Joyful, proud, amazed, blessed....none of them even come close.
I am the mother of the bride. By all accounts, I should've been frazzled and anxious for every thing to run perfectly. But by some miracle, those feelings never came. Even as I dashed off to the drug store thirty minutes before the ceremony, my peace surpassed all understanding.
The weather and venue were beautiful, the guests were our closest friends and loved ones, and most importantly two people who have loved each other through great times and huge challenges honored God and themselves by committing their lives to each other.
As I reflect on my life, and especially on this very special day, I am all of those things - joyful, proud, amazed, blessed...and so much more than words can say.
