This last week has been tough and joyful all at the same time. One of my best friends daughter got married this week and she was the most stunning bride. We had a storm on the evening of the wedding and the electricity had gone out at the church, but 10 minutes before she walked down the aisle the electricity came on. My husband said, "God is winking at us." The ceremony and celebration after was a joyous event and everything was beautiful and perfect, except for one thing. My friend whose daughter was getting married was not in attendence because cancer had taken her life a few years ago. My other good friend took over the role that she had promised and made this the most perfect wedding I have ever seen. I know Cathy would have been so proud and happy. Sometimes things that are joyous and beautiful can also be bittersweet.
