Title: Son’s engagement
Post by: hopon on December 03, 2017, 01:42:58 PM
Today is my son’s engagement party. I was sitting in the hair salon and the lady fixing my hair wanted to know why I looked so glum. I didn’t have the energy to tell her that on this day, I really wanted my husband to be here with us. Buts he’s not and I am about to head to a party with 200 people and I need to put a smile on my face.

Lee, I wish you could see your boy all grown up and engaged to a beautiful and kind young lady.

I love you always and I miss you so very, very much.

I’m sorry you had a sad reason to come and post, but glad you felt you could come here. 

I hope you find that you can find some joy today in the engagement of your son and future daughter-in-law.

I hope the engagement party goes/went smoothly, hopon. I get the bittersweetness of the day; he should have been there with you, for this and so many other milestones and events. Wishing you peace.
