Wow! It has been awhile since I have written an entry. I guess I have been just a little overwhelmed lately, and when I get overwhelmed I don't do much of anything, especially write journal entries. I just freeze up.
Actually, I have been doing a lot, for my weddidng. But making wedding plans is quite daunting, and it is stretching me some. It is making me do things that are a little out of my element. But this is a good thing. Normally just making a phone call is hard for me, so making phone calls to the priest, the organist, somebody to sing for my wedding, etc. is a lot. It is causing me both anxiety and making me stronger, lol.
So I am excited about being married soon. It is less than two weeks away!
The retreat we went on was wonderful. I was worried at first but it turned out to be fantastic. We learned so much. I am glad we did the family trees because I did not know who my ancestors were. We also did something called a genogram of our family. In it we could see different kinds of problems that ran in our families. The purpose of that was to avoid making the same mistakes. We also did some exercises to decide who was going to do what in the marriage (how the finances would be handled, etc.). We talked about what traditions we wanted to have when it came to our faith. Whether we wanted to say grace together, read the Bible together every day, etc. We had a lot of quiet time to discuss with our fiances very many topics. It was a very productive retreat.
Well, that's it for now, except to say that today (well, really Sunday) we had large snowflakes falling to the ground and sticking! Who would have thought snow in April? Now, it had better not snow on my wedding day. I don't think a blue coat will go with my wedding dress, lol!
