Shaina and Jonathan's wedding day has finally arrived and I am filled with such emotion and it keeps spilling out down my cheeks.  Jonathan pulled me aside and told me how he is so excited and happy he is to marry our daughter. So please remember, it is tears of pure joy and I have alot of  joy coming out of these eyes. Here is one quote that helps explain what I see when Jonathan looks at our Shaina:

"A women wishes to be loved, not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves".

Jonathan "gets" Shaina. It is an amazing thing to observe the simplest of interactions between them. Jonathan is very nurturing, respectful, loving, reassuring, kind, supportive and everything else you would wish for your daughters happiness. Today we do not lose our daughter, we gain another son and witness our daughter, giving her heart to the man she adores and loves. My heart swells with love and pride for them both.

Today will be Jonathan and Shai's special day. Jude and I plan on enjoying and savoring every special moment the day will bring. Thank you everyone for all your thoughts, wishes and love you send our way.

It really angers me when spineless individuals have to leave such negative comments, especially when it is such a happy occasion. Someone needs to "grow up" and it isn't the bride. That person needs to leave high school behind and enter the real world. Jealousy gets you no where.
