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.
