A New Adventure

So, my daughter gets married next Saturday morning at 11am. 27th August 2022.

I’m not sure how I feel. I’m proud, sad, excited, anxious, happy, restless, tearful, nostalgic and I have an overwhelming sense of love and melancholy. It’s strange but comforting, if you know what I mean!!

The moment my daughter Becky was born, I felt protective and vulnerable because I had never experienced a love that was all consuming. Like a bolt of lightning, I loved in a way that I have never understood.

3 minutes after beck was born, I held her, lifted her up to my face and kissed her. I breathed her in, brushed my lips and nose over her delicate little face and cried. She responded by latching onto my nose with her mouth and suckled for all she was worth. I would have died for her at that moment. I would die for her now.

She’ll always be my little girl. I’m so happy for her πŸ’“ πŸ’—

    1. Very big day mate. Beck and Dave (Groom) don’t want any speeches. They’re not traditional. In theory It’s, It’s going to be a very relaxed wedding. I’m gonna say a few words anyway and raise a glass.

      1. Yes, it is. When it happened to me I was kind of unconscious. Next day after wedding I almost did not remember all the details and asked my wife to tell what was going on. By that day I was like in dream.
