This made me smile, we all need a prayer like this sometimes! I hope you have a wonderful time at your friends wedding. You never know being there may remind you that the real reason we are all waiting is for the love that the wedding embodies and we really already have that in our relationships. Not sure if that makes sense and I totally get how hard the waiting is and have had plenty of tantrums myself but I have caught myself looking at elderly couples and thinking married or not I want that with SO it is worth all the waiting 🙂

Good luck! Sometimes we feel like we “deserve” something so much that being jealous is just a normal emotion. It sucks when someone else is doing something you want to do, but such is life. Your day will come and you’ll have that day to look forward to…that’s pretty exciting! I always say that the ancipation of whatever you want is usually better than actually having the thing you want!

I like this prayer! LOL

  This is how I feel today – God grant me the serenity to not punch the next person that walks up to me TODAY and asks me if I think my SO will propose on our up coming camping vacation. Geez If I can wait a few more days SO CAN YOU.

  End rant LOL

I was worried about the same things when I was in a wedding earlier this year! When the day came, though, I was so happy for my friend and having so much fun that it didn’t bother me at all. Good luck!

I do! I do! I’m pretty sure that the nextwedding invite SO and I get, I’ll be like “yes to the ceremony, HELL NO to the reception”.  I don’t think I could do a wedding reception out of my own selfishness and if anybody dared play the “you’re next” card, I’d lose it. 🙁

I need one of these for the holidays as well, I need to remind myself that although I’ve had some family issues which are making these holidays a little difficult that I’m still spending them with the man I love and hopefully many more. I’m not realistically anticipating a proposal and I know it’s going to sting a little, last Christmas I was kind of hoping for one but not nearly as “waiting” as I am now so it’ll be a bit different. Please grant me the serenity to enjoy our Christmas trip together, to not be ungrateful even if I’m feeling upset and to be thankful for everything that I have, even of it doesn’t include an engagement.

Hope all bees have a happy and healthy holiday season!
