My daughter is getting married.
Oh. Oh. Oh.
She who was born bright of eye and wise of soul has found a companion who shares the light and the deep of it all and this, this is momentous.
She will cleave to another. While it has been years since she last shared home with me her home will now be established around the nucleus of the heart they share and tend.
What courage it takes to love, to say “yes”, to open to learning life in the company of another.
They have that courage, do Leah and Terin.
We who love them will bask in the power of what it is they become in each other’s keeping. They are good together. The shine and ground of their love is blessing to creation.
And this mother, this mother is feeling the cellular surrender that began at Leah’s birth. It has long been such wonder to behold the world through her being.
Now I add another to my heart and apprentice myself to learning life through him and my daughter is getting married.
