This evening I went to a second bridal shower for Jessa. On the way home as I drove with all the gifts I blinked away more tears. Ian gets married in just a few days. It's coming so fast. He just barely got home again.
Why do these sons of mine leave together? Seth and Ian both went away to BYU last August. They both came home from BYU just a few days ago. Today I saw evidence that reminded me that I will close my eyes very, very soon and with the tears I try to blink away...they'll be gone again.
So I guess there are tears all the way around... I will just do the best I can and be grateful for the blessing of a beautiful and amazing daughter-in-law to be and a well-prepared, faithful missionary to be. People tell me it's the way it should be.
I'll just buy extra kleenex to get me through just in case.
Ian and Seth
