{Day 59}

The strands wove in and out making a glorious mass of curls.  Dainty little flowers with pearl centers were a beautiful compliment to her richly hued red, gold hair.  She was the picture of loveliness and womanly grace.  When did we go from being young girls to women?  It was very surreal for me as I watched her untie ribbons from packages and pull clouds of tissue paper from bags.  Approximately every 2 years since I was 14 I have been in a wedding.  This is year two and I am a bridesmaid for the 5th time.  I am very honored.

Looking at the picture above of the girls from one of the new orphanages makes me smile. Someday they too will go from girls to women.  Because you gave them the opportunity to have a future.  A future where they are educated and given skills to help them make a good life.  So please give at least $5 dollars today to continue this amazing work.

    Loveeeee this outfit! Those boots are so cute!!!
    That is so great that there is a photo of one of the new orphanages!!! That is so great that you have been in so many weddings!!! I always longed to be in people’s weddings. I was in my own seven years ago and just this year I was in my brother’s wedding. I was so blessed because I thought I’d never be in someone else’s!!! You are blessed to be in so many. that is a huge honor!

      I like this outfit too! It was perfect for our drizzling weather.
      Don’t those little ones just melt your heart?? I want to go over there right this second and give them a hug!
      Yeah I guess I have been in a few weddings. Well the most important wedding is your own! So you didn’t miss the most exciting thing! 🙂 I am very blessed and honored to have been able to stand by friends and family as different couples have committed their lives to one another.

    Your outfit reminds me a little of the book I am reading Elena right now, “Heidi”. So cute with old fashioned leanings.

    Wow, day 59 way to go! You are doing such a neat thing! I wish that I could do more than just pray, but my family and I are barely getting by. I just wanted to encourage you!

      Since I borrowed them I have no idea where my friend got them. Some little boutique I believe…sorry I can’t help you more. 🙁
