I have two very dear friends and both of them experienced true joy this weekend.
The first one happened on Saturday evening, when her son walked down the isle of Believers' Chapel to be married to the love of his life.
The second one shed tears of joy when her son walked to his car to go to work for the first time since his terrible accident a few months ago.
Both incidents were so very different in nature, other than the walking.... but both brought extreme joy to the mothers.
Hopefully, nobody will have to experience the trauma of a child's life lingering in the balance between here and eternity, and hopefully nobody will have to see their child suffer. But for those who join the club of the wounded child, they are all too familiar with that sheer joy.
So, congratulations to my dear friend's children's accomplishments.
One for tying the knot, the other for going to work by himself.
Good for you both. :)
