Last weekend was a special one – my close cousin was getting married.
We were all dressed up to celebrate beginning of her new life.
It was not a surprise for me – they’ve been together for several years and they really love each other.
It’s about a moment in time that is forever gone.
She’s no longer a little girl; she’s a grown woman with full package of marriage responsibilities towards her partner. I guess she’s happy with that, I hope she is.
And regarding me, I could no longer visit her at her parents’ house and do sleepovers whenever I feel like doing it. She crossed the river and we’re no longer on the same side.
I know that the matrimony is a sacred event, I do not have doubt in it. I just felt incredibly sad that an era has forever finished.
Hopefully the chapter in her life that is about to unfold will be as fulfilling (if not more than that) as the one that’s left behind and in some time, pretty soon I will be ready to say – goodbye past!
