be moving here soon. They have been dating and knowing each other for years and he just came and spent another week here. It looks like this will soon be a wedding celebration as they are both looking forward to their future together.He is working with a company that allows him to transfer here so it looks like it wont be too long and the wedding bells will be ringing. She is finishing up college and he is well established with his trade and company.How did you feel when the last single child got married?

I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to feel when the first child starts dating!

This would be my baby and the last child to marry. I am glad that she is finishing college first. He is a great guy and they treat each other so nice , like they are made for each other.

I am sure you must be at the top of the world, knowing your last child will be settled soon and that too to a good man. My heartiest congratulations to all of you. It is the greatest worry of a mother to find the right partner for their kids or that they do so themselves, so it must be a wonderful feeling. May God grant them lots of love and understanding in their new life together. Amen.

Well, its alot quieter after the kids are gone. You are used to all the noise and then you have to get used to the quiet.Unless, the grandkids are here and then its wild. lol

I still have a son who is not married. I am beginning to think he will never marry but that is ok, he is happy. He got his heart broke years ago from his very special girlfriend and I think he is scared to give his heart to another. At least your daughter won't be moving away. My son's best friend met a girl here in Texas, she was a nanny here on visa from Norway and when she had to go back he worked and saved his money and went to Norway and got married. He is like a son to me and I think it is time they move to Texas for awhile now. haha

This will probably mean the possibilty of another grandchild within the next five years or so . I have 5 now. I am happy if they are happy and as long as they are all healthy and happy, then its a blessing!

None of my kids are married yet. They are all to young yet. Now my oldest child is seventeen and he thinks he will marry once his girlfriend and him leaves school. He just doesn't have a clue at all.

It seems as though they are grown and gone before you can blink twice. lol It goes by so fast and then before you know it, they have their own families.
