Joy

June 24, 2009

The e-mail I received yesterday pales in comparison to the one I got today… It has (very few) details about my bachelorette party! Because the party is one week from tomorrow, one of my girls sent me essential info: where, when, and what. Or at least a little bit of what. 🙂 I am BEYOND excited. All my girls and I are going to gather at a hotel on Thursday evening to get ready, hit the town with dinner first and then one of my favorite piano bars, before coming back to the hotel for lots of fun, I’m sure. I’m most excited about spending quality time with my favorite girls. I’m missing having girls here and cannot wait to see them. I got so excited reading the e-mail that I thought I was going to burst. I cannot believe it’ll be here so soon!!!

I firmed up my last vendor today. Thank goodness. I’m basically all packed for the wedding weekend extravaganza, save some last minute stuff. I’m pretty well packed for our big move this weekend as well. And thankfully, I think I’ll get to stay out of the heat and organize, nest, and unpack while the boys pack up the heavy stuff and move it to the new place. I’m looking forward to that.

Then I recieved a sweet forward from Carrie, our photographer. Here are pieces that especially touched me.

When in doubt, just take the next small step.
It’s OK to get angry with God. (S)He can take it.
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don’t worry; God never blinks.
Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
Over prepare, then go with the flow.
Frame every so-called disaster with these words ”In five years, will this matter?”.
God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.

In 10 days, I will be getting married and officially starting a new family with Jarrod. I am beyond thrilled. It has hit me several times today like a 2×4 how incredibly blessed I am and what a beautiful time in my life this is. I cannot wait to see many of you in 7-10 days. 🙂
