Our Cinderella...

Last weekend my daughter and husband were in a wedding. The bride use to be in Kevin's youth group and she and Kayla always have had a special friendship. Kevin served as the main minister in the wedding, while Kayla was a junior bridesmaid. Kayla felt so special, yet she was so nervous! There was a lot of planning that went into being a junior bridesmaid!!! The dress, getting the dress fitted, the shoes, getting the shoes dyed the same color as the dress, finding someone to do her hair, etc... I got to thinking, "WOW!" this is a lot of work for just a young girl...what am I going to do when she is in high school going to the prom, or better yet, when she is the bride??? They grow up so fast!

The wedding turned out beautiful, but it really didn't matter. My attention was totally on my little girl, in her Cinderella moment. I had found someone to do her hair (a friend of mine) and Kayla felt pretty. She glowed that day, and my heart was bursting with pride.

As I looked back at all the pictures I had taken, all I could think of was that Steven Curtis Chapman song "Cinderella."

"So I will dance with Cinderella, while she is in my arms
'cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella, I don't want to miss even one song
'Cause the clock will strike midnight and she'll be gone."

This is Kevin's favorite picture... I love her smile!

The Hair... Kayla squealed in delight when she first saw it.
