A Walk in the Park – Wednesday December 5, 2007

Uncategorized

A week ago Duane and I went out for a normal date (so I thought).  Go to a park to see the Christmas lights, then to Starbucks to warm up.  We were walking through the park, when we came across this bench.

We sat on the bench, we talked, he got down on his knee, I said yes!  And the hugely large sycamore tree got to witness it all.  We will remember that bench for the rest of our lives and hopefully the tree will live on so we can always know which is “our bench”.

Then there were fireworks in our honor.  Oh wait, I think that was a shaky photographer.  It was amazing how even strangers were excited for us.  We told everyone in the park.  O.k. thats a little false.  But it felt like everyone should know and that the whole world would rejoice.

    I am one lucky guy.  I am one happy guy.  I am fixing to be one married guy.  Strange thought… yet exciting because of who said, “Yes.”
