This event is all about honoring the special woman in my life who has provided ongoing support, sacrifice, and encouragement: My loving wife, Suzie.
The activities are designed to assist in fostering the growth & strengthening of our relationship. In order to attend this event, I had to complete three workshops.
1) The first workshop covered “Gratitude Letters”.
Dawn Taylor (the event coordinator) gave us a lecture as to what a gratitude letter really is. Or should I say, what it is NOT. It is not a love letter, or a sex letter, or even a thank you letter.
It is a letter that expresses gratitude & recognizes sacrifices. After Ms. Taylor made her points perfectly clear, she then gave everyone some pretty stationary. I chose butterflies and roses on mine. Then I wrote my gratitude letter to my awesome wife.
2) The second workshop taught us how to do the “Waltz”.
It’s a non-contact square dance. We can hold hands while doing it…but no body-to-body, bumping and grinding type stuff.
Yep, they’re going to allow us to dance with our wives. Pretty cool if you ask me!!! This is a special moment that we will share together. I have butterflies in my stomach just thinking of it.
3) At the third and finale workshop, we made corsages for the women we love.
This event is amazing! I’m so impressed with all the effort that goes into it. It’s almost like a High School prom or something like that.
Suzie will be making the 14 hour drive from California to Washington. She’ll be leaving CA at 3 am and driving non-stop all the way to me.
I love you baby….thank you so much! I’m so excited to see my wife.
I’ll be sure to write all about it and share pics.
