I wanted to introduce you to an angel that Glenn and I met while playing bingo a few months ago, her name is Karen. When we first started to play she sat right by us, or should I say we sat by her, and we would chat a little. After time went by we started looking forward to seeing her every friday and saturday morning, getting to know her a little better with every visit. Why is she an angel? you may ask. Let me introduce you and then I will explain why.
In my defense I did not take this picture, but wanted to introduce you properly all the same. She would probably have my hide if she knew I posted it... LOL! Back to why she is an angel. Yesterday morning she asked Glenn, my fiance, if she could ask him a personal question. He said, "of course". She asked when we were going to get married. Glenn was caught off gaurd and didn't know what to say and passed the buck over to me. I was just as caught off gaurd and did not ever give her an adequate answer, but what she did next still brings tears to my eyes just typing about it. She took her wedding ring off her finger and told me she wanted me to have it. I told her I could not accept it, but she would have no part of me saying no. She explained she had no living relatives. She had lost her only daughter to illness, her only son to a drunk driver and her husband a long time ago. I was so taken aback I could only swallow back the tears and say Thank You. When I told her I didn't know what to say she said Thank You was enough.
I have a 3/4 kt diamond with another 1/4 kt. of diamonds that is my engagement ring/wedding ring that Glenn and I both bought second hand that I had to have. However it does not compare to my new ring.
And the date is set for January 23rd 2011! Exactly 3 years after we officially got together! Karen will be there because she now and always will have a family... Glenn and I.
Thanks for sharing this special time with me. I couldn't be happier and feel more blessed to have Glenn and Karen, our angel, in my life!
