I love my daughter.
I love her spirit and her heart.
I love her kindness and her generosity.
And all of that came through last night.
She informed me at shower time that she wanted to talk after she was ready for bed.
Bedtime came and she got kind of emotional.
I wondered what was going on...did the reality of Momma's engagement hit her?
I guess it did, in a way.
Here is what she had to say...
I am really happy that you are getting married. And I really want to help with the wedding. I want to give you my money --it's less than $20--but I want to give it to you to help with the wedding. I know it's not much, but I know that every penny counts.
Oh. My. Goodness.
Be still my heart!
And then she added...
And Momma? I don't want you to give me my allowance again until after you get married so you can use that money for the wedding too.
