…until Mimi and Andrew’s wedding day of July 17, 2010.
We had the wonderful opportunity to meet Andrew’s family over Easter. They flew up from San Antonio, Texas, to meet us and spend time with Mimi and Andrew. We could not be more thankful for the second family God has given to Mimi. They are wonderful and we are so pleased to have them as part of our extended family.
We talked about wedding plans, laughed over stories of our children, got a little teary about sharing holidays (maybe it was only me…), and searched for the perfect place for a rehearsal dinner.
We know that God is adding to our family and beginning the process of enlarging us as our children add their spouses and children. This is a new season of life; it feels exciting and weighty. I’m adding the role of mother-in-law which necessitates learning when to step back and when to be helpful. It is something new to navigate and I want to do it with grace and in a way that brings glory to Christ.
I’ll keep you posted!
