The Dress


I wasn't with my Mom when she found the dress of her dreams. (And no, that isn't it.) When she came back to the office, she said, "I stopped at a dress shop on the way here and I found a couple that I liked."

"Tell me about them."

"Well, one of them is really pretty. It's off-white and comes off the shoulder. I really like it, but I'm afraid that it's too young for me."

"How does it make you feel?"

"Like I'm 18 again."

"I'd buy two."

Arh .. wedding dresses! It is gorgeous... but I feel that beauty should come from within the person. I tend to hide mine, but that's my personal preference. I'm sure your mum will look delisious..

You are giving her so much more than a party...or even a wedding.

It sounds like you are giving her a long forgotten dream.

I am in awe of you! I can't wait to see the beautiful bride. :)

Have a wonderful weekend, Sugar.
