A Bride and A Mother

A bride picks out the most beautiful dress in white. A mother grabs the first clean thing she sees in the basket.

 The bride takes great care in her flower arrangements, the most beautiful she seen. The mother takes the bouquet of weeds and dandelions from her child, and  its most beautiful she‘s seen. 

The bride listens to the beautiful melodies of love, all about her future life. The mother listens to songs about Barney, OK the bride has us on that one. 

The bride has so much to prepare before her big day is here, and over so soon. But each day, a mother arises and the big day begins and she’s blessed for the rest of her life.
