This is the wedding day of my daughter Bimala and her fiance Jeff. I thought that the week would be more out of control, more crazy. Instead the pieces of the big jigsaw seem to be floating together – not always effortlessly, but bumping and slipping their way into place, making a picture that is both sun and shadow, light and dark.
The shadow/dark parts are the unknown places. The things that scare mommies, like how will this work? Will the baby be ok? Are they ready for primetime? Can they handle this big life-sized assignment that they have taken on? So far the answers are yes and no and maybe.
The sun parts are what we see and know and hold right now. Each other. The moment. Our best intentions. Our love. And that is enough for now.
