Joy and Kindness

JThis evening I’m writing a make-up post for the ones I missed on Friday and Saturday. Friday I was overwhelmed with work and preparation for a friend’s wedding and Saturday I was just plain exhausted after work. Looking back, I should have planned those posts in advance but I’ll know better going forward.

Joy and kindness are my words for the letters J and K.


KI saw much of both of these things this weekend. There was so much joy on my friend’s face as she walked down the aisle on Friday; and again later at her reception, which was full of close friends and family members. Her husband was nice, her daughter was full of energy, and the people around me were all very kind and easy to talk to.

The funny part being that I knew a lot of them, but hadn’t seen them in so many years they didn’t recognize me. It’s funny how the adults in your life never look different – but the kids (me, even though I’m 33 now) change so much the adults no longer recognize them. It turned out to be a lot of fun.

To be fair, I wasn’t looking forward to going because I had to go alone. I’m so glad I did, though. It was worth the effort!
