It's Official! She said YES!! Oh Yeah, Happy New Year

Well, for all of you that have been waiting... the wait is over. I popped the question to her at church in front of her congregation. The pastor was great and helped me out to set up the proposal near the end of the service. She was completely stunned and didn't know that she had to answer... So I said "yes, no, or maybe"...lol... Then when it dawned on her that I was proposing, she started crying and immediately said yes and hugged me to the point that I didn't think she would ever let go... When my face began to resemble the maroon shirt I was wearing, she finally allowed me to stand back up and I could breathe again. There's no set date yet as we both know that it's going to be an extended engagement. But I wanted her to know that I was in it for keeps. I am forever her big dork! And she is my world...

They girl has an eye for your potential, what can I say? It may be a long engagement, but it is still stepping into another life, another wonderful life. I've known you very badly wanted to do this, but at times I was worried you'd not do it. Fear & wanting the best for her, & doubts(though no doubt of your love) & blah blah blah. So thrilled for you both. ~Mary
