AH! I’m ELATED!!! He’s good, took me by surprise!!!
It was a perfect proposal for us!
Sunday morning and I had gotten up early to get ready to teach my Sunday School class. As I was just finishing up drying my hair I was getting texts from my girls saying none of them were coming because they were just leaving relay for life. A good excuse, but I was frustrated none the less.
My Fiance <–AH so exciting to say!! Was laying in bed. I threw my sweats back on and told him to scoot because I was coming back to bed. I closed my eyes for only a few minutes and when I opened them he was not in the bed. I could hear him fumbling around in the kitchen. I just stayed in bed with my eyes closed. He came back in and laid next to me. I apologized for being so sleepy and told him I’d get up with him soon I just needed a few minutes to rest my eyes. He babied me and assured me, “no, no rush, you rest!” and we cuddled up. He was playing with my hair and singing to me. He has an amazing voice and this is something I often ask him to do for me when I can’t sleep. But this time was unprompted.
I was so content and mellow, just being in his arms, having my hair played with and being sung to. My eyes were closed but I kept opening them every now and again to smile at him. One time when I opened my eyes, he was holding a box with a ring in it!
It took me a minute to understand what was going on, and once I did, he said some sweet things and asked me to Marry him.
I said yes! yes! 1000 times yes! And we spent the entire day together.
I am thrilled! Over the moon! Cloud 9!! Whatever you want to call it! I am soooo happy!
Can’t wait to spend more time here! 🙂
