One year ago today, our middle son married his Preciosa. It was an extraordinarily beautiful day, and the start of an extraordinarily beautiful life.
I'm so proud of these two young newlyweds, who found each other on CatholicMatch.com--because out there in the post-college world they just weren't meeting the kind of people with whom they felt they could share their futures. They were looking for faith-filled mates who shared their love of the Catholic Church and its teachings, and who would take seriously the sacramental aspect of marriage. And what's especially refreshing in this day and age is that they wanted to put themselves 100% in God's hands, knowing that He alone is the perfect "family planner" and would send them children when they were ready. Well...
Less than two months after they recited their wedding vows, they got the joyful news that their first child was on the way. And this absolutely adorable little guy was their reward for their trust in God's will for their marriage.
A lot can sure happen in a year's time, can't it?
Happy anniversary to my sweet boy and his sweet girl. You have made a beautiful start on what I pray is a long and happy life together, and I couldn't love you more or be more proud of you.
(Now kiss that little boy's cheeks for me, and tell him Grammy can't wait to see him in a few weeks!)
