In honor of this wonderful Valentines Day, in midst of a long New England winter, I had to dig out this photo. This is how my husband, Grant, proposed to me over twelve years ago. These were the good old days when it was all about us! Yep. That was pretty romantic and clever. Guess where he put the ring? It was dangling on a string from the outdoor thermometer of course. I just remember being in shock. I was very, very surprised.
Fast forward twelve years later and the picture is quite different. We all went to mass today and a nice couple spoke about a Catholic retreat for married couples. On the way home, I asked Grant if he would ever go with me to something like that. He smiled and lovingly said, "Do you think you could find someone else to go with you?" And then he laughed the hardest he's laughed in a long time. "Aw, I'm kidding. I'll look into it," he said. Ha! I won't hold my breath, I thought.
