I picked up Ashley's dress on Tuesday afternoon. As I wrote the last check and was heading out of the store, I was really surprised at the sadness I felt! I won't get to shop for anymore wedding dresses :-) but I do get two wonderful son in laws - so that is a really great trade!
We have loved having Cooper as our son in law this past year. He and Heather bring us great joy. Now - we get to have James as our son in law also. We are so excited! James is such a great match for Ashley. He loves the Lord and he loves Ashley - we really couldn't ask for more than that.
We will enjoy hosting our last party for 350 people -- you don't get to do that often! There is really nothing like looking around a room full of people that you love - people that have invested in your child. So many people have loved Ashley and James over the years. They all have a part in celebrating the adults that they have become. The ceremony will be meaningful - especially with our dear friend, Larry Link, officiating. The food will be great - the music fun - the visiting abundant.
Two weddings . . . Two daughters . . . Two son in laws . . .
Our family is growing and it is good, indeed.
My heart overflows with thankfulness!
