The Circle Of Love
One of the greatest joys in a mother's life is to see their children fall in love and marry.
There is a certain comfort in knowing that your child will experience that blessed bond- the ultimate commitment of sharing passion, happiness and love.
But their is also a quiet relief to know that they will not face misfortune, sadness and disappointment alone. A mother wants to know that when she leaves this earthly life, her children will have the support and strength of their spouses in order to continue reaping the bounty of this beautiful life.
My firstborn, Erin, became engaged this weekend, and there are no words to describe this tranquilizing happiness that floods my being! I have prayed so long that she would fall in love and marry someone who appreciates her beauty and her kind heart. Erin has been through some tough times in the past few years( see old blog post) and she deserves to be happy.
We all love her fiance, too, and welcome him into our family with open arms. He is a great guy and I know he really loves my daughter.
But I also get a bonus prize! His five year old daughter! Whom we already love dearly!
I am truly blessed!
