First I was supposed to go to my cousin’s renewal of vows. She invited us months ago and we were all set to go. But then for a variety of reasons, we weren’t able to make it.
I am sad that I wasn’t there to see them and their family. It has been a few years and I miss all of them. It was supposed to be a weekend of fun and family and we had to miss it. Bummer!!!
We will try again in a few months for a visit. Hopefully then the timing and plans will work in our favor.
Then tonight is my niece’s confirmation. We weren’t able to go to that either, although we did want to. I am thrilled for her and her family. This is a very special time for her.
She is growing up into a lovely young woman. It is great to be a part of her life and see her when we can. Unfortunately, that isn’t as often as I’d like. I hope to see my niece and her family very soon as well!!
Several road trips for me, that’s for sure!!!
Instead today, I had lunch with two friends who are in town for a writer’s seminar. It was great to see them and catch up from last year. The three of us met at last year’s seminar and instantly clicked. Since I was supposed to have other plans, I wasn’t able to attend the seminar.
Have you ever met people who you clicked with? I remember that happening when I was in school, but it has been a while since I have been a grown woman. It happened in MOPS and then last year at the seminar and with some friends from my high school reunion committee, and a few other times in life. But it is rare and wonderful.
These author friends and I have stayed in touch for a year. Seeing them in person was fantastic! We had so much to talk about at lunch. It was so much fun!!
Both of them have published books. I can’t wait to read them! I now have copies of the books and I am thrilled. I will be reading them and letting you know what I think. Should be fun! And, hope to join them as an author of a book!
After lunch, Kirk, Ian, and I took a walk around our neighborhood and then did some yard work. It was a lovely day and gave us a little taste of the spring weather that will be here soon — at least I hope so. And it was without the pollen!!
Tomorrow will be church and some time to relax, at least I hope so. I also want to get in touch with a few of my friends and family who I didn’t get to see this weekend.
My friends and my family are so very dear to me. I am fortunate to know such a variety of great people who have enriched my life. May I never take them for granted.
I wonder if this week will be more what I expect than this weekend was. I sure hope so, since the unexpected can sometimes be stressful. But, we tried to make the best of it!
