I have given up wondering the whys about life. It isn't worth the hassle to try and analyse life. What I do firmly believe is things happen for a reason.
Luckily for me my wonderful husband had not arranged anything for our first anniversary. Why lucky? I hear you ask. Well I received a telephone call from an acquaintenance from the internet who has done a lot for me asking if we would go to her wedding. I checked our diary and have nothing booked so what could be better than spending our wedding anniversary seeing someone else start their new life together as husband and wife. So that saves my husband the trouble of organising anything. I have always wanted to thank the couple in person for what they have done for me over the last three years. So to be invited to their wedding is a wonderful honour.
During the telephone conversation I asked about gifts as wedding etiquette states that gift lists should not be sent with the invitations. I know, that many people do this to save time with postage etc etc and it put brides in awkward situations. So having been in that position myself last year I thought I would break the ice and ask. The bride to be's answer was the same as mine was last year "we haven't thought about anything yet we just want people to be there".
So knowing I am going to a wedding I am excited at the prospect. I have told my husband I am determined not to use my wheelchair. We will take it in case I need it in the car but hopefully I will manage without it.
So I have a lot to look forward to what with the wedding, and a writers retreat this girl couldn't be happier.
Who knows I might even get a few short stories out of this little lot.
