It was like any other day, I was sipping a Vanilla Chai Latte as I helped my twelve year old with her homework. As usual, homework led to bunny trails. Today, as her facial expression changed, I listened expecting to hear about today’s middle school lunchroom drama. And just when you think you have them figured out, a totally new conversation. This was a fun one! I couldn’t help, but smile as she told me about her dream wedding!
I will wear a white poofy tulle skirt and my pointe shoes.
I will walk down the aisle with my feet flat and when we kiss,
I will rise to my toes and bend one of my legs up like this…
It seems like just yesterday I was that little girl dreaming about her wedding day! And when that day finally came, it was completely surreal!!! The closing of one chapter and the beginning of a journey that wasn’t yet scripted! These first fifteen years have passed so quickly!!! We have been employed by FIVE different pharma companies, lived in FOUR beautiful houses, given birth to THREE precious children, buried TWO extraordinary family members, and depended fully on ONE amazing Heavenly Father.
I pray that when the day arrives for my beautiful baby girl to begin her next chapter of life – at the end of the aisle awaiting her will be a man of strong faith, an unwavering loyalty, a gentle heart, and a contagious smile – just like her daddy!
A man that finds great joy in serving her treats on all the special days and all the ordinary days, too! Stud recently found a very fun treat for me — International Delight now has Chai Tea Lattes with fragrant notes of cinnamon, clove and ginger blended with real black tea, available in Vanilla and Caramel! Found near the creamers at my local grocery store.
There are few things I enjoy more than a pretty anthropologie tea cup filled with Chai Latte! – Thanks Stud!!!
