A Wedding and Some Heartache

Wow, it has almost been a month since I have written! I just don't know how I let the time get away from me lol...anyways, yes, the title is true, it has been one crazy month! My younger sister was sealed on the 9th to a great man that I have come to respect even though I give him the hardest time (he's my brother now so it's required lol). The wedding and reception were beautiful and it was great to reconnect with his family who are long time friends of ours! It also put a few things into perspective and really made me realize how much I love my sister...and I have to admit that after all these years of Michelle's being jealous of me for this or for that, I believe that now I am a little jealous of her new life wishing that it were my turn, right here-RIGHT NOW!
Anyways, again the wedding was glorious and even though it was cold, windy, and the newlyweds left the reception in a somewhat blizzard...I feel that the Lord will bless our family and theirs for their righteous decision.
Sometimes, the Lord likes to throw curve balls though because soon after Michelle got what the doctor's believe to be mono lol which made it a little difficult on her new husband. I felt so sorry for them, though I remained at a distance because I certainly do not want to get it and then pass it to Blake lol...that would make his visit a lot bit bad!
Counting the days til my wedding (we are down to ten weeks!!!) and the day can't seem to come fast enough most times. Talking with Blake on the phone has been all right, but it's beginning to be really hard sometimes when you can't see or experience life with them. I hate feeling like we are living two seperate lives right now, but never fear, though the heartache has been rough...the Lord has provided his comfort and love and we are GETTING THROUGH IT!!! Thank goodness!
