I would like to share this story of how awesome my dad is.
Last night my SO went over to my dad’s house to ask for his blessing before we get engaged. He was pretty nervous as he and my dad have never been really close (my dad is the strong silent type and a little crusty… think Spencer Tracy in ‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner’).
Anyways, after three hours he finally came home, and it went incredibly well! My dad gave his blessing and then some, and SO said he has never seen him so excited or happy about anything, and he kept going on about how happy he is to have SO in the family, how much the family loves him, etc etc. The cutest part is that later on my step-mom came home and after talking about random stuff for a while with her my dad said “Well, are you going to offer your FSIL a drink?” and she apparently started jumping up and down and screaming!
Needless to say I was both thrilled and in tears when he came home and told me about it later on. I just really wanted to share how blessed I feel right now to have such supportive parents… it definitely makes all the waiting feel worthwhile.
Thanks for listening!
**Sidenote: The other funny thing that happened was my step-mom asked SO if he was nervous at all to come talk to my dad. His respose: “I was terrified!”, and my dad just laughed. Haha!
