flower-girl-basket

Hamilton has a thing for artists, so one day he goes to a park and sees a girl weaving (flower crowns, baskets etc.) , & a boy drawing sitting on a fountain edge looking at turtles in the fountain . Later in life he meets a girl who spray paints, they get arrested together and Hamilton loses all chances of getting into the college he wanted
Spray paint girl is Maria
Drawing boy is John
Guitar girl is Eliza.
The college is his chance at a presidency.

The reason Maria also goes to jail is because she was shunned for a majority of her life after Hamilton while being abandoned by her husband and Hamilton (who she might have loved)

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
Look around you. Who could use a simple act of kindness? There are hurting people all about us. Maybe you know someone who is just lonely. If you aren’t in the habit of sowing seeds of kindness, start with something simple. How about a smile and a kind word to someone? Send a note of encouragement to someone who is going through a hard time. Anything nice you do for someone can be considered an act of kindness.
Lord, thank You for showing kindness to me when I least deserved it. Help me to be Your loving hands, feet and words to a world that desperately needs You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Simon’s Point of View

I woke up with a weird, tingling sensation in my stomach. I had slept over at the Sidemen House again for the first time in a long time.

I had moved in with my girlfriend, now my fiancée Y-N, two years ago so that we could somewhat start a life of our own. And a couple of months ago, I took a deep breath and proposed to her whilst we were on holiday in the south of France together. My heart melted when she said yes.

And today was the day.

Y-N had called dibs on our apartment so that she could get ready with her bridesmaids and her parents, whilst the boys helped me get ready here in the Sidemen House.

‘Yo, today’s the big day, man.’ JJ walked into my room, loudly clapping his hands together. I breathed in deeply and buried my face further into my pillow.

‘I can’t believe it,’ I mumbled tiredly.

'Come on, let’s get ready! We only have a couple of hours!’ He said, jumping around, trying to get me out of bed.

'Fine,’ I mumbled and ripped the sheets from my body.

I made my way down the stairs slowly, only to be greeted by Vikk and Josh already sat by the island, four plates of scrambled eggs and bacon laid out nicely.

'Wow, who made breakfast?’ I asked, impressed.

'I did,’ Vikk said with a mouthful, raising his fork in the air.

'Well, thanks.’ I smiled and sat down, looking at the mouth-watering food.

***

After breakfast, we all disappeared into our rooms to get changed and ready. My hands were shaking as I pulled my black suit out of the wardrobe.

***

'Simon, are you ready? We’ve got to leave soon!’ I heard Josh say from downstairs.

'Yeah, just give me a couple more seconds!’ I said as I fixed my hair for the third time. Then Josh walked into my room, completely ready in his navy blue suit. I couldn’t keep the smile off my face. All my best friends were dressing up for my wedding.

I was stood in front of the mirror, quickly fixing my tie again.

'Yo, you can’t forget this,’ Josh said from my desk, picking up a little white flower clip, He walked over and clipped it to the pocket on my chest.

'Thanks,’ I said, wiping my sweaty palms on my trousers.

'You nervous?’ He asked with a giggle.

'What do you think,’ I asked sarcastically. He laughed, and then Vikk and JJ showed up in my doorframe, too.

'Bro, you don’t have to be nervous. She said yes to marrying you, she’ll say yes today. And she’s going to look absolutely stunning, and think that you look pretty great, too.’ Vikk reassured me. I smiled at the thought of seeing her in her wedding dress. I couldn’t decide of I was more nervous or excited.

And then I teared up. I don’t know why, but the tears brewed in my eyes and almost immediately started running down my cheeks. I held both my eyes with my fingers, sniffling.

'Yo, it’s going to be okay, man.’ JJ walked over and embraced me. I sniffled into his suit and then leaned back, wiping at my eyes.

'Yeah, sorry. It’s okay.’ I said, blinking into the light to stop more tears from forming. Together, the four of us headed out and walked down the stairs and opened the front door to see JJ’s Lambo already parked outside. He had offered to give us all a ride, convinced that the groom also needed to 'arrive in style’.

***

The room was huge, with hundreds of chairs stood out in front of me. The big entrance doors were open as guests were filing in, taking their seats. I was stood at the alter, my sweaty hands clenched together in front of me. Josh was standing behind me. I stared out and smiled at all the guests.

Then my mum, dad and brother walked in, taking their seats in the front row. I gave them a worried look but Nick, my brother, gave me two thumbs up, making me giggle.

A couple more minutes and the room as packed with people, voices filling the air.

'You okay?’ Josh asked my from behind my shoulder. No, my knees feel like jelly, I’m super sweaty and my hands are shaking.

'Yeah,  I’m fine.’ I muttered back. The entrance doors closed and then opened again, showing the little flower girls holding wooden baskets. The walked in with big, adorable smiles on their faces, picking up a couple of flower petals out of the basket and throwing them on the isle floor. I watched nervously as they flowed down to the ground delicately.

Music was sounding from the speakers. That classical, wedding song played on the organ.

Next were two of Y-N’s best friends, dressed in long, matching and flowing bridesmaids dresses. They were both holding a small bouquet of flowers.

But I wasn’t focusing on them. I was focusing on who was behind them; Y-N, dressed in the most beautiful, long, white wedding dress, a glittery tiara tangled neatly in her hair. The took small steps down the isle, her long train dragging behind her. Her arm was linked with her Dad’s, who was dressed in a suit.

Her eyes locked with mine and she smiled, and in that split second, it was like a wave of calmness washed over me. Because in that split second, I knew not to be nervous anymore, but excited. My heart was still pounding in my chest, yes, but I was finally getting married to the love of my life.

I absolutely loved this idea. My hands were sweating the entire time writing this

afirewiel  asked:

Prompt: Lydia and her dad have a falling out and when he doesn't show up at her and Stiles's wedding, Lydia surprises Sheriff Stilinski by asking him to give her away.

This was an adorable idea so thank you for coming up with it. 

Here it is :)
