But I am glad for the one thing I got to do to get ready for our trip. I was able to make a card for the couple getting married. Now this couple is not just any couple. When we heard about the upcoming nuptials, to be honest, we were a little surprised. perplexed, and happy all at the same time.
You see, the couple getting married is my Father-in-law and his girlfriend. His wife passed away 10 years ago and we just got used to the idea of him puttering around by himself, doing things with friends and enjoying his retirement.
Little did we know one of those friends would become more than just a friend. I know he still misses my Mother-in-law. They were married for 47 years. We're very happy for them and excited to see this new stage of his life begin. To me it is wonderful to think of him finding love again and sharing the rest of his life with a new wife.
But we were still surprised! LOL!!
It's not often you get to make a wedding card for your Father-in-law and your future Step Mother-in-law. It is a joy though to think of the happiness they have both found in each other and I am excited for them, so is my husband. God works in some amazing ways in all of our lives.
Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Steve and Sandy Jones!
Now to look forward to some real wedding cake on Saturday.
