Life is funny. I can honestly say one thing I never thought I'd do - is attend my own mother's wedding. That is exactly what I did yesterday. Daddy has been gone for over 2 years and God brought LaVaughn into Mom's life soon after. (LaVaughn's wife passed just a few days after my Dad, by the way.)
"Here comes the bride!" (with my brother, Kevin)
I have to mention the church was packed - folks standing in the back! Over 200 people came to see this couple unite in marriage. Our two families had not met and we had a great time getting to know each other...so much in common, especially in the Lord.
I have watched my mother bloom in this new relationship and it's been a joy to watch. My brother's grandson gave her this touching poem he wrote about watching the love between his grandmother and LaVaughn (we call him L.V.)...
I cried when I watched her come down the aisle. Later several said, "It'll be okay..." misunderstanding my tears. I was SO happy for her. Mom and Dad did not have a "wedding" - this was a big deal for her and she was so excited. At 79 years of age, she had her special "princess" day!
Afterwards of course - we had two-steppin' and partied the afternoon away...
So, congratulations to my Mom...a beautiful, brave woman who is not afraid to live life to the fullest.
