The last couple of weeks for our family have been full of excitement. Our oldest daughter married a great guy a little over a week ago. For those of you who know, it’s an amazing privilege for a dad to walk his little girl down the aisle. The wedding weekend was incredible – a true celebration. It couldn’t have been more perfect. The flowers, the cake, the decorations, and the music made the day. We’re grateful to so many special friends who helped to make the day a wonderful memory maker. Jo and I are blessed!
Today was an exciting day. We helped the newlyweds move into their new place. Everyone helped to load up a U-Haul full of furniture, appliances, and stuff. We caravanned for a couple of hours until we reached Lynchburg. This couple is off to a great start. What a blast to see them get settled. He starts a great job tomorrow and she begins law school in a couple of weeks. We’re proud of Katey and Zac! They’re two great young adults with an incredible future ahead.
Even though the day was exciting and all, I have to admit it was a little bit painful too. You can see by the picture. It’s kind of how the day started. Our first stop was the storage unit. Unfortunately, I fell backwards off the ramp into the truck dropping a large (heavy) wooden dresser on my leg – ouch. Even though it slowed me down a bit, I wouldn’t have missed the day. It’s the stuff parents do for kids. I can still remember my parents helping me load a Ryder truck just days after our wedding (1985) as we honeymooned to Texas for seminary. It’s kind of funny how we revisit life moments from a different perspective. I guess it’s all a part of growing older (wiser). I guess it’s the stuff we pass along.
Life is good!
