I really don't like clothes shopping. Changing rooms are exhausting and price tags are scary. But this past weekend was different.
I sat on a cozy couch, drinking champagne with 2 of my daughter's bridesmaids. Heidi did all the work. Oh, how I wish shopping could always be like this!
Less Than a Year Ago
I know, I said I would stop looking back all the time. But it's hard to avoid sometimes. Especially, since I have fond memories of last fall, when Heidi and I joined my future daughter-in-law on a dress shopping adventure!
On that wonderful day, Heidi and I watched Chali do all the glamorous work. We didn't know then, that Heidi would soon be engaged and both girls would be planning weddings!
I remember feeling so happily distracted that day. I still wasn't finished with chemo but I felt energized with the fun. When I look at this photo, I sigh... then laugh. "Hmm, I might need to toss that wig back on, if my hair doesn't show some improvement!" Who knows what my hair will be doing in November or March. I might be the one who needs the veil!
But luckily, the spotlight won't be on me.
And this past Saturday, I couldn't have been happier, having the focus on Heidi with her friends. I love my role.
What fun to listen to the girls' banter... their comments and humor. I can't stop being grateful for the timing. I'm so glad that it's July 2017... not 2016!
I feel healthy and energized just knowing what's ahead!
These 2 beautiful "brides" (and their handsome grooms) are making it hard for me to add to my Not Happy List!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
