Blogging and weddings

I started out so gung-ho on my blogging but as time went on, I stopped. When did life get so busy? About eight months ago when I started planning a wedding. Blogging had to take a backseat. Wedding bell blues took over. I must say that I totally let the wedding planning consume me. That's o.k. That's what it takes, especially at my age. I spent a lot of time trying to think what all was different about planning Katie's wedding in comparison to Amy and Missy's. It's my AGE. At 61, I have a little harder time remembering all there is to remember to do. Its getting there though. October 30th will roll in here in about 3 1/2 weeks. Whether I have everything done or not, it will come. If everyone gets fed at the reception will reflect on me but it has been hard to determine how many will be there. Two churches are involved since Bill is a pastor and Caleb's dad is a pastor. We just have to pretty much hope there will be enough. But you know, that's not what it's all about anyway. The important thing is if those two kids have their license, say their vows, and get pronounced husband and wife. That's the most important. Friends and family are nice and we do appreciate them and won't be able to do enough for them for all they have done for our kids. They still won't make a difference any way at all as to whether Katie and Caleb are married. You know, I could sweat the small stuff and worry my head off, or, I can give it to the Lord. After all, He changed water into wine at the first wedding in Cana. He multiplied the loaves and fishes when He fed the five thousand. He can certainly can take care of a few hundred people at a wedding in Clarkesville, even when the woman who planned the wedding is old!
