A day to remember.

Mama gasped when she entered the room. Jenny had finished my hair Baby's breath and roses where arranged prettily at the front.

"You are so beautiful!" Mama exclaimed taking her handkerchief out of her sleeve and wiping tears away from her eyes.

"Thank you Mama" I whispered choking back tears.

"Now don't you start crying...Your father wouldn't forgive me if I made you cry" Mama said, hugging me close.

"Oh Mama! everything is happening so fast"

Mama smiled at me and wiped the tears from my eyes.

"I remember this feeling but I will tell you this no matter where you are and no matter how far off I am I will always be there with you cheering you on"

Amae burst through the room a bright smile on her face.

"Rosie! It is time!" She exclaimed.

I went over to the dresser and grabbed my bonnet, after doing so we headed to the church. The whole way there Papa was quiet which was not normal for Papa he was usually the one to be bounding with excitement, but he was solemn his eyes were downcast I slipped my hand into papa's and leaned over to him.

"I will always be your daughter" I whispered putting my head on his shoulder like I had done so many times.

We then got to the church doors, Amae ran inside to tell the Priest that I had arrived, then the doors opened everything around me didn't matter in that room all I could see was John at the alter waiting for me and after what seemed like seconds were married. John's face as we faced the whole congregation as man and wife, was all aglow it was as if all of my life had been leading up to this point, and for that moment my life had been completed...
