- Wedding: February 2011
So bees, it just hit me. Literally. Right now. That yes, today is my bridal shower … and I picked out an outfit yesterday, did my nails, helped my Maid/Matron of Honor with some things, (though I know I wasn’t supposed to, she never asked ; she’s just doing so much, and I know it … I just HAD to stop by and give a hand). But, still, this seemed to have just hit me (and hard).
See, that’s just it. It’s never really been about me. I’m a loud, sociable person – but, I’m a big supporter of making people smile. It’s what makes ME happy, to know I was the one who did it. 🙂 Thus, I’m not used to it being about me. Any party I’ve been center (such as birthdays, graduations, etc) ; I’ve thrown and planned, so I don’t feel bad when the cake comes out with my name on it.
It starts at 4pm, it’s 1pm now. I’m relaxing (when I know there are atleast 5 people running around) and I feel as though I pick up the phone and see if I can offer my help. Though I know I’ll be responded with “noooo, of course not! Relax!” and “please!! don’t you dare!” and even one or two with actually snap at me for even the thought. lol That’s the cuban-side. 😉
Thanks for letting me share my thoughts and feelings. And for all the bees who have showers coming up … enjoy the day with all of your loved ones. I will definitely try and take my own advice. 🙂
