Updates, Gratitude & Congratulations

Thanks to everyone for the kind phone calls, texts, e-mails and facebook messages in response to the latest bump in the wedding road. I've been overwhelmed by the support - I'll try to get back to everyone individually in some way, but for right now know that I feel so blessed to have each of you in my life.

Bruce and I are doing a lot better. This isn't over - Bruce and his parents have been on the phone with friends and family who are in the military to understand why exactly Jason's orders were changed and if there is anything that can be done to move his report date back three days. A friend of Bruce's is a rising senior at West Point and he suggested talking to the chaplain, so I think that's where they are now. None of us have given up hope yet - and it's not as if Jason is going to be "replaced" if he can't be in the wedding. He's Bruce's best man and will be if he's in Connecticut or Wisconsin for the actual wedding.

In other news - the weather has been absolutely BEAUTIFUL in Atlanta the past couple of days!! I'm pretty sure it doesn't get much better than this. High fifties and low sixties in the morning, low-mid seventies during the day, sunny with blue skies and white puffy clouds, and just enough wind to make long walks perfect. I've been walking to and from work all week. It's about 2 1/2 miles one way, mostly up and down hills - it's felt great, but I think I'm starting to get shin splints!! I haven't been walking in sneakers because I feel the need to look cute while walking and I don't think sneakers with my work clothes is at all cute - It's not like I've been walking in my grandiose spike heels, but I'm certainly not lacing up my asics, either. Ah, the price to pay when you desire cuteness in your life.

I also need to give a quick shout out and big CONGRATULATIONS to my sister, Bethany - she graduated from the Columbia School of Social Work today with an MSW (Masters of Social Work)!! And if graduating from the Ivy Leagues isn't enough - she has a full-time job secured for next year!! YAY!!!!! Bethany - I wish I could have been there to see you cross the stage and hold tight to that diploma, but I'll see you soon!! I love you!!

Grace & Peace,
