|Menu my friend and I created for "the dinner"|
Blessed. And lucky. Very, very lucky.
This weekend was Prom. My twins and their girlfriends' last gala in high school. As prom's go, we got off fairly easy. A new tuxedo purchased for one twin while the other got the "old" one. New vests and ties to go with the Roaring 20's theme. I bought the shoes for one girlfriend. Wrist corsages. Tickets. Food and decorations for the Tuscan dinner they asked me to prepare and host rather than a reservation at a fancy restaurant. Cheap in comparison to some of the stories I've heard from other parents.

I'm not sure how the hubs and I managed to get so lucky in the kid department. I'm sure we had a little to do with it but really, I think there was a lot of luck too. And prayer. Lots of prayer.
So here's one more prayer to add to the mix.
Dear God -
Thank you for giving my boys and their friends a wonderful evening and for delivering everyone home safe and sound.
