Yesterday I used a word I have never used before.
It was a word I prayed I would use one day.
Like, I really did pray to Jesus about using this word.
I remember praying with my son throughout the years
When I tucked him in at night or
During casual conversation in the family room and
Around the kitchen table before dinner
This word has always provoked a sense of wonder and anticipation in our boys.
She said, “yes.”
So yesterday I no longer referred to Lu as Nate’s girlfriend
Around 4pm during a very serious meeting in Raleigh, the Hubs and I spoke about a very happy moment as we were talking about a very sad one
Then these words flew out like a butterfly in the sky,
“my son’s fiancée.”
The air in the room grew lighter for an instant
A fresh and joyful moment, most welcome and healing to my soul
Their love story is such an adventure, your heart will smile as well
That incredible day, the one we have prayed about for so many years has finally arrived
My son has a fiancée, I have a future daughter-in-love!
