- Wedding: November 2011
I was talking to my coworkers today about the stress of my wedding today. They are so sweet to me, and I love them to death.
I was telling them about a really really bad fight my mom and I got into last week and how we aren’t talking right now. I tried telling her how I felt and she said “well then I guess you know how I feel.” With everything that’s happened between the two of us in my life, this might just be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
Anyways, one girl I was working with said “That’s just not right. That’s awful”
I said “This changes what we were going to do for our centerpieces, we are broke and can’t afford the simple lanterns we want. I don’t know where to have my bridal shower now/”
My other coworker said, “What were you thinking of for your centerpieces. What are you colors? I love doing this stuff and it’s your wedding and I want to help you out.” He said he was going to go out looking around at supplies, email me photos on Facebook of what he had thought I might like, I say yay or nay, and we work from there.
The girl said “I might be able to host your bridal shower at my house.” And then the tears started coming.
It’s so wonderful to have support from those who aren’t obligated to love me, when my own family can’t stand behind me or anything I do. It’s amazing to feel so loved, and so cared for when I’m overwhelmed with feelings of hurt.
I have no idea what I would do without them in my life. Seriously.
