A beautiful bride Laura VanPelt was planning her wedding and had someone very special in mind to be her flower girlâ€¦ her sweet grandmother.
Laura broke the news to her almost 95 year old grandmother Helen Catherine Kavanagh on Christmas.
“When she asked me, I just laughed,” Helen recalled. “I thought she was kidding, of course. But then she said ‘No, grandma, I’m not. I want you to be my flower girl.”
It took the Grandmother Helen about a half hour to walk down the aisle. Â She happily sprinkled flower petals all around to prepare the way for her granddaughter. We canâ€™t think of a better person for this role than the person who has showered love and wisdom over her for all of her life.
Helen said that her special role in her granddaughterâ€™s wedding was “the biggest thrill I’ve ever had.”
Grandmother Helen is blessed with 11 grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and a little baby on the way. We pray that God will continue to bless this family!
