I couldn't be happier and this is why.......
You see, my youngest son is home from Afghanistan for 15 days of R & R and on his second day back home, he surprised his girlfriend of 8 years. It was her 22nd birthday, she had no idea he was home on R & R. Once she recovered from that surprise, surrounded by family and friends, he got down on one knee and proposed!!! He actually waited until we were finished with dinner before he did the proposing. We figured if he proposed before dinner, she wouldn't be able to eat!
Now, my family and I have had a tremendous amount of sadness over the last 6 months (I'll post about that later) and it's nice to know that there is still joy to be had in this world.
I really couldn't be happier!
I love her like I love my only daughter!
My son couldn't envision his life without her. His deployment made that very clear for him!
Kale and Kacey.....I love you both very much and my hope for you both is nothing less than a lifetime of happiness!
