Just Married!

If you weren't able to watch when the wedding happened, you can click here to watch it now. The first half hour is just prelude music. I would advise dragging the video to 31:30 to start watching.

I love fall. It is special to be in NC for the month of November.
This time next month I won't have to drive here anymore to see Jason––I'll live here!!!

Lots of leaves have been falling these last couple days with more wind.
Ah, poor Frack, who was stuck in a tree for 4 nights!

After a minor meltdown in Target last week (by SJ), we went out for attempt #2 yesterday and were able to complete gift registration! We are now registered at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond. Look us up using either of our names.

Oh! I suggest using the groom's name. There is another bride on the Target registry with my same first and last name!!! My mind is blown. Getting married the same week as us. In Montana. WOW.

Together again

Long-distance relationships are HARD.
Our visits have almost all had 1 month gaps between them.
It is GOOD to be together again.
(hopefully we'll never have to be apart that long again!)

"Look what I found at the airport! Can I keep her?"

First remembered meeting

33 years and 7 months later...

Hi Danny and Sue.

I’ve had a ‘bee in my bonnet’ for 4 years or so and I’m going to let the ‘bee’ out.

I’ve admired Jason from a distance through your speaking of/about him and I’ve wished our girls could get to know him and he, them. The older they become, fewer single, wholesome men are out there to relate to.

As you know, Sarahjoy is going through a hard time right now.... My question is: Would Jason consider corresponding with her? I think it would cheer her up. She’s not looking for a man in her life, but she is always interested in healthy male friendships.

I haven’t mentioned Jason to Sj but both of our girls have given Jim and me unreserved permission to facilitate male friendships.

If Jason would consider corresponding with Sj, however long or briefly, I would expect that he communicate upfront that her mom suggested the action.

I haven’t communicated with Jason directly because I don’t know his address, of course. But even more than that, I don’t know him very well and I like using you 2 as a filter. If this request is inappropriate, disregard it.

Also, at this point, if my notion is rejected, it seems best to just leave SJ out of the loop.

Wow! I said it as best I could. This email is awfully upfront. Please forgive.
And Jim and Charis are in full agreement with me sending this.

Love you,
Peggyrose & Jim & Charis

...I appreciate your letter immensely.  Jason is always interested in your family's updates whenever we share any news.  We will certainly discuss your ideas with him tomorrow and ask him to pray about it.  I am sure his first response will be "what could I possibly say to be helpful to someone with such diverse experiences."  He has mentioned her "Haiti" experience on several occasions - how much he admired her being able and willing to pursue such an adventure.

From my perspective, he has a lot of insight, more than he gives himself credit. He ... has many occasions to be "up front & honest" to men at work who harass him for not being married/or having a girlfriend.  He accepts the fact he will probably remain single and is not looking for "mrs. right!!"

It's a shame that he is perceived as "odd" because he leads a pretty simple, orderly life.  He enjoys reading and loves good conversation.

I am thankful you even thought in this direction.  Who knows, this could be a good friendship between two people who are quite different!

Let's put it out there in prayer and we'll talk to him tomorrow....

love to all....
