A Glimpse Into The Future



Yesterday I saw a moment. A small window into my future.
And I won't lie, it made my eyes well up - just as it is now, talking about it.

We had pictures for 1st Holy Communion.
She put on her beautiful dress, the one that makes her look like a mini-bride. She slid on her nylons and her shoes. She put on her pearls - which are only a few now - but as each year passes, another is added. And lastly the veil. She was stunning.



And I couldn't help but think.... that in 15, 20 years... I can't even write it.
I can't imagine a day when I don't see that face every day.

Beautiful. She's stunning. But of course she would, she looks just like you...

Don't think about that 15 or 20 years into the future quite yet. You've got time.

Absolutely a lovely young lady and a beautiful post from a lovely mom! The years pass too quickly. I blinked and my daughter is going to turn 8 in June.

I can get choked up just thinking about my boys having a girlfriend someday. Getting married.....? Forget about it!

She is a perfect little mini-bride, and you have a L O N G way to go until the big bride days.
She is gorgeous.

I have a 3 year old daughter, and we're Catholic, so that First Communion will be coming up, and that picture of your beautiful daughter made ME tear up.....she looked absolutely gorgeous. And your cake was awesome too (I do decorated cakes also).
