I am traveling to a special wedding next week...celebrating the union of two people...my 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 start...in many ways, it will be exactly the same for me.
