Wow, I use that word a lot! For good things, for great things, for all sorts of things. This "wow" is for my feeling of being overwhelmed. It comes and goes in waves on certain days. Maybe you know what I mean in trying to run a household with 3 boys and a puppy? Adding to the regular day to day is an exciting event coming up this one and only little sister is getting married (pictured above). The wedding is in Canmore so we are heading there tomorrow. I am the matron of honour and also the official "photographer" for the wedding. I have never taken on such a responsibility but am excited about it...well sort of...sort of stressed and sort of excited and at the same time I want to be able to enjoy the day and evening with family but not sure how that is all going to work out. And with our 8.75 year old, our 2 and 1 year old I am just starting to panic. We are sooo blessed to have Wes' parents come to Canmore on Saturday and help watch the little guys for us.

I am not usually the worrying type, but overwhelmed kind yes that I am....just ask my husband. I have to go and get my toe nails repainted tomorrow morning before we leave becaue the shade of red I chose ended up being a fushia color in the color in the sun...totally clashes with my black and red shoes...*sigh* Give me a minute here just to give all my worries to the Lord for He will sustain me and He has the power to make Saturday a most extrememly beautiful day for everyone. I pray that His hand is at work throughout our weekend keeping all family and friends travelling to Canmore safe. I pray that Shawn and Amanda feel a peace that only He can provide in enjoying their day together. I thank the good Lord for Shawn coming into Amanda and Trysten's life!
On a most wonderful note, I got an amazing present today from "My Boyz"....well I have received a couple this week but this one took me for a complete surprise. When I went to have a little snooze this afternoon there was a box under my pillow that held a beautiful necklace with diamond pendant on it. I had not been able to find a necklace to wear with my dress for the wedding that looked just right. My husband is sooo incredibly good to me. Thank you my love, thank you!!
