Tomorrow...

Tomorrow is the day. Ten years since I was married.

Tomorrow is the day I will stand on that same dock with my husband, joined by my three beautiful little girls.

Tomorrow is the day I promise to love him and be committed to him as I have been the past 10 years of our marriage.

Tomorrow is the day I hold his hand and say, "I do, again"

Tomorrow is the day I tell my girls they were what made our love a family.

Tomorrow is the day my family gets married.

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. -Matthew 19:6

I have always told my girls they were my gifts. Julia was our Christmas gift, born a few days after Christmas. Anna was my birthday gift, born a few days after my birthday. Emma was Dan's birthday gift, born a few days after his birthday.

Looking for a quote for tomorrow's little "moment", I found this. This is what I will tell my girls, "You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them." ~Desmond Tutu

They are indeed our gifts.

You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back.

I think this is mine for Dan...
