My family has come

 
My Mom brought my Grandma's wedding dress
that I am wearing
God willing in two days.
Along with also came the bridesmaids dresses.
And three gifts from friends and family.
*
I've had insomnia again
but am hoping my head cold is on the way out.
*
We've got most things done
and lots of family to help.
*
And my sister and brother-in-law
brought the St. Phanourious icon
that one of my dear Romanian friends arranged for us
to be hand-painted.
*
We are getting married on St. Phanourious' day
(old calendar).
*
I ate at the park last night with my
Orthoman's family.
*
I am so happy to see my family...
Everything is coming together well and I hope to rest
a bit, if not sleep a bit more...

We have been praying for you and Daniel all week. Just managed to get back into Blogspot long enough to see the tantalising glimpse of Grandma's buttons! Miss Tilney says she cannot wait to see a likeness of Miss Cleo with flowers behind her ears and Miss Darcy hopes there were very many sardine canapes at your reception.
