08:55 am: Tugging the Heartstrings In Opposite Directions

Boy it's been an age since I last posted! Wow!  I won't describe the horror, the horror, that has been our household the last few weeks...just glad to be back!

Came upon two songs that seem like the opposite parts of a conversation.  They are both beautiful and both sad, and yet, somehow even better together.

I was impressed with my eldest when the first song made him cry. Even a few months ago, I don’t think he would have been mature enough to understand why it was sad. (Juss, for instance, told me “I’m not sad, Mommy!” ;-)

Dancing With Cinderella was written and performed by Steven Curtis Chapman. Just a few weeks ago, his 5-year old adopted daughter died in an accident; very sad, but from what I hear, the family is grieving without bitterness.
Kinda adds another layer to the song...

That is how I heard the song. They played it on the radio in honor of Maria Chapman. The Chapman's websites have a charity of some kind that one can donate to in her honor. We want to do that!

We must stop making each other cry this way.
; )

Is it any wonder our dads were overprotective? How do they know we're getting a Prince Charming and not a Humperdink?

Very true. Makes my dad glaring at John seem dear rather than annoying...of course, he did like John better than that other guys. ;-)

I think the realization that this was in fact "the one" made mon pere less than enthusiastic initially. Stealing Cinderella, I guess. Plus, we had a few years of college to go. Who knows what might happen? I'm sure under similar circumstances we might be a little uncertain ourselves.

However he warmed up when Steve asked for his permission to marry me and appreciated the very public on-bended-knee proposal. He sees the grand daughter everyday and is thus content with another Cinderella.

Steve and I have both come to the conclusion that it is a father's sacred duty to be somewhat threatening. No dragon, no princess.
