Without a doubt, the last couple of years have been a whirlwind, with my oldest son Kevin and Renee's wedding last year in January, and my daughter Chrystal and Dave's wedding, just this past June.
Today, however, I just want to to say how sweet my Daughter-in-law Renee is, and that by showing just the simplest little act of kindness she filled my heart with happiness. Last night, we were talking about how chapped our lips have been lately; I mentioned that I had even caught myself biting my lips. Shortly after returning to pick up Ben, and exchanging hugs n kisses, we said our good nights, when Kevin rang the doorbell (the kids never ring the bell but we had already locked up for the night) again and handed me a little package of Chap Stick, he said Renee wanted me to have it. I was so touched and blew her a kiss, and thought how blessed we are, that Kevin picked out such a nice girl to call our ~ Daughter-in-law.
My daughter Chrystal, met Dave, while attending Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, their freshman year. Focusing on school they set aside their fondness for one another and became best friends. They didn't start "dating" until their senior year. (I know *smile*) Nothing touched my heart more than the day we got "the call" (due to living in another state) from Dave,... and he didn't just want to talk to my hubby alone, but rather, asked to speak with both of us on speakerphone. Yes, Dave asked for "our permission" to have our daughter Chrystal's hand in marriage; it meant the world to me; I was so touched that he thought to include me, We are so blessed to be able to call Dave ~ our Son-in-law.
Had a delightful time with our little grand baby Ben, last night, and just wanted to thank everyone for their insight, as to, where to draw the line with baby proofing in a Gma's home, in my last post. You have made me feel much more comfortable in my decision to keep my knick knacks out. Woo hoo! Oh, and the white couch is out,,,had to giggle at some of your comments...lol!
Today, my wonderful single son Terrence, stopped by and to surprise me with a sandwich from Subway. We got caught up on a few things and just had a great time together. I, took the opportunity to remind him again, that two weddings in two years is e n o u g h , hehe Gee, I don't know about you but I'm feeling it. So it is just the two of us hoping someone touches your heart today.
