...that I could upload to this hotel computer...but I don't. But I couldn't resist sharing with you all that last night Royce asked me to be his wife...and I said YES....although it came out in about three syllables....ye-ee-es because I was sobbing. I am a happy ....and want to thank each of you who have been praying with me for God's will in our relationship. You have been a great source of support.
I will post pictures when I get back to Nashville....and tell you the whole story -- because it is a doosey! I have learned even more today about the lengths to which he went to make this a special event for me -- and while I couldn't love him more -- I am so touched that he has been planning this for months...and waited to my favorite day of the whole year (Kelly Darr Superstar's birthday) and Christmas Day.
Ok...friends...your job is not done. I have been a single gal for 45 years (ok...really 25 cause it would have been pretty ridiculous for me to have even thought about getting married when I was 20 because I knew very little about real life although I had HUGE book learning...some people would make great wives at 20 -- just not me. Anyway -- the point is...I need you all desparately to help me learn what I need to know to be a good wife. I have waited a long time -- and I don't really want to learn by trial and error...so please -- share with me your knowledge. If it is too personal to share here on the blog -- please call me or write me in email. I am so serious...I want to learn from each of my friends who I admire how you handle being such wonderful strong women and fabulous wives too. Consider me a sponge.
Love you all...and thanks for sharing this totally exciting time of my life with me.
