At the time I did not think much about the fact that you did not ask me to come when you went wedding dress shopping. You went with your best friend.
It is only since I sometimes watch those shows about brides in the shops choosing theirs and their mum being there with tears in their eyes because they see how beautiful their daughter is, that I am sad about me not being there when you were out buying your dress.
You now have a daughter yourself, who at 8 told me that I can come when she chooses her wedding dress.
I have no doubt that she will want you there too. That will save you the sadness that you could not anticipate by me not being there.
