I Am Happy

Yesterday, we surprised my mother, and it was wonderful, more wonderful than you can imagine. I'd planned to write about it tonight.

But tonight, we got word that my wonderful son Andy had proposed to his lady love Erin, and that she'd accepted.

Now I don't know which to write about first.

There are so many different happinesses in the world, aren't there?

I was so glad when I remembered that I had this photo. It seemed to say everything eloquent that I couldn't tonight.

Yes, it's the perfect photo to accompany this very moment in time and all the joy it brings.

Congratulations to Andy & Erin, and to the happy in-laws-to-be!

That's such wonderful news - and the perfect picture. I love the way it shows so powerfully the connection betwen grandchild and grandmother, gazing into each others' eyes.

(And the fact that you're catching the chance for five minutes' shuteye. Hah. Remember that phase...)

That's one of the reasons I love that picture, too; I'm glad it shows to others.

And dear lord, was I tired! My mother came down and stayed with us for three months - and we never had an argument, all three adults got along beautifully, despite living in a tiny apartment with a finicky newborn, and she helped me so much when I was a panicky mother of said newborn. She really is one of my two best friends in the world (the other being my Best Beloved.)
