Thoughts from the mother of the bride


Flannery is beaming! Look at that smile! Aw. Mike is teary-eyed. Good. What beautiful vows! They’re both so eloquent. I’m so happy! Look at them! They love each other so much! Look at his sisters. How lucky she is to marry into a family that adores and appreciates her. Ditto him. Declan looks so handsome. Great smooch! That’s the way to seal the deal!
I have a son-in-law! I’m a mother-in-law! I need a mug. Why am I crying? I’m so happy! Everyone seems to be having the best time! Hooray! It’s so pretty! The flowers! The antiques! And it’s such a gorgeous evening. Oh, food! Yummy! They’re here! They’re so beautiful. My heart is overflowing. Speech time! I hope people cry. I’m crying, and they should, too! How lucky she is to have such a daddy. Is that my son, leading me onto the dance floor! Oh, Declan! You’re the best! A mother-daughter dance for all of us mommies. We deserve it. All this work for a few hours. Totally worth it. My little girl found the person perfect for her. My work here is done. Time for bed.
