Mom and Dad get to see "The Bling" ~ Thanks to Technology ~

December 18, 2010 was one of the happiest days for two women ~ A girlfriend and a mom ~

Thanks to the world of technology, something we take for granted every single day, a son was able to text his Mom and say "Are you still up? We're engaged!"

"Yes", the Mom said. How happy she was to hear her son and his girlfriend became engaged that evening.

Dad texted the son, "We want proof" "Send us a picture of the ring on her hand".

The Mom is anxiously awaits a picture to come to her phone. She can hardly believe her son is going to be married to the most wonderful girl her son has been dating for six years. Suddenly her phone announces another text. "She's on the phone with her parents, I'll send a picture soon". Memories rush back to the Mom of her wedding day while she awaits the arrival of the picture.

Her phone dings again, it's here she exclaims, Oh, my, The subject, "The Bling"

The BlingThis was a very special moment for a son to be able to share in some way with his parents thanks to the world of technology. There was also a video secretly taken by one of friends of the entire proposal but our son asked that we not share it until he manages to edit out an expletive from one of his shocked friends. He made me swear I would not post it on Facebook *who me, never*

Congratulations to all -- this speaks volumes:  To be sharing with you so immediately.  I'd say you've certainly gained a true family member.  Now let the whirlwind begin . . .
