She said Yes!

My daughter was engaged a few weeks ago! My baby! Good grief! I am so happy for you Nicole. It seems like yesterday you were born, now so many years have passed and you are all grown up and soon to be a married woman. I am so very proud of you. You are such a good person, a good heart, you love Jesus and I am so very proud to be your mother!
When your boyfriend called and asked could he ask me a question, I thought he wanted to talk about what to get you for Valentine's Day! Then he said "May I have permission to marry your daughter?" It is a day I will never forget! I cried! It was so hard not to tell you about that telephone call!! I love you and I am so happy for you! God is so good!!
Love the Mother of the soon to be Bride!

p.s. to all my blogging buddies: Nicole's fiance is now active duty in Kuwait until December but he may come back in July for a quick wedding. We do not have the details yet but I will keep you posted!
