Prom Night and fighting back tears……

by Edie Wadsworth on April 19, 2009

I cried silent tears at least half the way home from Cincinnati today.
I know it should be a fun day.
A day filled with joy.
And it would be…..if  this weren’t another ‘last’.  
So, I listened to Matt Kearney sing ‘Breathe In, Breathe Out’……
and I sighed heavy and remembered how
blessed I am to be a ‘joyous mother of children’.
(Press play to your right and you can go down that weepy road with me)
Breathe in, breathe out
Tell me all of your doubt
everybody bleeds this way, just the same

Breathe in, breathe out
Move on and break down
If everyone goes away
I will stay

We push and pull
And I fall down sometimes
I’m not letting go
You hold the other line

‘Cause there is a light
In your eyes, in your eyes

Hold on and hold tight
From out of your sight

And everything keeps moving on
Moving on

Hold on and hold tight

Make it through another night
And everyday there comes a song, with the dawn

We push and pull
And I fall down sometimes
I’m not letting go
You hold the other line

‘Cause there is a light
In your eyes
in your eyes
Yeah, there is a light
In your eyes
In your eyes.

Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out

Look left, look right
To the moon in the night
And everything under the stars
Is in your arms

‘Cause there is a light
In your eyes,
in your eyes

                    Yeah, there is a light

                        In your eyes 
                        In your eyes
Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breath out.

Okay…that is so not fair…Beautiful pictures, beautiful song and oh so beautiful and precious young ones! You make me cry Miss Edie. Wish I had been there tonight with you all. Thanks for letting me see my sweet little sister and her sweet boy on Prom night. At least I get to be there to see them all graduate! Can not wait!

Love the pictures, love the song, your kids are so gorgeous and so is Taylors girl friend. I’m tearing up for you sista! Life is so precious, and they grow up way too fast.

Great great post! Thanks for sharing with us! Beautiful pictures, beautiful family, good times.

I was really liking the picture of your two big kids kissing you on either cheek and thinking how sweet Taylor is…then I saw him kiss “the other” girl and thought “HEY!!”……times they are a changing….is this one more thing I have to prepare for? I have four sons! What if one of them decides to kiss a pretty girl on the cheek. They wouldn’t!!

OK. I’m over the shock that sons grow up and came back to tell you that Caiti is beautiful! Your kids seem like so much FUN!!! Where would they have learned that?

Bless your heart! Mine are only 6 & 4, and already I have times of panic that one day they'll be grown.

The pictures (and your children) are beautiful.

Edie–So, so sweet! I feel your sentimental pain! In a few short years, I will be where you are now. My oldest son is going to middle school in the fall!! He will be 12 in September and I am so nervous. We are starting down a different path and I hope he goes down the correct one! I know many changes are ahead! I have two girls–ages 6 and 4 and a new baby boy–7 weeks today! I love your blog and I thank you for all you share! I have established my blog page, but I am very nervous about starting! Looking forward to your next post!

Jenn R–from the hills of
West Virginia!
