Ordinary Moment? Hardly.

My only daughter and my baby of three siblings walked into the den Saturday night, hands clasped behind her back, and said, "I've got something to tell you." A grin played on my lips because I knew what was coming. The glow on her face gave it away. She held out her left hand and said, "Todd proposed tonight and I said yes." Ordinary moment? Hardly. Surreal? You bet. Sacred? Absolutely.

They grow up way too fast.
(The announcement "Congratulations Todd & Marynan" was posted on the sign at Chick-fil-a.)
