Not another wedding story! Yes. I only have one kid so this kind of took a lot of our attention. We left Dallas yesterday – pretty early. Didn’t expect to see the couple again so off we drove – until a couple hours out, Calvin texted and wanted to hug his mother good bye. No delay was too long for that.
I calculated where they were – where they were headed – where we were – best place to meet without too significant a loss of time.
Paris. We could go to Paris. The city of lights – love – mystery … or a small farm town in northeast Texas. Yep, the second one. Detour, and a long wait at Starbucks (if there is a Starbucks, Lisa will find it.)
But no delay was too long – it was worth it. Some bonding time. Some exchange of convo, she signed my rock I took from the venue (oh yes I did – and it was the first time she ever signed her new name as one officially owning that new name) … and final hugs for this trip.
It was worth it. For before that woman came in, took him away, and danced with our son – before then, he danced with his mother long before her. They danced to Barney, to Power Rangers, and more. Then at the wedding, they danced again – to Beyoncé this time. Halo – for she was and is his angel. He even got her a halo to wear.
She danced with him first. And will gladly yield to his new dance partner. But she is always willing to dance anytime with her greatest joy.
I encourage you to read the words from her own heart – with a special spiritual challenge included.
Thank you for anxiously awaiting the posting of this blog! I am sure you were counting the hours to find out the outcome of the wedding of the century! The ceremony beyo …
Nope gonna make you go to her blog to read it. Enjoy
