|Shaun caught the Big Red Fish|
And then a moment occurs, that's bigger than the Fish, or the story.
While visiting the beach at Gulf Shores, Alabama this past week my daughter, Katy, and Shaun relaxed on a balcony
with a view of the ocean; sat by the dock of the bay; and waded in the warm waters while evading the shark nearby. I received each of these stories through texting and pictures. But my favorite was this story.
"Mom, we were sitting on the beach when Shaun remembered he needed something from the room. Leaving me on the beach he skipped through the sand barefoot back to the room. A little while later, I heard him kicking and laughing as he walked along behind me. Suddenly, he feel at my feet. I couldn't help but laugh. Instead of standing immediately and wiping the sand off his face, he rose to one knee and said, 'Look what I found in the sand.....
I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you Marry Me?"
The next text read, "We just need to find a wedding chapel!!!"
Congratulations, to our romantic grown up kids: Shaun Bledsoe, our soon to be son-in-law, and daughter Katy Rains.
Cheerfully, our family has been blessed with another rewarding moment in a text message. Jonya wrote, "Corey passed his bar exam." When I texted him my congratulations, his reply was simple, "I'm pumped!"
Congratulations Corey on becoming a full fledged attorney, and for the focus and determination it took to complete law school and pass the bar.
