Walking Her Down The Aisle

A while ago, Kelvin and I attended a wedding. It was lovely. I love weddings.
The bride's father's speech went something like this: (Paraphrasing here)...

"When J was born, my wife asked if I wanted a boy or a girl. As a man, most would think that I wanted a boy. But I didnt. I wanted a girl. When my wife asked why, I explained that on the day of my daughter's wedding, I couldnt wait to be the man who got to walk her proudly down the aisle. I considered it an honour and a priviledge to have daughter that I could walk down the aisle."

I listened to this and my heart melted. I felt my husband reach for my hand and when I turned to look at him, his eyes were filled with tears.

He'll never get to do that.


  1. It is these "little things" that most people don't really think about when it comes to our losses. But we think about them. Our husbands think about them. We didn't just lose our babies. So, so much more.

  2. Exactly what Sally said. Now Max is here I'm sure people don't really understand that what we've lost goes on and on in so many different ways.

  3. ((Hugs)) It tears me up just thinking about it.
