Rebecca's dad unashamedly admitted to being an emotional guy in his speech--his description of a young Rebecca sitting in her high chair eating cheerios reminds us how quickly time can pass. This Father of the Bride is in the same boat as us here at Mason Jar Films--we are always chatting about how the blessing of family relationships seems to blur the passage of time. That's one of the reasons we love filming your families and capturing your special life events on video.
One of my favorite quotes about the value of memories is in an often unread novel--it was said by a character to his dearest friend, “A pleasure is full grown only when it is remembered. .… when you and I met, the meeting was over very shortly, it was nothing. Now it is growing something as we remember it. But still we know very little about it. What it will be when I remember it as I lie down to die, what it makes in me all my days till then - that is the real meeting. The other is only the beginning of it. “ (by C.S. Lewis, from Out Of The Silent Planet)
Rebecca's dad reminded us that each fleeting moment in life can be enjoyed forever as we watch new moments unfold, just as his memories of his baby girl are made even sweeter by his new memories of her as a "very grown up" bride.
