I took a week to let the fairy dust settle after my daughter's wedding last weekend. What a perfect day it was! There wasn't a glitch in the hitch. God was faithful down to the most minute detail! The newlyweds headed into Northern California for their honeymoon, and I was left to sort through the myriad of maternal emotions.
I remember well the overpowering feelings I experienced when I held Briana for the first time. All the excitement and preparation building to that moment could not possibly compare to the rush of love and the weight of responsibility that I felt. Likewise, after living with Briana for over 21 years, letting go also released a complexity of emotions, including the need to rearrange my nest.
