And a Cherry on Top!
True love has found my Twirly Swirly Girl! Her father and I begin and end our day asking each other "What's the latest?" It seems we are in a perpetual state of waiting for the next moment of romanticism to be shared. "Oh Mom, I didn't know it would be like this!"
Our daughter is one to always be thoughtful with unexpected gifts of favorites, but she is now on the receiving end of someone eager to bring a smile to her day. Organic fruits and flowers, favorite books and movies, candle lit dinners and text messages in the middle of the day. Poems written because more needs to be said. "When can I see you again?"
The sixth of seven children, Joe has five sisters and one older brother. My husband and I think breaths are being held on their end as well. A first invitation to dinner at his house, a shy young man admits to having his sister help him prepare the meal and leave before her arrival. Could anything be more sweet.
The moment to "Meet the Parents" has been discussed and rediscussed. The best impression wanting to be made. We know in our hearts this will be the last boy we will ever have to meet.
A Christmas prayer answered for our daughter who we love. Now is the time for her "When Will She Know".
