This won't mean much to most of you out there but I just have to share this and since I'm rather isolated from family and friends I choose the next best thing by reaching out to all of you.
My oldest son called me yesterday with the news that he's engaged. Now, that might not seem like a big deal but for him it's enormous. His life has been a long journey of challenges, heartbreak, tragedies, missteps and mistakes and at times I've been the only one in his corner.
I've heard it said there's no more powerful prayer than a prayer a mother has for her child and I doubt there are few mothers who have prayed harder than I but it seems as though my prayers are finally being answered.
All we can ask in this life for our children is for them to be happy and to find someone who will love them and share their lives so that they might find fulfillment.
So now I ask for all of you who read this to send a positive thought his way. He needs all the help he can get.
His name is Erick and his fiancee is Lisa.
P.S. Oh my gosh! I have a wedding quilt to make!!
