  I have a new title this weekend.
I'm the official

I'm the Mother of the Bride.

This weekend our family
and the groom's family
are gathering on Sanibel Island, Florida
for a wonderful wedding celebration.
Here comes the Bride

The M.O.B. has several important roles to fill.
I hope I have been a good listener,
 a cheerleader,
and a constant source of support for my lovely daughter.

We have discussed locations,
and the hope for the perfect tropical sunset.

I have found the perfect outfit.
A couple of months ago I went into 
our local Chico's store and 
the wonderful staff there helped me find
just the right things for a beach wedding in May.
I could be in their catalog.

I'm ready to be "the hostess with the mostest" for
all 15 people attending.

I'll be there for any last minute support, 
last minute details and 
calming of nerves.

So as I wipe away a tear or two
as I watch my daughter transition from my little girl 
to somebody's wife
I know it will be a beautiful and special day
full of wonderful memories for all of us.

Until Next Time-
