Sitting at Starbucks tonight having tea with a friend, I was having a hard time believing that it is really the 27th of April. How many times in SEATTLE does snow fall on April 27??? Yes, I was watching snow fall. I can’t believe it. I’m tired of being cold and wet!!
25 years ago today, a very young man asked an even younger girl to marry him. She said yes, and they started planning a wedding. Just over 4 months later, they said their “I do” and began a new life together. Now he’s old and she’s not quite as young, and while they don’t specifically celebrate the date of their engagement, it is a day of celebration in their home.
You see, on April 27, 1989, the third anniversary of their engagement, a baby boy was born to them. Weighing in at over 9 pounds, he was everything they dreamed of. That baby boy grew and grew (and GREW!) to become a wonderful young man. Brent, we are so proud of you!! We wish you a very happy birthday, and a year filled with unexpected blessings. May it be a much happier year than the past one. :)
