|Our family tree - a gift from my son and daughter-in-law|
Last weekend was filled with joyful celebration. We traveled to Auburn, Alabama to attend my son's wedding. My husband and I were so happy to welcome a very beautiful, caring, smart and talented "daughter" into our family and we were touched by the family and friends (both ours and my daughter-in-law's) who made the trip to witness the beginning of Matt and Amanda's new life together.
In 2008, a few weeks after my surgery for a recurrence, two very good friends gave me an Operation Bling Foundation necklace. During the past few years I took it out often and looked at it and thought about the support my friends provided and smiled. But it never seemed the right time to wear it. The right time was on Saturday when I was there for a milestone in my son's life.
I know I've written this many times before on this blog but back in 2005 I did not think I would see my son graduate college, get his Master's degree or marry. But there I was sitting in the front row with my grandson on my lap watching him and his wife say their vows. Holding back tears. Feeling very blessed.
Every Day is a Blessing! Blessed to have Amanda as part of our family.
