This morning in the wee hours of the morning my "little" cousin became a Dad. I was privileged to be the officiant at his wedding this last summer, which was strange enough, but now to call him a Dad...yeah, it's pretty awesome.
Baby A has been highly anticipated for the last few weeks. Her Mom was ready for her to be born a couple of weeks ago but she took her time. I know my "little" cousin will be a spectacular Dad. He's going to love this little girl, spoil her completely and cherish her for life. I'm so proud of all of them!
It does seem like a celebration weekend. Tomorrow I officiate at wedding number 4. Woo-hoo!!! My precious friend Meg and her love are getting married in a beautiful vineyard. The rehearsal just happened and there was much laughter and joy. I predict more laughter and lots and lots of tears tomorrow.
Meg is one of the most ah-maz-ing women I know. She is quiet, keeps most of her feelings close to her heart and her face gives.away.nothing. If you are lucky to be one of the people whom she has adopted into her world, she will do just about anything for you, be your number one champion and passionately fight for your cause. I have been blessed by her friendship in so many ways over the years and have been blessed to stand behind her and cheer her on as she has gone toe-to-toe with life. I can't think of anyone who deserves happiness more than Meg and I am praying, as she begins this new life chapter, that God will shower her with love, will keep drama from her doorstep for a long time and for her and her man to be partners in all ways for life.
Tomorrow, about this time, I will be pronouncing them husband and wife...and the party will begin! It's a good celebration weekend.
