|Jory and Sabrina|
"Is it okay, Sabrina? You don't mind? I don't want you to feel like we're taking over your wedding day."
"It's fine, don't worry," she promised me from her spot on the bed, snuggled in with my son. "We just want to be married. That's what we care about."
My son kissed her on the forehead and smiled his agreement.
My oldest son got married on Dec. 27, 2016!
He and Sabrina have been together for less than a year, they are going to be parents, they got engaged a month ago, and now they are married.
It's a gorgeous timely story! Ending the year with a new beginning.
For many reasons I am confident this marriage will be wonderful.
Largely because my son is so himself when he's with his new wife. I've watched him grow and explore pieces of who he is and who he wants to be in other relationships, and I've enjoyed that. But with Sabrina he seems so comfortable with who he is while also getting excited about their future.
"I'll accept the manager job but if it doesn't work out for us, I'll demote myself. Go back to this job that I already know I love," he explained to me a few days earlier. He's always put doing what he loves first and career advancement second. But a little later on I heard him chatting with Sabrina about their evening shift at the cinema where they both work. He was offering to switch roles with her, knowing she prefers working concession and she dislikes ushering. He's putting what he loves first again, and it's her.
