Sunrise, Sunset

Things are finally looking up.   A word to the wise–don’t mess with xanga themes until you are prepared to spend some time on it.  They certainly don’t have all the bugs worked out yet.  On the other hand, it’s sort of fun, if you’re into that stuff. 

I have been trying to decide whether I am excited or just feel old.  Do I really have a daughter old enough to get married?  Apparently so.  Hard to believe.  On one hand, I am sad because her childhood is over, on the other hand I am truly delighted for them, and I couldn’t ask for a better son-in-law.  And on the other hand…there is no other hand! 

Sunrise, sunset…

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

  4. NO! We are NOT old enough!lol Our little girls are still in braids, dresses, white anklets and black mary jane’s Congratulations to your dear daughter

    Where are you going my little one, little one?
    Little dirndls and petticoats, where have you gone?
    Turn around, and you’re two.
    Turn around, and you’re four.
    Turn around, and you’re a young woman going out of the door.

    There’s another verse to that song but I can’t remember it. My mother used to sing it all the time. I never understood why it made her cry. Now I do.

    Congrats! My DD is fast approaching that age. Sigh. She is 14 and not really paying any attention to the guys yet. PTL! But I know there will come a day soon….

    RYC: Oh, motherhood is definitely the most challenging job! I’ve worked in an office before, with lawyers and case workers doing “important” stuff; but it doesn’t measure up to being a parent in terms of importance and and fulfillment.

    How old is old enough to get married??? (that one really is confusing!!– if you have the answer please, please tell me!!)

  11. serviceofone says:

    RYC: Thank you!!

    Congrats to you!!

    Wellllll…since you and I are only 10 days apart in age, I can definitely say you are NOT old enough to have a daughter getting married! I guess that wasn’t the question though, was it? Like celtic said, how old is old enough for a girl to get married…it most certainly would depend on the circumstances, the maturity level of both and who the guy is…God bless your next few months.

    This is gonna be so much fun for you all ~ yell if you need help ~ I’d love an excuse to come up! Congratulations ~

    Congrats! I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised how neat this next step in your lives will be. Once you get over the shock of it all, married children are a real blessing! Get a book and write things down…makes the planning much simpler if all the jotted notes are in one place!
    Blessings to you all!

    Yaay! I’m so excited for you and your family! It’s SO fun and exciting! My mom would have lots of good things to share if you need some! 🙂 The best thing that we experienced it seemed, was that mother did a lot of the keeping track of things and recording, and I helped do most of the designing and ‘picking’. 😀 We had a fun time, and best of all is the memories of the things we did as we was planning a wedding! 😀
