Empty Nest

T – minus 29 days till the big do. The candle holders are ready. We washed and polished them yesterday and tested the floating candles for timing as well. Being sewn into a dress is a long process. Would she be easier if she were an off the rack kind of girl?

The dress is beautiful. I wished we could have used more of my lace.

At family dinner on Monday I talked about the book that I’m reading. It was written by a journalist who finds herself at the crossroads after much tribulation (maybe not so much, but she’s young yet.) endeavoring to walk a long trail in ill fitting boots. She keeps to her path in spite of lost toenails, snow and water bourne illness.

I was buoyed by the sight of our nephew cuddling on the floor with the new puppy. That is the love that endures.

I wish for your enduring love.
