A Word On Love
I have found the one in whom my soul delights.
~Song Of Solomon
Friends, I hope your holiday weekend was wonderful. Regrettably, I am late getting this post done. Up until a few moments ago I really didn’t think it was going to happen. I continue to be in the throes of lupus. I am losing a lot of hair. I am bruising a lot. My joints ache and my muscles burn. My energy just isn’t there. I have some personal projects to work on away from this place, and I have very little left for just about everything else. Life has very much become a one-thing-at-a-time proposition.
Needless to say, I don’t know what to expect of myself this week, and for that matter I don’t know what to expect of myself for the foreseeable future. I’m taking things one day at a time.
There is good news. Awesome, amazing, beautiful news actually. I got to end my weekend with an immensely joyful heart. One of my dearest friends in this world told me that she is now engaged to be married. In sharing her happiness as she gave me this news, I am reminded of my own blessings. I realized, again, that in matters of love, we need to trust and know that things unfold exactly as they are meant to.
This journey truly is all about love, and I am so thankful that it is mine in abundance. With my family, my friends, and with my beautiful husband.
So now I have a late fall wedding to look forward to. I am so ridiculously excited. I literally feel like I’ve been floating in joy since she told me two days ago. I want to be well so I can be there for her for whatever she needs between now and then. And I will not miss her big day for the world.
Love is truly beautiful.
I wish you and your beloved the happiest life and love imaginable.
I am so happy to call you “friend.”
Have a gorgeous week, everyone.
