Bad day today

Hi, I hardly slept last night, I was worrying that I couldn’t give Celeste a special wedding and honeymoon, in my tiredness I upset her as well, Why does life all come down to money? 

Thanks for dropping in, take care.

  1. Hi,
    In the early morning yesterday when I left my apartment to go on a little photo adventure, the air was thick with fog. I almost turned back. I decided to drive slowly and see how it went. It was fascinating taking photos in the fog. Later driving home, the fog lifted. Fear is like fog. It clouds our minds and limits our vision and can make us stop in our tracks. I know what it is like to live on a tight budget and money is definitely useful. Love, though, is something else entirely. It is awe inspiring like the starry sky far out in the country away from the lights. All you need for a special wedding day is the two of you. Take a deep breath and keep the faith. It is going to be alright.

      1. Whenever we make changes in our lives fear shows up. It is insidious and as predictable as the sun rising each morning. The bigger the change the bigger the fear. I think that in order to have gotten this far with the adventure the two of you must have thought long and hard about being together and decided this is what you both really want. And so much so that you are willing to go through all the legal hassles to make it happen. Hold on to that thought. Put it up on a rock like a lighthouse at the edge of a stormy sea. Let it guide you through the fog. I have found that when I have bad days and fear is trying to stir up trouble in my mind that it is best to view it with detachment. “Yes. I hear you,” I say to the fear, “but I am not inclined to listen to you today. I have things to do.”

        I really like the 2nd and 3rd picture with the blue water, sky, and the puffy clouds. They are cheerful photos 🙂

  2. Sarah and Bob are right! It doesn’t all come down to money. I say that as a person who is often short of money. Celeste is choosing to be with you and that is what will make your wedding special, not any fancy trappings that cost money but don’t matter in the long run.

    I’m behind on my reading so I hope to find you in better spirits in your next posts. Cheers, L.

  3. When we got married, we were broke. We had our wedding in a registry office, then invited people back to our home where we shared sandwiches and cakes. My grand-daughters created our wedding cake. As dinner was approaching we got everyone to order the Chinese takeaway dish of their choice as this was a nice, cheap option for us and helped us keep a lid on our costs. Everyone appreciated it, it was a day of love and laughter (and one of the few sunny days in the UK that year!), so don’t worry about providing trimmings – the best is the love.

    1. Hi, thanks for sharing about your wedding, I wish eternal happiness to the both of you. I am looking forward to the sunshine, but I hope the heatwave is over before I get there, just a bit too hot for me 🙂

  4. ‘Money’ seems to be a universal issue… 😦 My husband and I also kept it very simple & ‘no frills.’ We simply registered our marriage at the town hall and had some lovely photos taken together. We wish you and your wife a wonderful life full of love and happiness 🙂
    Best wishes from Tokyo.
