the blessed dress/幸运的礼服
i got an engagement ring for christmas. my boyfriend and i had been dating for almost a year and both felt the time was right to join our lives together in holy matrimony.
the month of january was spent planning our perfect alabama june wedding. my mother, two sisters and i went to huntsville, the closest town with a selection of bridal shops, to buy the gown that would play the leading role on my special occasion.
we had a wonderful time just being together and sharing silly jokes, but the day soon turned serious by afternoon: still no sign of the dress of my dreams. both sisters were ready to give up and try another day in another town, but i coerced them into one more boutique.
i had a good feeling as we entered the quaint little shop filled with the scent of fresh flowers. the elderly clerk showed us several beautiful gowns in my size and price range, but none were right. as i opened the door to leave, the desperate shop owner announced she had one more dress in the back that was expensive and not even my size, but perhaps i might want to look at it anyway. when she brought it out, i squealed in delight.
