This is the Slurpee Stealer, also married to the Good-Looking One. She’s the newest addition to our ever-growing family!
And we like her…(reminds me of the scene in “Overboard” when the kids say, “But we like her, dad!”)…
I know it sounds cliche, but I knew the moment I met her that she was the one. She was sweet and shy and kind and…she gave my son a sparkle that I’d never seen before.
And made him happy.
It wasn’t long before he let us know he was going to propose. I’ll never forget him showing us the ring upstairs in our room. No one was there, but we still all snuck up stairs to share the secret anyway. It was a beautiful moment, ooohing and ahhhhin over the ring…until the Smart One said, “There goes my slurpee money!”
Nah…it was still beautiful, but funny, too!
And that’s how she became the Slurpee Stealer…
Today, she’s still sweet and kind….but shyness has gone out the window. She’s gotten the Vivas spirit in her and it shows. My favorite was my son bringing her to my work so he could show her off. She confidently threw out her left hand and showed off her sparkly ring, as she proclaimed, “I’m Myra!” with a big smile on her face.
The girls has gumption and attitude to go with it; and she knows she belongs with this crazy family.
A perfect fit.
