I DO

Today we watched our daughter say those words “I DO!” Our Middle daughter Haylie came smiling into our lives in year 12 of our marriage and she has been a gift from God ever since. Haylie is a unique woman who knows what she wants and knows how to get it.  Justin our son in law is a good man. You can see the love they have for one another.

From the time she was little she was telling me that she wanted a big family and that she was going to be married early so she could do just that. To say Haylie is a traditionalist would be NO! Haylie and her boyfriend planed their pregnancy before they were married. Was I happy? No! However this is the advise I gave her.

Haylie-

Are you prepared for this? At 31 I sure was not prepared for you! I was scarred! However I was married to a Christ centered man who I am so thankful for today. We have struggled a lot over our life choices and still do. How ever, God has a plan for both of you! God’s plan for you is unknown to me! However, I trust God.  I do hope that you will be a Mother like me who continues to love her child no matter what.  I just have to let go! You are all grown up and your choices are yours! I give you back to the your Father who entrusted us to raise and love you. I will be here as your earthly parent who will always be thankful that God allowed us to be your parents. We look forward to knowing our grandchild and loving all of you. God will grow your life if you make him the center of your life. Put God first in all things.

Love MOM
