A Letter to My Future Son In Law



Dear Future Son In Law,

She's almost five now and I get excited thinking about the kind of story you two will share one day.  I imagine the moments when she'll come home and she'll be all googly eyed for you and tell me all the grand feelings she'll have for you.  It is one of my favorite parts of being a mama to girls.

But I really want you to know something...

The day we give her away to you, we will give you the biggest parts of our lives.  We will hand you the first moments we held her.  We will hand you the cries and cuddles, the giggles and all the emotional roller coasters we'll have gone through.  We'll hand you every piece of her, because on that day, she will be yours.  All yours.

We may not like you at first, well, daddy may not like you at first, and it may be rough awkward times, and I'll give you a piece of advice now, hold tight, don't waiver, stick around, and he'll come around.  Because you have to understand, you aren't just getting his daughter, YOU WILL BE GETTING WHAT HE WAS MADE FOR.

I pray now that you'll grow into a gentleman that understands that her heart is our heart.  Her face, her hands, her hair, and those big brown eyes are everything we lived to protect, nurture, and raise to be the beauty you'll fall in love with.  We have staked our entire lives on investing all that we have into raising her so that she'll be the woman you want to raise kids with, the wife you look forward to coming home to, and the woman you spend the rest of your life being loved on by.

Currently, she's excited to meet you.  We pray at night that you are nice to her and other people, that you have a beard like daddy, and have lots of hair on top of your head.  Sometimes, she'll pretend you two are already married and she'll prance around the house in my high heels and tease her daddy that you two got married without his blessing.  She's currently named you Billy Jerry, so we'll see how that goes.

She's excited.  And I'm excited.

Because when we hand her to you, we are not only fully stepping back and giving you our little girl, but we're also asking you to be a part of us.  I'm excited for the times your father in law will stand out in the driveway and chat with you for hours.  I'm excited for the first time we'll hug you and congratulate you on our grand-baby.  I'm excited for the family gatherings and all the memories we'll make once you're in our lives.

Because you falling for her, means you're her family now and you become ours.  And I promise, that while we prune her for the years ahead, we'll be pruning ourselves for fully letting go and letting you in.  I promise you that.

So, future son in law, I've got you deep in my heart as I pray for my daughter and as I give of myself each day, because I know our time with her is limited and one day she'll be yours.

In Jesus Name I rest my trust for the two of you.

Love,
You're future mother in law
(P.S. I promise that name will be a pleasant one you speak)

  9. I believe avoiding packaged foods may be the first step for you to lose weight. They might taste fine, but ready-made foods have got very little vitamins and minerals, making you take in more just to have enough strength to get with the day. If you are constantly eating these foods, changing to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more strength while ingesting less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.
