Wheeeew…..What a month!

So here’s what’s been going on.

Bride

WE DID IT! WE MARRIED!

Got engaged in February. Wedding planned for April, 2014.
Ninety-one year old father went under Hospice care at the end of August, 2013.
Wedding moved up to end of October. (Awesome, happy, joyful wedding on October 26, 2013.)
Dad passed October 29, 2013. Funeral November 1, 2013, and honeymoon on November 4.

Whew.

There’s nothing like having two major life events on opposite ends of the spectrum compressed into such a short time to make you prioritize life, and quickly! We didn’t want Dad’s impending passing to dampen the joy of our celebration, so we chose to fully appreciate the happiness of our wedding and also to fully celebrate the life of my dad. One beautiful way to manage the feeling of loss and sadness is to focus on what you have, and we have a rich abundance of love and support of friends.

So, that’s why it’s been quiet in here….but the big lesson in life is that Love always continues. And that’s Love Applied!

P.S. Here’s a link to a cool wedding slide show made by my friend Michael Trufant if you want to see more of the fun.

    So glad you are back and happy for your new status. Your hubbie has a very handsome, kind face and that makes me happy for you. You deserve the best and “by george” you’ve got it and he certainly has the best wife on the planet. I would love to meet this love of yours so maybe after the new year, we can gather together and have dinner, and invite others if you like. Happy Thanksgiving, give your mom a hug from me. All my love my friend, Susan
