I Most Certainly Do......
Hello to each and everyone of you! Hope you enjoyed a most beautiful weekend. Oh my I cannot begin to tell you just how lovely it was here all weekend long. Clear blue skies, gentle breezes and sunshine! The clouds so puffy white, the ocean so beautiful! Spring is near, spring is near!
The beautiful bride above is my niece Tiffany (Tiffy) and her handsome groom Ryan. The two exchanged vows last month February 13th the day before Valentine's Day! What a beautiful wedding it was, not one detailed going untouched. Though we have had many weddings in our family, it was the first wedding without the presence of Dear Sweet Mother.
Tiffany and Ryan became high school sweethearts with just a little help from Mother. Preparing for her soon coming prom, Tiffany was asked by Ryan if he could be the one to escort her to the prom. Tiffy was not sure if that was what she wanted, so she called grandma.:o) Tiffy had a most special relationship with her grandmother and often called her for advice about school, dating or anything else that was on her mind. Mother was indeed the kind of Mom and Grand Mom you simply just wanted to share with. They talked about the prom and Ryan's wanting to accompany her to it. After a long conversation mother advised Tiffy to accept the date for Ryan sound like a wonderful and kind young man. The two of them enjoyed the prom with memories that will last a life time..... seven years later they became man and wife.
Mother was not present when Tiffany and Ryan exchanged vows, but I have a feeling she would have most certainly approved.:o)
Just a few days ago I shared a conversation with my sweet sister...."Mother's prayers are still being answered and will continue to be answered in all of our lives". Reminds me of the great patriarchs in the Bible who prayed but did not themselves live to see those prayers come to past, but yet those prayers were surely answered. Their presence was not a necessity, not a necessity at all.
Yesterday marked two years since Mother went to Heaven. I hold the promise near that one day and one day soon we will all see her sweet smiling face once again. Oh my what a wonderful day that will be!
Congratulations Tiffy and Ryan!!
