~Our Renewals~ Our wedding was so perfect on the beach of Maui at the Kaanapali Beach in L...
So I'll do the bad first:
Nearly no one from my side will be there. From my side my mother, my sister, my aunt Darlene, my friend Meaghan, my MOH, my moms friends Tina and Sydnee will be there. It's likely my grandmother won't come. She's in her 80's and has a cold. If she doesn't come my aunt Bonita won't come. My aunt Marilyn is gone away, my aunt Janice is working, my other grandmother doesn't have a drive without Janice, and lives 2 hours away. Four of my friends can't make it. :( Needless to say that's disapointing.
The good news:
I'm actually okay with it now. I thought I was going to cry, and I was on the verge of tears. I called my friend Meaghan, we haven't spoken in a while, but just talking and bitching with her made me feel better about it. I realized I may have been being a bit selfish, and that my shower is not as important as the wedding. I was feeling like they didn't care enough about me to come to the shower, but I shouldn't think like that. Some of them have really good reasons not to be there.
I realized I am so lucky to have Donna and her family as my FIL's. They're so wonderful for planning my shower, and I am so grateful to them. They didn't make me feel bad once that they wound up doing it, and instead they seemed more than happy to, and that makes me really glad to be part of their family.
