The wedding is over, and it was absolutely beautiful. Our kids are married now and headed off to their honeymoon cruise.
Last night I looked into that beautiful face of the first blood relative I ever laid eyes on, and danced to “What a Wonderful World.” He truly is the most amazing young man on the planet. I am so happy that he and Taylor have one another to love for a lifetime.
I always dreamed of this…starting a family. Raising a family. Doing it the way I always imagined. Now they will start and raise a family of their own.
Some dreams do come true even when other ones don’t.
You have to hold on to the ones that do.
Last week while I was at school, part of what we studied about was being fully present. I decided to do that on the wedding day. Once the wedding started, I left my phone in the car on purpose. When I got back to the car late at night there were a zillion messages. Even people asking me questions about the wedding day, or needing help with this or that. (For example, “Where should I park???") With my phone in the car, I was able to avoid distraction and just focus on Dustin and Taylor.
It was a great decision. I fully experienced the day.
My phone becomes my slave at times. I want to change that.
I want to experience the wonders of the world unhindered.
