Today I am going to a wedding by myself, for the first time ever. My first thought is of sadness, since I am going through a divorce. My second thought is of loneliness since I’m going to it alone. I wonder how I’ll make it through the day emotionally. My third thought is of course happiness for the couple starting a new life together. It gives me hope that I will find happiness in my future as well…..
Well, I made it through the day. The wedding was beautiful, the venue was perfect, the food was great. I only got a little emotional when the DJ played the game of who has been married the longest and there was a sweet older couple who has been married for 47 years. Some people are fortunate to have a single companion for a really long time. That ship has sailed for me. Oh well.

I still have yet to go to a wedding. Thankfully. I’m proud you made it through, but I too would have been an emotional wreck by the time it was over.
We did go to a wedding after we filed for divorce (just not since)… the girl was barely 19/20? the guy was his cousin and 27. They acted like getting married was an effin joke. As I sat there with my son.. staring at my future EX husband standing up on stage as the best man. I got so mad several times.
That didn’t sound fun. Weddings and funerals bring up so many emotions. Luckily, it’s just one day out of our lives.

No joke. Those days require a little ice cream and a funny movie
