Moments of Joy

I just finished my nieces Halloween Costume. To see how it would look, I put it on my daughter. Though my daughter is smaller than her niece I got the full affect. It almost brought tears to my silly as this may seem to some I saw how grown up my daughter has become.

I am beginning to understand the significance of different dresses. Her blessing dress (or christening dress to some), her birthday dresses, her Christmas dress. I am starting to realize that these dresses mark special occasions and show her growing before my eyes.

Before I realize it she will be in her baptism dress, then her prom dresses and then her wedding gown. Dresses that mark our moments of joy. Dresses of significance.
