My Petal

Friday nights are family nights at my home when  I dont have to go in to work that is…the three of us snuggle up together and we watch a movie of my daughters choosing…snack on popcorn or ice cream and just hang out together….as a family…

This past Friday….I sat and cried after the movie…my daughter had chosen “Bridge to Terabithia” and I cry every time…so as I sat surrounded in tissues…he left the room only to return to bend on one knee….holding a long stemmed red rose….speaking to me of beginnings and never endings…calling me his everything…his petal…and so…

Friday…February 19th…I officially became engaged…

I never thought I would say those words….now if I dont throw up and can say I do…lol

Stay tuned…

  1. The first time I saw that movie – my son warned me “Mom – you’ll cry’ and he refused to watch it with the rest of the kids.

    I didn’t just cry – I was sobbing…

    Without spoiling the movie for someone who might read this, I have never forgotten it. (I won’t watch it again without a box of tissues handy, but it was ‘life’ the way it can sometimes be – bitter and sweet at the same time.)

    You are engaged!!!!!!

    That is wonderful!

    And – what a way to do it!!!!

    You won’t throw up until after dear – trust me on this one, your nerves will hold.

    Congratulations – I wish you all the absolute best.

    Be well,

  12. Congrats on your engagement, summerrain63. How exciting!!!!

    I absolutely love that movie, but cry, no, SOB, every time that my daughter watches it. We also love the snuggle on the couch to watch a movie and snack kind of night. It totally rocks!
