All grown up!

It's hard to believe, but my little boy, my baby, is getting married this weekend! If you haven't experienced the phenomena of raising a baby into an adult, this may sound dorky, but excuse me, I can't help it! I pushed him into the world (all 8 pounds) 25 years ago and have adored him everyday of his life. I fed him, bathed him, dressed him and spanked him.

I wrote down his first words and recorded every precious thing he did! He was my buddy....always at my side. He's always been a good kid, little brother , only son. He grew up to be a hard worker, respecter of all persons and unafraid of challenges. He loves his Father and his family. He has a strong unshakable faith! I've always thought he'd be a good husband. Having two older sisters has given him lots of skills. He knows how to communicate, cook, shop and sing. He can make just about anything!
His strength and determination, have touched my heart and made me proud!
His style and good looks compliment his charming sincerity.

So it is with great pleasure and no reservations, that I release him into the arms of his lovely bride, where he will continue to grow into a Godly man that will love, protect, provide and lead.
Clint, it's an honor to be your mother. I have been blessed many times over! I have no doubt that you will be a good man, husband and father. I will be cheering you on in prayer. Trusting God to faithfully finish, in you, all that He has begun. Passing on to another generation, the hope that lies within you.

That's beautiful. absolutely breathtaking. I sit at my desk at work and tears drip down my face. I have 2 things . . . 1)I'm so proud of Clint. Even though I have grown, I still imagine everyone else at the age that I last left them and Clint should still in junior high, following us around at softball tournaments, squirting us with water guns and giving us high fives with that sweet grin that he has. He was awesome. .still is I have no doubt.
. . and 2) As a mother of two baby boys of my own, I feel as if I'm looking into my future. I pray that my sons grow up with the curiosity, adventure, love and faith that I've seen Clint with . . .
Congratulations to you and your sweet family.
