His girlfriend had told him how she visualized her wedding –
“I’ve often thought I’d like to be married in my backyard under the gazebo.”
He listened and lovingly planned a surprise proposal.
He kept his plan a secret –
His girlfriend would spend the day with her mother and grandmother, and she, unknowingly, would arrive home to a trail of rose petals, beginning at her front door and leading to her backyard gazebo. His mother would spread the white, pink, and red rose petals, a photographer would be hiding in the foreground, and he would be standing under the gazebo, waiting to get on his knee and to ask her to marry him.
It all went according to the plan, and this is how their life together begins –
“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own home. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor . . . Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.” – Mother Teresa
“Spread the Love”
