Rite of Passage

Today my baby boy got married!

I wasn't there.

They got married in Iowa and I live in Wisconsin. They only told me last week Wednesday that they were getting married today so not enough time for me to get there.

NO they didn't have to get married- they wanted to get married. Like mother like son- I only knew their father 26 days before we got married!

I haven't met my new daughter - in - law yet (I have seen pictures of her and she's very pretty) but I did send my dad to check her out and report back to me. She passed the Grandpa test.

Both my daughters have met her and they were at the wedding so family was represented.

Today my son promised to protect, provide for and support another.

He promised to love, honor and respect. (I'm sure the word obey never crossed his lips)!

He pledged his life to another and promised to be true to her for the rest of his life.

Today my son became a husband!

Today I cried!

Congratulations Whitney and Krissy! May you always be as happy as you are today and may your love only grow stronger with each day you are together!
