Today is the day most parents wait for. Some because it’s the end of an era. It’s the end of your little girl being your little girl. It’s the end of you being who they run to while they run to the arms of another. It’s the end of a lot of things but really it’s the beginning.
Today our little girl gets married. I’m up alone at an early hour thinking of the activities of the day. I have wonderful people coming to help me this morning prepare for the celebration tonight. I just needed a little time. A little time to just sit and think for a few minutes. It’s been quite a road getting to this day. Not only because Courtney wanted to get married at the old house that resembled a crack house just a few months ago. Not because we have been in transition between homes for over a year. Not because of a lot of things but because the last few years we have wondered if Courtney would come home. She lived a wandering life. We really never knew where she was. Was she safe? Was she healthy? Not sure. Yes we worried about her but mostly we missed her. Our family unit was void of one. Kyle is not the same without his sister. They are quite a pair. Don’t expect seriousness when they are together. This mom loves when all the chicks are in the nest.
However a year ago she came home. We didn’t know for how long but it didn’t matter. 5 minutes or 5 days just come home and I believe with all my heart she knew that. She was always welcome. This time it was different. She was emotional and clingy. “Don’t push Charma, she’ll let you know when she’s ready.” She did. One day she said I’m staying. I want Ocala to be my home. It was a good day 💜
Today we gain a son. We bring Justin into the fold of the family. I hope he’s ready. We are quite the brood. Today we give her away? No I don’t really like that. I rather think that we become a one person larger family. We depend on one another but mostly we love another.
Its going to be a great day. Today we gain another son. Welcome to the family Justin
