How do you say thank you to someone who has filled your heart with joy?
How do you say thank you to someone who loves your daughter unconditionally?
How do you say thank you to someone who has fathered three of your grandgirls?
How do you say thank you to someone who is an outstanding role model to young minds?
How do you say thank you to someone who loves Orioles baseball?
Well, let's try this...
God blessed me with two sons, I carried under my heart. My daughter met an amazing man; a man who has loved, supported and tried his best to understand my daughter. A man who gave me a glass of water when I was thirsty. A man who wrote love messages in primer on the nursery walls of his first daughter (my first grandgirl) with me! (yes, we covered them with paint). A man who actually entertained the idea of writing Led Zeppelin lyrics as a border for above mentioned nursery (There's a Lady Who's Sure, All That Glitters is Gold, and She's Buying a Stairway to Heaven). Have I mentioned their first dance at their wedding was "Thank You" by Led Zeppelin? Are you feeling the love for my S-I-L???
I remember their wedding day well...I gave my daughter away to this man. Just moments before placing my daughter's hand in his...I whispered in his ear. I hope he forever knows I gave him one of my most precious gifts in this world. I gave him my daughter...to love, to care for, to respect, to share the rest of their days....
He has lived his promise, and I thank him.
God's plan was that I bring my two sons into this world. It was also God's plan that my daughters marry, so that I could love two more sons.
Kick back and enjoy a little bit of Led Zeppelin...the first dance of my daughter and my S-I-L. May I add, I was one of the few who truly appreciated the beauty of this song as their first wedding dance?
Happy Birthday,J...I thank you!
p.s. Momma loves you!
