    Our son, who had one difficult child year in high school, proposed to his girlfriend last night and she accepted! (Throwing salt over my shoulder/thanking G-d/lighting a candle/doing happy dance). They are both Education Majors and on the Dean's List. In addition, they both work part-time and save their money. She is a great gal and I like her very much! They plan on getting married when they graduate from college, in just over one year. He bought her a beautiful ring with his own money. We have a small family and have had many difficult years. This has been a very good/welcomed moment in our lives. :D
