“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

Time has flown by, our daughter’s wedding is almost upon us. We had so much time. In a week it will be a memory. I hope we savor these moments, they don’t rush by.

Twenty six years have flown by. Our little girl is getting married. We want to see them take these steps in life. They signal steps we are taking too.

There will now be another household to host dinners. A new family is formed; she is still part of ours but now creating her own. It doesn’t seem like thirty two years ago I did the same. Time flies and creeps. The years have flown by in a happy blur.

We wonder did we do enough with our children when they were young? Did we go enough places and see enough things. They never got to Disney World does that make them deprived children? They have two parents that stayed together, does that make them blessed?

There is a point in the confusion, planning, packing, organizing and buying when we think it will never all get done. Yet, here we are, if there are any loose ends they will stay loose. It is freeing to know this is it. We can relax because there is nothing more we can do.

We’ve been manicured and pedicured, dresses altered, we are done. All this planning has come down to today. We sigh a sigh of relief and look forward to rest and relaxation, fun and frivolity and the celebration of a love story.

Life moves on, today is a big day in our lives, tomorrow is a big day in someone else’s. We enjoy the big moments and the small, they are the sum of our life.

 “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
― Dr. Seuss

Real life is great, and may seem boring in the light of the exciting. The exciting only shines because of the rest of our life it is set against. If we enjoy each moment for the gifts it brings, we enjoy our life. There is always something to smile about.

“May you live every day of your life.”
― Jonathan Swift
