About that dance.....


After a very tough morning {mourning} on Friday we put on our best and pulled ourselves together. Our beloved fur baby was hit by a car very early Friday. I still cant really talk about it yet ..but I will one day. We were there for each other and we made it through the day and into the night..




We watched how fast our kids had grown and felt blessed..



We watched how we can love on one another and be there in times of need without anyone ever knowing how our hearts were broken..



We witnessed love....

Some of us even dreamed about it...




We held hands...and loved deeper...Boy! I love that man~



We had a good time....



AND THEN.... he did it! What I had wished for all evening. He asked me to dance!



After all of these years he still gets to me...



I wont tell you how much I enjoyed that dance because I think my face says it all,No?



After a day and night filled full of emotion and love, We woke...and what better way to start our day... we ate wedding cake!

    Having lost a much loved pet the same way a few months ago I can certainly imagine how heartbreaking it was for you. I'm so sorry your family had to go thru this. It's just so sad, my heart goes out to you all.

    We celebrated our 23rd anniversary this weekend and I can tell you it didn't include dancing! Lucky girl! You guys look as happy as we are, how sweet to see y'all dancing. *smiles*

  42. Susie, we also lost our neighborhood cat on Friday who was mauled by a loose pitbull. The police are still trying to find the dog. So sorry about your furry loved one---they become so much a part of us--my Max was 18 years old, indoor Tabby and I still miss him. My hubby can't dance, but we do dance when we attend weddings and even sometimes in the kitchen or living room and we don't need music. I hope ya'll didn't get too much rain for the wedding. {{Huge Hugs}}Pat
