Eve of the Big Event

The wedding is tomorrow. And the stress level on the eve of a young lady's big day can be almost too much for her to bear. Sadly, I have to report, at the rehearsal this evening the effects of the pressure were showing. For the most part she managed to hold back her tears, but then came that moment when she just couldn't take it anymore, and she cried out (to no one in particular), "Help me!"

And it really didn't help that everyone laughed uproariously at her sorrowful plea. But then ... there's just no way we could keep a straight face when this two-year-old (who'd been rolling on the stage between the legs of the bride and groom) begged for mercy as Mom carried her to the back of the church.

Weddings are way overrated ... well, at least they are from the flower girl's perspective.

You had me going again. But hey, she has a big responsibility. Even little women sense the stress. Would you post a picture of your little darlin' on her fancy day. She's sure to be the bell of the ball - I know my grandbabe would be!! Have a great time and God's blessings on the newlyweds.

Mrs JP--
We don't have any pictures yet, but even if I did I'm not sure her parents want her face splashed in the Internet.

She really brought the house down.
