My daughter isn't just my daughter.  My daughter is my inspiration.

It was the most important day of MY life.  Of course, I cherish the birth of both my son and my daughter, but it was a day that I along with family, friends, and even skilled physicians, feared that I'd never ever get to see.  My baby, Jessica, was born with a severe heart abnormality 24 years ago, and had to be flown from Southern California to Boston where immediate open heart surgery could be performed.  At the time, her prognosis was very bleak, but thanks to God and wonderful perfect hands of some of the most skilled surgeons in the world...Jessica got married on September 12, 2009...

If you all understood the magnitude of what she has been through, you'd also know that when my baby went on to become a 52 time National Dance Champion, she became an inspiration to all who know her.  Her surgeons often flew from wherever they were to watch her compete.  Her dance career is a testament to her strength, her focus and will to be alive and to be the best that she could possibly be.  She is, quite frankly, a miracle!  Her smile is all that one needs to see to understand her spirit, her soul!

I have been privileged and blessed to plan her "perfect day."  How fortunate I am that she gave me that gift!  There were times when I complained...I know...but in my heart of hearts, I was always thankful!  I know that you all know that.  I can hardly believe that her wedding day is here

Saying "Thank You" to the ladies of Project Wedding is certainly not enough.  I'd be lost if it hadn't been for all of you.  In particular I need to thank...

Marinag, Mrs.Fink2be, Kristinkay, Kristeen, Blondebunny, Smooreswifey, Rinamae, Starg8zer, Pinkgerbers, Goingtbegoff, Wmforever, Candicethetatooist, Lilivati...that's just to name a few. And of course, Dirty too!

Everyone has been fabulous!  Okay, maybe not everyone, but certainly almost everyone.  Besides, I know I can be a "Royal Pain" too!  LOL!  I am so thankful that you all allowed me to steal a piece of your joy here on PW.  Project Wedding isn't really "for" me.  It's for you.  But it has been a pleasure posting with you, chatting with you, meeting some of you, sending and receiving private messages with you...You've wowed me with your style, your ideas, your DIY's and your vendor suggestions.  there are some talented, beautiful women on project Wedding, some educated with great jobs, some not; some with enormous wedding budgets, some not; some large, some small, some young brides, some older...and a few moms to boot!

So my baby became a "Mrs."  I remember once, when she was four years old, I was driving her to pre-school one day.  She looked at me with giant, hopeful blue eyes and said, "Mama, I'm gonna be a bride someday."  That made me cry!  She, of course, didn't know why...but it was because she still had another very big open heart surgery ahead of her...a long road...and I just wasn't sure that I'd be making her wedding someday.  Looking back with years of experience I now know that God intended us to live each and every day to the fullest because none of us knows what God's plan is....So my words of wisdom to you are, "live each and every moment to it's fullest!!!!"

Congratulations to all of you and Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
