Yesterday, one of my good girlfriends got married! While I’m still wrapping my head around this, I noticed at the reception the strong connection Brittany has with Korey, her husband. I saw how well they work together as a newly wed couple.
I grew up among daycare kids, young girls and boys that have become some of my best friends over the years. I bonded more with the girls there because we were closer in age, while most of the boys at my old daycare were younger than me.
I have vivid memories of watching Brittany grow up along me at our old daycare. She started out as an Elementary School-aged girl, just like me.
As a teenager, Brittany had a silly, humorous side. She was also a warm and generous person. She, like me, grew up in a Christian household that focused on intertwining life and faith.
Last night, I was pleased to see that she hadn’t changed. Brittany has kept her sense of humor, her kindness, her generosity, and her faith. I realized that in the time we’d spent apart, she had gained new life experiences from college and her time spent in the military. These experiences, I feel, have helped strengthen her character.
Watching the customary slide show, I was struck by how well Brittany and Korey compliment each other: they both love hunting and dancing. As teens, they both played sports like hockey and softball. They come from loving families, with supportive parents and siblings.
I’m very happy for Brittany, for she seems to have found someone who loves and cares about her just as much as she loves and cares about him.
I wish them all the best in the coming months and years.
