Today, two of my dearest friends, Paul and MaryJo Hughes, hosted their daughter’s wedding. I was so excited for them and for Brianna and Michael Palowitch. An absolutely stunning event. With each of these life events, there will be tears of sadness that Charles won’t have these moments. But tears of great joy as well.
Before I left for the wedding today, I set aside time to grieve the loss of those special moments and decided that I was going to enjoy the event without guilt.
I decided that instead of being sad because this is the first time I have been in that church since Charles’ funeral, I was going to remember how gracious Grace & Holy Trinity was to us–how they opened their arms and their hearts when we needed it the most, to give my son one of the most beautiful and memorable services ever.
I decided to savor the moment and have fun. And I did.
Love and lace is for that wedding that will never be as well as for all the weddings that will.
