Weddings are a time of happiness, joy and gathering of family and friends. Each wedding is different and the planning that goes into such an event can face many obstacles. But sometimes certain unexpected events can affect the planning of a wedding in greater ways than anyone could imagine and when this happens often times families and friends rally together to make the event more memorable than ever.
We just returned from vacationing in Greece with my mother in law, Joy, and her husband, Jim.
We had a great time crawling over piles of ancient rocks and soaking up the atmosphere in the cradle of Western Civilization.
And, we learned something about Joy.
If you need someone on your team who can decipher Greek and Roman mythology and the stories of the ancient Greeks, you want Joy. If your need is for someone steeped in British and American literature or European history, you want Joy.
I’m not a runner. In fact, I really don’t like running. But I will participate in the occasional 5K fundraisers. My first one actually popped up in my Facebook timeline from 5 years ago. I was running with 2 very athletic friends who really pushed me hard! Yep, I knew then running wasn’t my thing.
