Wedding Countdown Day 7


Today was another beautiful Saturday.  Gulp.  I have the 10 day weather forecast on my favorites bar and have just about worn out the poor website.  So far, so good, though.  A minute ago, the August 13th forecast called for a partly sunny day with a high of 77 degrees.  I’ll take it. 

Rain or shine, the show will go on.  And the thing that I am most looking forward to is having family all together.  In a few days, our daughter and her husband will be midwest bound.  I cannot wait to wrap my arms around her and whisper sweet grandma-words to my first grandchild growing inside.  How I love having all my little birdies back in the nest for a little while.  My brothers and sister, nieces and nephews, and my aunt will come.  And many friends will share the day.

There will be some empty places, though: Grandpa O. and my dad will be missed:  also my mom, who died when I was only thirteen.   It hits me once again how thankful I am to be able to witness these family milestones.  What a blessing to see all my kids grow into adulthood and watch them launch into life.  To be together – that’s all that matters, really.

Who cares about the weather?  (I just checked – partly cloudy and 76.)

  1. Partly cloudy, mid 70s…I’m neither a weather reporter nor a wedding planner, but to this ordinary girl, that sounds like the perfect day to get married and be outside. 🙂 So so excited for cousin Anna’s wedding!! I wish we could be there to celebrate with you all! But I’m glad that the Vegas Overliens will be well-represented! 7 more days!! Congratulations Anna! And Aunt Dinah: You rock!
