Somewhere in between hospital stays, therapy, dirty laundry, seizures, meds, tube feedings, and oxygen…..
You have to live your life.
You have to celebrate the big things
Like Amy and Shawn tying the knot.
You have to gather the village….
Even if members of the village are having some issues.
Small issues, like an upset tummy
Or much bigger issues like TWO broken legs….
Or big issues like a herniated disk…
Which means you have to watch the ceremony like this….
Or like this….Our village seems to be a little worse for the wear and is now accepting applications for a Medicine Man/Woman, any takers?
Because even if you’re not on your ‘A’ game, how can you not celebrate when approached by the Father of the Bride?
Who just happens to be wearing his dancing shoes
And you hang out with people like this….
and of course Hubby Bubby
The rest of the Fam
My lovely ‘sister’…
And kindred spirit
Along the way you look out at this beautiful place and this beautiful time and even if your back isn’t quite right or you have not one but two broken legs or if you tummy is bloated and angry…..it doesn’t seem to matter as much.
This seems to matter a little more. Because it’s much nicer if we don’t have to do it on our own.
