My daughter was married last weekend. So many “the best thing happened!” that it is hard to think what is the best thing that happened. I watched my baby girl walk down the aisle with joy and presence of mind. She enjoyed the ceremony and reveled in the reception. She was beautiful.
When I saw her before they left on their honeymoon, I looked into her eyes and saw a deep peace and joy. I didn’t need to ask her if she was happy. I said, “You like being married, don’t you.” She said Yes, I do. And then that was it. Our relationship has been changing over the last few years. And now she is a married woman, a woman of God, charged with building a Christian home with her husband. I think she is up for the task.
She is my Michelle.
