He’s engaged!!!!! My oldest proposed to his amazing girlfriend this evening and she said yes! We knew the engagement was forthcoming for sometime, but we weren’t sure when he was going to pop the question. As always, the military was going to be the biggest influence on the timing. Fortunately, he won’t be going down range anytime soon, so he didn’t have to wait anymore.
We absolutely love her!! I’m so excited to see their next chapter. They’re still at dinner, so I don’t have details on the proposal. Fortunately, I’ll be seeing them tomorrow afternoon, so I’ll get the full details then. This really changes the landscape of our holidays in a glorious way. We are all so excited for them. Did I mention that we are so excited that he’s engaged?
In honor of their engagement, here’s a beautiful poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, ‘How Do I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways’.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise …
