Well, you guys really know how to make a girl cry, don’t you? (In a good way, of course.)
I have read and re-read your messages concerning my song and just when I think you all can’t say anything any nicer, you do. My songwriting heart is utterly full today.
We got a phone call from Nathan and Meagan this morning on their way home from Miami where their ship docked at 8 am. They sounded rested and happy and said the cruise was wonderful except for having to be rerouted from Mexico to the Bahamas due to a tropical storm. But when you’re young and in love, location doesn’t mean a whole lot. It was so great to hear from them and know they were safe. I know it’s a cliché, but their voices were truly music to this mama’s ears.
Sarah is staying overnight with a friend tonight so Steve and I are having a date night consisting of grilling fresh tuna that a church member gave us and watching a movie. He is currently vacuuming the entire downstairs of our house—if that’s not a prelude to a good date, I don’t know what is!
I’ll leave you with a couple miscellaneous picture from the wedding to tide you over until the next round of stories and pictures begins.
Again, thank you so very much to each of you who took the time to comment and let me know that the wedding song touched you. I’ve floated along in the glow of your kindness all day today
And now, the pictures.
Meagan danced with all THREE Mr. Smiths at the reception and was truly the belle of the ball. (Sorry about the picture quality; I had a camera issue which I’ll write about later.) But even a little blurriness can’t obscure happiness!
Mr. Smith Number One
Mr. Smith Number Two
Mr. Smith Number Three (Steve’s Dad)
May your heart find reasons to dance today.
