Made It!

This weekend is FINALLY over. I didn’t think I would make it through. But I did, bless the Lord. The Mother-Daughter Breakfast was a success! Hallelujah! It really was beautiful. I don’t think I can ever do it again. Haha. I am overwhelmed. I want to cry. I want to sleep for days. I am overcome. My stomach is sick. Everything came down to the wire! Literally! Got me all in my nerves. I mean, it was beautiful… And I need a B.R.E.A.K. a good cry and a break. Like not get out of bed all day. I was looking forward to Sunday dinner with the kids. But, alas, there was a funeral and I was tasked with setting up the repast at the home.. I like the wife, so I did it… All things into the Lord, right?

I must believe that people would do the same for me… Not that I ask for anything… Not in my nature, but one day, I might have to ask for something. You never know… But that’s not why I do it… I truly enjoy serving… This week just took a lot out of me! Maybe it was the public speaking? Maybe it was all the feels? Maybe it was just – I don’t know. I am just overcome, the event is done! Now, I can rest. Now I am sick. I feel sick to my stomach. I feel as though I can puke.

Good things that came out of the weekend:

I have been adopted! Yes, Mother Patricia Pollard wrote me a beautiful speech, and has adopted me! I cried. She had me stand and everything! Haha. It was really sweet. I think I adopted her when she told me she was “proud” of me, some months back.

The story I wrote with First Lady, her story, was a success! People laughed, cried! I almost cried. It was beautiful!

Me and my girls had a wonderful time together… It was so special. I was able to “pass a legacy to them.” I even came home and elaborated upon it… And extended it to my son…

I invited my kids’ stepmom and her daughter… She had a great time. It’s nice to be able to enjoy sweet moments like that together. And what a blessing we both received! I watched her out of the corner of my eye. She teared up often, but never let them fall. Hopefully, this begins the track for peace…

People enjoyed the photo booth! The background was a huge hit… I wish it was wider… For the larger groups… I didn’t think about that…

In any case, it’s over, for that I am glad. Time to slink away into the abyss, and nurse myself well again. These things take so much out of introverts. People don’t understand! Think it’s why I’m sick… Ah well.. Two days to recover before I head back to work…
