Dreaming Gets Her Girl

Twenty-seven years ago God brought me a little boy.


Despite the fact that everyone....
I mean everyone,
said he was going to be a she;

I was carrying the baby really high,
The heartbeat was really fast,
The wedding ring moved in circles.

One of the Doctors even bet me a 6-pack of beer
that it was a girl.
Hmmm... I never collected on that,
I wonder if it is too late?

Imagine my surprise when the Doctor delivered my baby


and said, "You have a perfect little...


boy!"

"A boy?" I said, in disbelief.

But, I loved my boy.


I loved my boy so much, I even had another!

God knew what he was doing when he gave me boys!
I don't do hair ribbons and nail polish and lace very well!

But, now I have my girl...
and I don't have to teach her the girly things!
She came, knowing all of that!


I'd like to introduce you to the bride and groom,


my daughter-in-law and my son,
at the beautiful San Francisco City Hall,


Zoe & Chris,
on the beach in San Francisco.

Wishing you both an 'always' kind of love!
