dinner a blur of laughter and tears, flowers all completed for the ceremony, I realize that for one more son my job is done. "Mothering" is no longer required, rather my role now is to just to be Momma... and Momma-in-law. So enjoy what I get to look at while I wait for the guest to arrive. And thanks for sharing this moment with me!

Congratulations! Having two adult sons myself who moved away many years ago to live out their own lives, I'm not sure that I can say the 'mothering' is ever really finished. It's nice to be called back to that role every now and then.

The arrangements are just lovely. I rather like the combination of Palm fronds, Ferns and Caladiums ... very lush and tropical.
