The Flower Girls that Could

My girls work hard in therapy.  Everybody has their bad days, sure, but theirs are truly rare.  They are simply wonderful girls.  They attend therapy three times weekly between two and three hours.  This is -e v e r y- week for the foreseeable future.  That’s a lot of work.  But these last few months they have had a special goal that has motivated them to work very, very hard.  You see, these girls have been training to be flower girls in Sister Middle’s wedding.  This training has been a cross between training for the Olympics and preparing to be in a Miss America pageant.  It’s been a big deal.

And all those months of work paid off.  Last weekend, the girls were Flower Girls.  They were so fantastic.

The Grillo was rigged up for the task.

I’m posting a link to their Rehearsal aisle walking.  Please, please take some time and enjoy this.  The Flower Girls that Could Part I  The Flower Girls that Could Part II

And here are the girls in their lovely flower girl garb.

I was attending the girls, but I hear that Eva smiled radiantly the whole time.  She was so thrilled to be walking down the aisle as a flower girl!  And Audrey took her task of petal tossing so seriously!  She is usually our girl who smiles ALL the time, so this was a new facet of Audrey to appreciate.  She told me that she was thinking so much about walking and tossing petals that she didn’t look up to smile at all the people in the church.  She told me she was a shy girl.  I told her not to worry at all; she did a wonderful job and it’s okay to be shy.  Many, many guests at the wedding complimented the girls on their flower girling accomplishments.  It was a very sweet time for us all.

The wedding itself, and the Bride, Groom, and wedding party were all so, so lovely, but that’s not my wedding to talk about so you’ll just have to take my word for it.  Congratulations to the newly wedded couple!  May God bless your marriage with grace, love, and peace!  Thank you for letting us share in your joy.20170722_172701
