Wedding Wednesday

Her ring is gorgeous. And her glow is genuine. 

Still,

I can't quite believe 

This!

is happenin'

A few posts back, I said that big things were happening in the fishbowl. Well, now I can tell you that last Saturday, my dear darling Daisy got engaged.

We are planning a wedding!

I'm still trying to figure out how we got to this point. Daisy just learned to read not too long ago, and started jr. high school last month. Or so it seems. I'm not ready to shop for wedding dresses. I am barely recovered from the trauma of shopping for pageant dresses!

Now in less than 90 days, my grown-up little girl is going to run her own household, decide how often to clean her bathroom, choose her own throw pillows and doormat, and have disagreements about where to squeeze the toothpaste.

I'm feeling a whirlwind of emotions.  I don't know whether my tears are more because I'm happy for her or because I'm mourning the loss of her reliance on me and Mr. Fish and the carefree days of being single.  She's a smart,  mature girl, and I trust her judgment. I always have. I need to hold onto that.

My prayer for her {and all my children} is that they will have a strong marriage full of fun, joy and fights that end with kisses. I pray that they will never experience the sting of divorce, and that their children {and every generation thereafter} will call them blessed and will know and follow God.

In the end, that's what really matters.

This will be a big DIY wedding, complete with some crazy surprises, if we can pull it off. So every Wednesday, I'll be blogging about the preparations and what I've learned. Or more likely, what I should have learned. That way you can suffer learn right along with me. (See mother. See crazy mother. See crazy mother run. See crazy mother run into a bank. And rob it).

Keep swimming, and feel free to share tips or advice,
Ms Fish, a self-appointed wedding planner

PS: I would sure appreciate hearing from other mothers. Does anyone out there blog that is as old as me? If so, how did you feel when your daughter(s) got engaged? I certainly had no idea what my mom was going through 27 years ago.

Congrats! Weddings can be so fun to plan. Do you remember who the caterer was that made the cupcakes at CJane's gathering in St George? I have a friend getting married there and she would love the name.

Ms. Fish said...

Hi Ronelle,
Thanks! It is exciting. And crazy! I hope I'm up to the challenge of planning a wedding. I bought a little planner notebook, so everything should be good. LOL!

I sent you an email with the information you wanted about the cupcake girl.

Thanks for stopping by.

CONGRATULATIONS! However, I'm pretty sure she isn't old enough to get married...she was barely old enough to babysit when we moved!

Aha...there's the big announcement! YES you are old. You could be a grandma next year. Not saying you will...but you could. And what a fun (and YOUNG) grandma you'll be.

Good luck with the wedding plans.
