So I arranged for these two to go out on a date just before I left Utah. Then my job was to back off and see what would happen. I asked how they were doing a bit later and in response I got this photo.
It says a lot!
I haven’t been getting much sleep these past few weeks. About 10 days ago I was finally going to get some rest (more than 5.5 hours) and went to bed. At 11:30pm I got a phone call. It was from Mike. It was good news. Something he and I had been talking about for a long time finally happened. He was excited. I was sleepy.
As mention in the previous post, I had to be in at work early and had a 3:00am wakeup. Yes there is a 3:00 in the morning for those of you who didn’t know. So I crashed putting the boys to bed last night.
Wouldn’t you know it, around 11:00 there was a phone call from Mike. Chrissy answered, woke me up and it was good news once again.
He wanted to tell me that McKell got a new ring and he bought it for her.
There’s a bit of pride involved in playing match maker. After all this makes two couples I’ve introduced. My efforts are minimal compared to the amount of work it takes to create a family and keep it together. They’re wonderful people. They’re a wonderful couple. Just the sort of wonderful people that causes a loving Heavenly Father to send an invitation to the highest covenant man can make here on earth.
Congrats Mike and McKell! I’m glad to be your friends.
