Last night we attended a rehearsal dinner for a wedding my husband officiated this morning. Is it just me or do all mothers get choked up during the "this is your life" slide show presentation? I don't sob for the couple getting married, I generally don't know them that well, I usually boo-hoo thinking about the 2 rehearsal dinners we'll have to attend in the not-so-far-off future! When I see pictures of the bride and groom at ages 2, 6 or 12 all I can think of is "that's going to be my baby one day!" Those presentations really make me catch my breath & realize how fleeting these everyday moments are. To quote the grooms dad after watching the video - his life had flashed by him in "18 minutes" - I'm afraid that's how long it's going to seem when it's all said & done with - 18 minutes...there I go again, tearing up!
