I have been reflecting the past few days and I have decided I am a very lucky girl. This has been a rather calming thought in the times I get anxious about my upcoming wedding or life in general.
When I think of the different elements that are coming together for my wedding , I am so grateful for all this grace in my life.
I have very supportive parents. Yeah they drive me crazy sometimes, but I always know that I can count on them
Reasons why my wedding shows I’m lucky:
My super awesome fiance J. He is the sweetest and funniest guy I know and it doesn’t hurt that he is HOT! Sometimes, I can’t believet that he actually loves me. We have had our share of problems and we both know that we’ll probably have more, but I know that we’ll always find a way to work through them. I am so happy that I’m the lucky girl who gets to marry him
My friends. My best friend KD is my rock! Because of our busy schedules we don’t really get to talk much these days but I know I can turn to her whenever I need a good vent or need some advice or opinion.She is my biggest cheerleader and now she is going to be the officiant at my wedding.
My good friend JJ is an inspiration to me. She is a such a great photographer and a has such a great imagination. I love reading her blog and looking at her great pics. I am so grateful that she is helping me plan this wedding. She has been invaluable to me by giving me advice, scouting out a location, giving me neat ideas for dresses, etc.
My friend JE is actually flying across the country to come to the wedding. I know thats hard for her, because she is a student and a single mom and its hard for her to get away. The fact that she is willing to make so much time for me makes me feel really special.
My cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. My extended family are a crazy bunch, but they sure know how to have a good time. Same goes for all our family friends as well.
There are so many more people and so many serendipitious things that I am grateful for as these plans start to fall into place. I have said before that one of my core values is that of a community and I couldn’t ask for a better one than the one I’ve got.
I am humbled by the grace in my life.
