Last night was a nite of Splendor. My Son, my baby, married his fiance of 4 years. It was a joyful event even though I couldn't stop crying. Why I kept asking myself? I am so happy for them both and yet before the wedding, I go into the room where all the Groomsmen are sitting, the guys all knew Mom wanted some time with her son, so they all left us alone. All I could do was hug him and hold on tight. Telling him how proud of him I am and how much I loved him. Needless to say, we were both holding on to each other and babbling in tears. I kept asking myself, why is it I am so emotional over his wedding and not my Daughters? Is it because he is and will always be the baby and Mom now feels all alone? Many thoughts run through my head. I cried when I was escorted down the isle and he cried watching me be escorted as well. I cried again when they both were standing at the alter and they both said a prayer and lit candles in memory of the Grandfathers that had passed and were not able to be with us during this Blessed event. The reception was Grand. They had reserved the entire restaurant for the packed event. Coming home with many mixed emotions, I still kept asking myself, why so many tears with no answers? This morning I wake up and realize they are on their way to their Honeymoon in Antigua and I didn't get to say goodbye. The phone rings. It was my son. They can't leave the country due to a ban and had to make alternate plans. He asks, "Mom can you come get us at the airport and I gladly do so. They have new plans to fly out today at 2:30PM and will stay at the Beverly Hills Wilshire for 2 days before going to Hawaii for their Honeymoon. I was elated to see them both as I am picking them up. But on the way to the airport, I finally realized why the emotions and tears kept flowing. Brandon took the place of my Father after he died and he is the only man in my life. Which made us so close. I was so happy to find the answer and know why it was so hard to let go. He is starting a new journey in his life with his new Bride, but still called Mom in a time of need. That put peace in my heart just knowing he could have called anyone, but he chose Mom. As I dropped them off at their home, they both told me how much they loved me and she could never replace Mom, but now I have a new Daughter. She is all I could ask for in a new daughter and now I smile.

The addition of another woman in your life will be hard at first, but then filled with joy when you watch their love grow through out the years. I have two sons and I understand the emotions you are talking about. If you weren't such a good mom, it wouldn't have the same impact so enjoy the emotions and watch another chapter unfold. I wish all of you a future of love.
