There once was a little boy who climbed onto his friend’s bike that was too big for him.
He tried to ride it down the driveway, but he fell and broke his arm.
A few years later, that same little boy climbed up another friend’s bunk bed, got his leg stuck in the ladder rung, and fell and broke his other arm.
Years passed, and his poor frazzled mom thought he’d outgrown his arm-breaking tendencies, when she got a call from his best friend in college saying he was in the hospital.
He was rocking climbing at a gym, and you guessed it …
He fell and broke his arm again.
But one day, she got a call from her son.
“Mom, I’ve met someone.”
The mother was overjoyed. Her rambunctious little boy had grown up and met someone special.
And then he said the words,
“And she likes to climb too.”
And last weekend, he proposed to the rock climbing love of his life.
His fiance has a ring that belonged to her grandmother, but she wanted something smaller and simpler – a little “rock,” so he bought her this dainty Champagne Diamond ring (affiliate). He told me when he ordered it, and I impatiently waited to hear when he popped the question.
He was waiting for a day with decent weather, so he could propose when they could go hiking and have a picnic.
Should I be worried about their love of rock climbing and high places?
I don’t think so, because …
The couple that belays together, stays together. 🙂
They can climb every mountain together, for the rest of their lives.
With two sons getting married, it’s going to be a busy year. And I couldn’t be happier.
Trust me, you’ll love it. 🙂
