Good morning, Friday! I had other plans for the blog today…I have so many fun things to share. But like I did for a brief time this week, I’m taking a breather. I can’t even count the number of ways my life has been blessed recently…seriously, the words of support and encouragement that have been coming in mean so much. At the same time, I can’t remember if I’ve ever felt so overwhelmed, and that itself is taking a wee bit of a toll on me, if I’m being honest. Overwhelmed in all the best ways, but still. The greatest thing right now is this promise from God, right up there with how he listens to our prayers.
I know he was listening when I prayed for renewal because a quick girls’ trip to Seattle did just that. The original and main intent was to get my engagement ring sized, and that had to be done through the original jeweller in the states. It worked out perfectly that my sister and two girlfriends could come along and so off we went for a night in the city. And did we ever have fun. And laugh. And talk too loud. And eat good food and drink lovely, red wine with yummy chocolate and maybe did a little shopping as well. Much bonding was had, and those times are ones I’m going to hold on to as things continue to build, so as I’m about to go crazy, I’ll remember laughing til it hurts and thoroughly enjoying quality time with the girls.
And here’s a bit of news! Monday morning, Shane and I will be on LIVE TV…Global News to be exact! I’m actually trying not to think too much about it, trying not to think of how nerve wracking it will be or imagine myself on camera…ah! But really, it’s such a fun opportunity. Somehow, they got ahold of our engagement story and photos and so they put a call out to us on air yesterday morning. Can’t believe it! Feel free to tune in around 8:20 am…or not, I might be too nervous. Shane said something about a Ron Burgundy outfit so then again, all attention will be on him anyway.
Happy weekend :)
