So today marks the one year that I have been engaged and can you believe I didnt even remember? Today is also my loving mother’s birthday that for only the second time in my life, I will not be able to spend with her. My mom passed away unexpectedly last May, with that being said..its still pretty tough to deal with.
My fiance and I had been dating for almost 2 years before he proposed to me. He had no idea it was my moms bday when he proposed..I feel as though the angels were covering me and my family and their way of us “facing” her birthday 2 months after her death was to have something wonderful happen on that day.
Needless to say, it was bittersweet, but it was everything I needed.
Although I remember today is my moms birthday I totally didnt even think about my engagment anniversary until I rec’d a text asking if I wanted to go out to dinner for our anniversary tonight. My first thought was…I met you in Nov, we started dating officially in Jan and we don’t get married until Oct….what anniversary?! But then it dawned on me.
So again, a year later on this special day, the man that I am going to marry surprises me, but this time, by actually remembering something that I surely forgot about. I ♥ me some him.
ps. To all the nagging brides that constantly post about quarrels with their mothers about their weddings…pick and choose your battles. There are times like this that some one like me wishes her mom could be here. This is the most important time in any girls life and no girl should have to get married with out her mother. Be grateful and don’t block your blessings.
