The Sweetest Wedding

My sister was married this past friday. A monumental occassion of which our family siezed the opportunity to celebrate. We've been through trajedies that make other people shake their heads and wonder how our family survived such emotional pain. We survived and we thrive because we know the depth of loss as well as love. We are blessed. We know all of Heaven is with us each step of the way. I can't quite put into words how it feels to see someone you love with your entire heart, broken and then after a long time, come back to life healed, still scarred, but stronger and more beautiful than ever. There was a time I did not think she would make it, not after her loss....but she chose life and never gave up.
Also, if you are able to believe in Heaven, and I do from personal experience, you long for your loved ones in Heaven to be proud of you, to rejoice with you. I believe they celebrate our milestones.
The day before the wedding we decked out my house with flowers and the day of the wedding, the sun came out and stayed warm and sunny during the reception. We had tons of fun and if I could use one word to describe it all it would be "gratitude".
Love to you all.
