More good things happening, I could get used to this, I have been a stranger to feeling happy for quite a long time.
On Saturday, my son and his lovely girlfriend got engaged. We are all so happy for them. It is quite a romantic story.
They met in high school 23 years ago and became very good friends; he has always loved her, but it was not to be and although they remained good friends, they went their separate ways romantically. Both of them, over time had several relationships, that, for one reason or another (well we DO know the reason now, don't we..even a blind man would know ) did not work out.
Over the years, in times of difficulty,bereavement and stress, they were always supportive of each other and then about this time last year, it dawned on both of them something the family had always known, they should be together.
They both love camping and so he with a friend on Friday night went into a lovely part of the bush near a stream and planted out a couple of hundred pots of petunias, spelling out "Will you marry me?"(not for him, an engagement ring in a glass of bubbly in a flash restaurant lol).....hid a bottle of champagne in a small esky in a hollow log and the next day, took her away to camp out for the night by the stream.
Lucky for him after hours of planting out those flowers that she said "yes".
The family is thrilled to bits, and again it has been another good...no, dare I say it.....a GREAT day.
