Joy Comes In the Morning

Congratulations are in order BIG TIME for my two-years-older sister, Susan, and her lover-boy, Rodger, who live in the Chicago area. She called me this afternoon to say they have just gotten engaged to be married on October 15, 2005.

Yes, Virginia, there is a GOD!

Susan has been single for 23+ years. She has a lovely grown daughter and 3 gorgeous granddaughters. She has been a business woman all her life, sometimes holding down more than one job, to make ends meet. She's had her share of ups and downs but has remained hugely upbeat throughout her life. After years of being alone, she really had assumed she'd be single the rest of her life, and was okay with that.

Then Magic happened. The heavens opened their storehouse and showered her with this incredible man, worth every minute of waiting. We, the Sibs, met him in May at our Hart Family Cottage confab and totally approved!

Susan and Rodger, I lift my glass to you and say, "I love you!" God willing and the creek don't rise, nothing will keep us from your grand celebration.

Tears may flow in the night,
but joy comes in the morning
. - Psalm 30:5.
