I pull around a line of taxis to get to my desired spot. As I pull to the curb I see two stunningly beautiful young people. They are very tan and look incredibly tired but happy. They recognize my car and break into grins. I put the gearshift into Park and undo my seatbelt as I turn the car off. Unlocking the car to step out I see them in the rear view mirror pulling their bags. I am so excited to see them. Walking back I pop the trunk with my key fob and he immediately throws the bags into the trunk. "Whoooaaa" I say "You know I have to get a picture of ya'll getting back!" They laugh and smile and unload the two carry on bags that have now been to Mexico and back. As I watch him pull his bag around I see his hand. His left hand and forearm still smaller and not as strong as a year ago suddenly bears that he is beyond all doubt a grown man. His tanned hand is adorned by a ring on his 3rd finger, a wedding band. For a second I am in awe that my precious baby is a 25 year old married man but only for a second for my next sight is of him looking at her, his precious bride his eyes and face filled with love and adoration. I snap the picture.
