" The only way things will change will be when we're all wilder, louder, riskier, sillier,
unexpectedly overflowing with surprise. " Jill Soloway
My daughter called me up last night and told me that her wedding in October was
off. She was not changing her mind. No more outdoor wedding with 100 friends
and family. No more D, J. photographer,cake, decoration , hall or caterer. No
speeches or Daddy of the bride song.
After my heart sank she told me she would be marrying sometime between the
end of June and the end of August. They are marrying in a non- denominational
church. Hopefully inside. with only immediate family and few friends . Less than
25 people. She will wear her dress and carry a small bouquet she will make
herself from flowers at traders Joes. There will be two bridesmaids.
A flower girl and a ring bearer.
She doesn't care what her groom , best man and my son her groomsmen wear.
They do need to match, My husband will still walk her down the aisle. Then we
are going to her house for a barbecue.
Wait!!! Hold the presses none of my dresses fit. I told Sara that I would wear a simple
sundress. No flowers!! she says. Next thing I know my phone beeps. What do
you think of this dress.? Not my fav I don't know. She says would you like it better
in wine or teal. I say wine she say's fine it will be at your house tomorrow .!!!!
I say wait what size she says i ordered an extra large so it will fit if you don't like
it we can return it , for something else.
So all the plans and dreams , and ideas are all thrown out the window.
I could be mad at covid or the world but this is the way it was meant to be.
Instead we will have a simple inexpensive beautiful wedding and party after.
Funny thing when I did my Love your Life challenge today with Jay Shetty
he actually talked about Goals. he said" If you keep going you will get to
where you need to be in life , just not the way you imagined." There were
over 10, 000 people taking the challenge . It's a group participation. I told
him about Sara's change of plans and how this way may be better. He actually
read my response to the whole group. He said weddings are not entertainment
but energy and that a smaller wedding with family would be special and stronger,
How cool and meant to be was that.
So remember if your disappointed or turned down take another path you will
get to where you are going just not in the way you ever imagined, Keep looking
for Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living
