A Grand and Glorious Day

The wedding is over, and what a wedding it was!


Such a thrill seeing your child marry the woman of their dreams.  We actually made it on time, even though hubby had to run to the store the morning of to get a shirt, shoes and a belt.

They asked for no cell phone pictures, so my phone never made it out of my purse, but my cousin captured my son and I doing the mother/son dance.

My son chose the song, My Mother's Eyes by Frankie Valli for our dance - oh that was a tearjerker, let me tell you.

My favorite picture:


The pictures aren't the highest quality because I shamelessly stole them from her facebook, and facebook compresses them.

But oh, what a gorgeous, perfect, thrilling day.  I didn't get to sleep until 4am (drank too much coffee at the reception, it was delicious).  The wedding itself was at a chapel on a lake, down a steep hill, and they carried my mom down in a wheelchair - had to go down a few steps - at least we know her pacemaker is working!!!!!  She got quite a ride.

And now, life may return to a little bit more normal - dare we hope?  Our temps have gone from 88F to 44F overnight, I had to turn the heat on this morning for mum.  Too early!!!

See you soon!

PS - some comments are not coming to my email, some are - I'll try to remember to come back here to read them!

  "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."

(Philippians 4:13)

I see this verse everywhere, but usually translated to Christ who strengthens me.  Now, I love the KJ Bible - and I believe that every word of God is pure - and that if the KJ says "which", there's a reason.  So one night I just pondered this verse, prayed, and the next morning I thought, what if I've been reading it wrong?  What if I read it "I can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth me?" Emphasis on the comma.  As in, the knowledge that I can do all things through Christ strengthens me.  Does that make sense?  It sure did to me....maybe I'm nuts, but it gives me comfort.  Well, all of it gives me comfort, lol!

my front yard early in the morning

As I've mentioned in the previous post, a lot has been happening this year.  Could I do all these things in my own strength?  Um, NO.  Mom just got out of an eleven day hospital stay, where they discovered she has aspiration pneumonia, she's taking thin liquids into her lungs.  So now I'm thickening her water, protein drinks, and soup.  It's tasteless, but I won't tell you what it looks like, ugh.

She seems to be doing better, she was really mentally altered there for awhile.  She's very glad to be home, and I'm glad she's home as well.  Now to see if we can get back into our routine of meals and medicines, exercises and cleanup....seems like if you stop even briefly, it takes extra effort to get back into it!  

I've wanted to get outside with my camera, but have failed miserably.  I must admit it was nice going up to the hospital twice a day, at least it got me outside....winter will come all too soon, and then I won't want to step out the door!  I'm going shopping with my brother tomorrow, he needs something to wear to my son's wedding, and I need shoes.  I think it will be nice to get out with him, and spend some time, just the two of us.

May the peace of Christ fill your minds, and your homes....
