More Prom Stories

Before I get into some of the stories, let me tell you, I got my head screwed on straight. I had been lamenting some of my bad luck of late, but once I had just one experience, I quickly realized how truly lucky I am. In the “Dress Extravaganza” post, I talked about this wonderful young lady who immediately upon walking in told me I was beautiful! We spent quite a bit of time together that day and more on Prom night. Her family preceded her arrival and told me that she was excited to see me and what I was wearing. When she got off the limo bus, our eyes lit up and I ran toward her and wrapped her in a bug hug. This is my friend and I.

Never in my life have I met anyone with a better attitude! She is undersized for her age, has difficulty with her arms and legs, is of course battling cancer and SHE tells ME that I am beautiful! That is of course, backward. She is always smiling, so vibrant. I saw her later on the dance floor (she was out there most of the night) and she tells me this is the best night of her life! I made sure when she was leaving I gave her a big hug and told her I loved her. She told me she loved me too! Wow….

If you checked out the news story in the previous post, you saw that one of our Cleveland Indians was there. Well, he was kind enough to take a shot with me (as well as a couple of hundred other people). A real grounded, down-to-Earth guy.

One experience after another. Quite a few of the girls made a point of telling me how pretty my dress was. Below is a picture of me and one of them. Also I met a few local beauty queens who are participating in the chain of Miss America qualifying pageants. Of course, there I am with my “sister” queens!

Well I had my coat on, ready to assume my final duties getting the limos lined up and loaded when a few other ladies invited me to join them in the selfie booth. Since I had my coat on, I didn’t grab any props. This is a picture of a picture, so the quality isn’t great, but it is another wonderful memory.

Well, that’s a wrap! Hope you enjoyed my story.

  1. Kandi,

    More fun and frolic. What more could a GIRL as for. Love your taking your little partner under your wing for a hug or two.

  2. So inspiring to see these young people and know that they are enjoying their time to the fullest. That is how we should approach our own lives, if putting on a dress and heels is enjoyable for us, then we ought to just do it!


  3. You have done an enormous good deed for these young folks. God Bless you and Bless all of them .It is sad to see that many of them may have their days on this planet numbered.
    Have you ever thought of directing any of them to view your blog to see how you have written about them?


    1. Pat, I am a fairly insignificant piece of the whole puzzle. You do your thing, soak it all in and stay out of the way. I’m just thrilled on so many different levels to be a part of it all.
