What is a dramatic swoosh?
It's entering your parents bedroom by pushing the door back quickly at six in the morning.
"Yes." Mumbled by me.
"Mother, I have to marry Owen. He is the only boy that I love."
That is a lot for a mom to process at six in the morning, let me tell you.
I assured her that if God wanted her to marry Owen it would happen.
Later we went into a longer discussion on the reality of who you may or may not marry, but I don't think it changed her mind much. She is one determined little girl.
By my calculations Owen will be back in the states at age 8, 12, 16, 20 and so forth and so on.
I'm thinking by 16 we can let them write, and at 20 they can start dating. :-)
Sound good Teresa?
