When my sister told me to get dressed up nice for dinner, I thought she was joking. This was just not something that the two of us did, or at least hardly ever. But, I did as she asked, and I just hoped that she was taking me somewhere really fancy. I went to the website of a new restaurant in town, thinking that may have been the one she wanted to go to. I didn’t get my hopes up, just in case. I was ready when she knocked on my door, but it was not her.
It was a chauffeur, and his beautiful stretch limo was behind him. To say I was confused would be an understatement. I had no idea what was going on, but I was also very intrigued. I wanted to know what my sister had planned, and it did not take me long to find out. When the door was opened for me, I stepped inside and proceeded to burst into tears. The reason she wanted me to be at my best is because my son was waiting for me in the limo. He had brought his wife and their newly adopted son and daughter.
I never thought I would be a grandmother because my daughter in law has medical issues, so we were all excited about their adoption. I didn’t think they would be arriving back in the country for another week though, which I found out they had done on purpose. I got to hold my grandson and granddaughter for the first time, and I realized why they had the limo for this introduction. Once I got over the shock of seeing my new family members, I could see that there were a lot of others in the limo too. It was very nice and comfortable, and those memories of meeting them will forever be etched in my mind.
