She is perhaps one of the nicest, kindest, most beautiful people you will ever meet! We used to take our girls and go our for a day of shopping for school clothes together. They were both a little difficult to fit, small and thin little things. Worrying about braces, glasses, school, boys and being popular. (One more than the other!) Now they are both women one married and one soon to be. Look at our girls now, Diane!
So tonight Michelle and Shawn along with Bella and Aiden will join Jim and I and my two sisters and their two daughters for dinner, should be fun. Then tomorrow, everyone will converge on Diane's home and celebrate a rite of passage. I can't wait! It will be an intimate gathering of people, those closest to her (minus a few exceptions due to health and distance-but we understand!) and she will be showered with love. She will feel it and know that she is truly loved, by her family, by her friends, her fiance. And most of all-by God, who in His perfect timing brought Shawn and Michelle together so that they may know the love that they feel for each other now. That they may live together as husband and wife and know the joys and blessings that can bring. (The horror and pain too, but hey-gotta take the good with the bad!)
