Make a Difference Monday: A Bride and her Sailor Prince

Overtired cries
She lays in her bed awake
Fighting needed rest

If you turn on my van you'll find KLove playing. I love listening to uplifting music and its comforting knowing I don't have to worry about B hearing something she shouldn't. KLove has "Make a Difference Monday," which challenges listeners to make a positive difference in someone else's day.

We were at lunch with Josh's Grandfather this afternoon when a young bride and her Sailor groom sat behind us. Brenna asked if she was a princess and we told her no, that she was a bride who had just gotten marries. B asked if she married her prince, I said yes!

Well, I thought about this couple as they sat behind me and I kept wondering how I could make a difference on this, their wedding day, Monday. Since we're not yet in a position to make a difference monetarily I was stuck on how I could make a difference because I felt it in my heart, I was supposed to do something. As we were getting ready to leave, I finally decided to tell the bride what my 3 year old had asked about her marrying her prince.

I don't know if it made a difference in her day (I think her mom liked it though) but it sure made a difference in mine.

(Needless to say this was supposed to be posted on Monday but I fell asleep before I did, oops)
