********************************************

have you ever seen that movie. muriel's wedding. not saying i'm muriel.

********************************************

i think it's about time i say some nice things about people. and by people, i mean my girlfriends a & d.

a & d are not in my bridal party. but they're kind of awesome. gal pals who protect my very difficult heart and even more difficult mind. it's a tough job. but they do it. and have done it for almost a decade.

sadly, after college, Life never had plans to let the 3 of us to live within 3000 miles of each other. but we've managed to get together at least once every 1-2 years. either in LA or in new england or some random destination in europe.

anyways, all this just to tell you that a & d just booked their trips and are coming to the wedding.

and that i'm so happy, i could almost burst.

me. burst. imagine.

Thank GOD for friends! One of D's friends from California called last night and was soooo excited for us.
Then you have the "other" kind of folks. My sister gave Mother dearest my wedding invitation. She didn't look at it she didn't say thank you, she didn't say ANYTHING. Just shoved it in her purse and walked away. I keep hoping at some point in my life she'll treat me with some semblance of motherlyness. I'm 42 and it hasn't happened yet. Why do I keep doing this to myself.
I just have to remind myself what TOTALLY AMAZING FRIENDS I HAVE SURROUNDED MYSELF WITH.

They say "friends are the family you make yourself." Alternately, I've also heard "friends are the family God forgot to give us" but I don't like the religion aspect built into the quote.

Anyhow, you can't choose your family but thank goodness you can find good friends.
