As my children entered their late 20’s and early 30’s, conversation with mom always touched upon their marital status. More than anything, mom wanted to see her grand kids married and wanted a great grandchild (her granddog Charlie didn’t count!).
Well, mom lived long enough to see one of her granddaughters get engaged but not long enough to see her get married. Now, her first grandchild and first grandson got engaged Christmas Eve.
I know she is smiling down at us and will do the same at his wedding.
