I was taking a late break at work last Thursday when I checked my phone and saw I had three missed calls (2 from home, 1 from my brother) and a text from my brother's girlfriend.
Let me preface this by saying that my phone is NOT Grand Central Station...and this was probably more action than it had seen all week, so I got a little worried.
I listened to my messages...nothing much, just my daughter telling me she missed me and my brother asking that I call him when I get a chance, so I shrugged my shoulders, happy to know that the world was not coming to an end.
Then, I clicked over to my brother's girlfriend's text...
I, literally screamed out loud, "OH MY GOD!!!!", dropped my phone and got all teary eyed! I then called my brother and babbled and congratulated and beamed and laughed and giggled and screamed some more! Hearing that news made my night.
Scratch that, it made my year!
I was telling complete strangers that I was FINALLY getting what I've wanted my whole life...
And, I couldn't have handpicked a better one.
Welcome to the family, K.!!
I have already declared this the "Best Christmas Ever"!!
