Monday's Musings: Wedding Day Jitters

I might have them, a little bit, even though it isn't my wedding day...

I am traveling to a special wedding next week...celebrating the union of two sister is getting hitched.  In joining her, I am joining lots of family I have never met. I will be a part of her big day, which means so much.

In joining her, I will be joining parts of my life, parts of my hearts, parts of my past.  It is a bit scary...overall, I am excited and look forward to it.

I have wedding on the brain.  I want a pretty dress so I feel as comfortable as I can...because I am sure I will not feel emotionally comfortable the whole time.  Life is about facing things, learning, growing, uniting, celebrating...I am ready for that.

If you had ever asked me if I thought I would be traveling to the state where my father lived, to the place where I have two sisters and a brother...I would have said that it wouldn't happen.

But here we are...

I think I will take a moment during it all and thank him.  Thank him for watching over Sara and I guess, watching over me.  His passing resulted in things I don't think he ever expected.  He must be so proud of her.  I imagine he is proud of me too.

Heavy...joyous...all at once.

I made this layout a while back...It is about what role forgiveness has played in my life. 

Her day will be beautiful and wonderful, a celebration and a new many ways, it will be exactly the same for me.
