the magic of the wedding
and all the glitter swept up,
God provided us the blessing of 3 quiet days to sit and reflect
on the joy and wonder of it all.
Everyone tells you how fast the time goes by
and they’re oh, so very right!
But no one mentioned the hidden moments,
the private ones…
and just how much they catch your heart
causing it to skip a beat,
for a moment,
and freezes it there forever
fossilized in the heart.
It didn’t matter that we stood in a sea of hundreds
or whether all alone
they came (these special moments)
and illuminated so much joy,
so much gratitude,
so much wonder & awe,
their only escape was through
tears & laughter.
My mind has lapped over them now,
their impressions already smooth like beach glass
tumbled through the repeating waves
of the ocean.
And today i allow one
to spill out,
to share with you,
in my own way…
this private moment.
My darling daughter presented me this video to watch
the night before her wedding.
A precious letter
read by her
while a cascade of lifetime moments spent together displayed.
Forever on film,
for always in my heart,
causing so many skipped beats.
hugs n’ blessings for all the private moments we celebrate in our hearts!
