I Second That Emotion...

I had one of those nights where the brain is in overdrive and bouncing all over the place. Fortunately exhaustion finally kicked in and sleep was very good. Do you ever have moments, days or weeks whereby you experience every single emotion. Our lives have been filled to over flowing with abundant joy and yet at the same time we are experiencing extreme anxiousness, sadness and disappointment.





Unfortunately, some people will let you down and disappoint you...all we can do is get up, dust off and keep going...I saw a "Japanese proverb" that states "Fall Seven Times Stand Up Eight"I like that a LOT. I still have to believe with every thing in my soul that most people are good...it is the only way to make it through one day to the next. With hope. My husband is the King of dust yourself off, quit whining and go forth!

sooo...how do you like my new house....

I wish...this enchanting home was the setting for a lovely wedding day brunch for our very soon to be daughter in law. Friends of the family hosted a lovely event and allowed me to wander amidst the antiques and fabulous architectural features...love!

It was a busy, cold and wet weekend culminating in the joining of two hearts as one!



Presenting Mr. and Mrs. F, III All the very best to them as they start a new chapter in their lives!




(My husband yelled Mazaltov after the speeches...I am not sure he knows what that means! The bride's sister tucked her dress in her PURPLE rainboots for the reception. It was cold and the ground was still very wet!)

So much joy...

coupled with anxiousness...a son in law in Afghanistan...we pray for his safety and well being...his wife and children miss him so much!

As my friend Kristi often closes...Peace Ya'll!!!

Thanks to Ellen for the pictures. I took the one of my granddaughter sleeping and the one of the white house.

It looks like it was a beautiful ceremony, and that house IS gorgeous!

Wow, you do have a lot of reasons to be emotional. I hope the coming week gives you some quiet.

It looks like a lovely wedding.

Awwww, I love weddings. Deployments, not so much. That pic of your granddaughter is just precious! It is a bummer that the bad has to be mixed in with the good. On the other hand, isn't it a blessing that the good is always mixed in with the bad? (Hugs)
