A sunny, bright day filled with love and laughter - what a way to start the journey!
To see your child getting married must be one of the biggest blessings one can experience as a parent. Yesterday that blessing belonged to me. Sitting in the little church next to the sea with my fingers intertwined with my husband's, just as it was 26 years ago when our little Melissa arrived in this world, I knew that everything is exactly as it should be.
I asked for God's favour, and we received it. My little girl has started the next phase of her life. Her own camino. Hand in hand with a husband who adores her and a desire to live a life rooted in God's word.
I have a massive 'mother-of-the-bride's-new-shoes' blister on my foot but tonight I will sleep well!
