Six Pounds to Six Foot Three

This Sunday
my tiny six pound preemie
will become the six foot three
husband!

My heart is simply
swirling with emotions
of all kinds.

Joy is definitely
the largest ingredient
in the mix!

Also present are thankfulness,
wistfulness for a passing season,
and
a bit of nervousness
about my new role
in his....ahem,
THEIR
life!

May I be
the kind of mother-in-law
who knows when to step away
and close her mouth.

Hopefully I will be
an encourager and not a
nag.
Let me be a welcome guest
and not an obligation.

May I be a safe place.
A place that is trustworthy
and loyal.

I want to
"be there" for them
without
being in their way.

Hopefully I will be a
Mother-In-Love.
