As the Bangles would say, “…it’s just another manic monday – whoa-o-o”. It was a good weekend, I didn’t get anything done that I was supposed to but I got spend some time with some people that mean the world to me and I don’t get to see them all that often. I would shirk my duties anytime to spend time with family and friends.
A little shout out to Rosanne and Laurie, “Lookin’ good Mama’s, Lookin’ Good”!
Well, it is a mere 3 days away until the big event and I am really pumped, I fully expect the days leading up to it to be the longest days of my life. If I could I would jump up on the table and do it now. Waiting is so hard…sigh..! I have no fears at this point, I suppose I could get some fear between now and Thursday (since everyone keeps telling me I should have some, so that I can then expel the fear and be at peace…WTF, can’t I just skip the fear and go straight to peace?) but I really don’t think so…LOL. I am already at complete peace with my decision…
I want to add a word for the friends and family that have to deal with me everyday…thank you. Thank you for making this process so much less scary than it could have been. Thank you for worrying about me and being scared for me but giving me your support anyway. Thanks for loving me through the years when I couldn’t love myself and above all, thank you for seeing me as: the sister, the daughter, the cousin, the friend and the aunt instead of the little fat girl that I saw in the mirror. Thank you for always believing that I had the talent, the generosity of spirit, the humor and the kindness to go further in life, than I thought I could. Thank you for your silent prayers and your immeasurable acts of love over the years. Please know that they did not go unnoticed or unappreciated even if I didn’t always show it.
I love you all so very much…Just Jil
