I should have said, it was a busy weekend. We’re getting close to my daughter’s big day so every one of us is quite busy during weekends. We had our fittings yesterday together with the bride’s maids and part of the wedding entourage.  I feel happy to see Nissa’s friends whom I haven’t seen for a couple of years. We had a good reminiscing on the days when they used to spend the night here back in their college days. How time flies! Nissa is the second in their close-knit group to be getting married.

The days remind me of the song Sunrise, Sunset. One line goes this way, “is this the little girl I carried”?  I do get emotional at times thinking of the days when I’ll no longer see her everyday because she’ll have her own family soon. We’ve been close since she was a kid. Night rituals consist of sharing stories, sleeping together in one room when hubby is not around.  Didn’t I say that there will always be a special bond between a mother and her child? I think of the days when she was just a baby, then a toddler, then being a smart kid till she graduated in college. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy for her that she finally found the right guy who’ll be by her side soon. It’s just that I could not shake off this empty-nest feeling but I am excited for the big event.

They will be having their pre-nuptial pictorial this coming Wednesday.  We kept laughing at the thought of how she would project herself on camera. I told her to think happy thoughts  and  act naturally. Easier said than done, I guess.  I assured her that nothing will change,  we’ll always be here for her.
