I just so happened to have found a mother of the bride dress that would be just perfect
Actually.....I have found my dress... and let me tell you it wasn't easy...
As well as this one.....It kind of boggles the mind..
It has it all.. the purple and lilac accents ( which are her colors ) go well with the pink paper wedding bell look of the dress..
Yeah.. it's getting down to the wire around here..
I just take a deep breath and remind myself somehow.. someway.. it will all work out..
In 24 days one way or another it will all come together..

Someone you thought would never lie to you does
In fairness I have to say.. I think she almost liked that M.O. it may have given her the excuse not to connect with others..
Keeping in mind that this same woman could detect the displacement of HER pencil within centimeters.. or if HER eraser had been worn down more than she would have used.. as well as the quantity of staples left in HER stapler. She did HER job well and felt that no else could or SHOULD do it as well.

In an effort to be a little more thought provoking and in an effort to add a little substance...
I have decided to cover some idea's found Here:Let's take them one at a time.. shall we?
1.EVERYONE FEELS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, JUST NOT AT THE SAME TIME.
So true.. so so true.
I have found that we are all more alike.. then we are different.It's just that we come into our similarities at different times in our life.
An example would be Death. and Life...
I have been going to funerals since the age of seven so I thought I knew what death was all about.
I mean I had seen the very old die and even the very young.
I knew that the body there in the casket was only the shell of someone I had known and had probably loved.
But...It wasn't until the death of my own father that I truly understood what death meant.
Now when I go to a funeral.. I get it. I understand what death means.. because that experience has touched me..
Interestingly enough I am also fully aware that as much as I may think I know what death is.. All I have to do is look into the faces of some of my friends who have lost Both parents.. A loss so great that even at our age makes them feel like orphans... some who have lost siblings or even more unfathomable children. The Great gaping hole of loss and thoughts of what if.. are unimaginable.
Do I understand death?
To some degree yes... but I know that there are other faces of death out there.. Some are inevitable.. Some I hope I NEVER see.
Same holds true for life.. I thought I understood kids ..
My Mom had to have a very dangerous operation when we were very young..She had to rely on help...not only from a woman who came in for a while after the surgery but also on me...because of that surgery and the age difference between me and my siblings..(I am 6 and 8 years older) I had to help care for and raise my brother and sister.
So.... in my naivete..I thought I pretty much knew what having kids was all about.
I knew all about the basics..Feeding.. diapering..comforting and disciplining..that sort of thing... but it wasn't until I had my own .. that I REALLY knew what having kids was all about.
Just about every feeling out there is or will be shared by us all....just not at the same time.
Love.. Hate.. Jealousy.. Envy.. Happiness.. Sadness.. Boredom... Thrill.. Birth ... Death.. The list goes on and on.
It is really true when they say.. Until you walk in someone else's shoes ....You do not know how they feel.
Virtually EVERY experience can not truly be understood until.You go through it yourself.
You may THINK you know but you don't.
So I try to keep this in mind every day..
We really don't know what someone else is going through Do we?
Day to day life happens and we can only "GUESS" how people feel.
Sometimes we are aware of the circumstances and situations that people are facing which in our minds help us feel empathy... and that is all well and good.. But more often we don't...
It isn't until we are faced with the same or similar situation that we see with new eyes(and heart)
This should give us some consolation..
Because basically....We really are more alike then different and...
We are all just doing the best we can.
I'll try to remember all this when someone is acting like a Jack hole...
Because inevitably .. One day (probably sooner rather then later )it will be my turn to act like a Jack hole.So...I guess I'll cut them some slack.
2.PEOPLE ARE UNPREDICTABLE.
