What a wonderful world...

I just got back from NY after the most wonderful wedding. I think that's the most fun I've ever had at a wedding, including my own! Beautiful ceremony, smiles and tears of joy, lovely music, great food, lots of dancing; what more could one wish for? But the best part was to see my brother standing there under the canopy with his beautiful bride, wearing the happiest expression I've ever seen on his face. I was trying to hard not to cry during the ceremony, and what happens? My calm and phlegmatic brother starts crying while saying his vows!

I was very pleasantly surprised, too, to find that I was not only able to stay up past midnight, but also to dance almost every other song! I really didn't think I could do it, but I just gave it a shot, and it turns out I could. I'm still paying for it with aches and pains, but it was SOOO worth it!

During the week, we also got a chance to visit with friends and family, some of whom I haven't seen in... forever. In fact, my cousin Elaine was there, and I don't think I've seen her since we were both kids. Yes, that was a LONG time ago, but let's not go there... I also got to visit with my aunt and uncle (fun and fascinating people; my aunt is a successful artist and art teacher and a real hoot as well), and my other cousin and his family (he has a 13 year old daughter who's taller than me!). I was reminded of what an extraordinary family I am part of, and I'm so happy that we're now part of another incredible family, too. What a combination!

I will try to make this short as possible. In July I found out that my husband of almost 17yrs was having an affair and he actually brought this woman to my home. I was devestated to say the least. I met my husband 18yrs ago and he swept me off my feet and we got married 11months after we met. We had a great marriage (I thought) we have two beautiful boys. In 2015 we moved 800 miles away to a very small town due to his job. I quit my high paying job at a company that I had worked at for 14yrs to move away from my family and job/career to be a stay at home mom. Then here we are 2 and 1/2 years later going through a divorce and no job. I felt schizophrenic going through all of these emotions from acceptance, to denial, to how can this be and back again. I tried all the best effort i could to get him back from this woman whom he was havingan affiar with, and make him see how much i love to be with him. but he insisted he never wanted to be with me anymore. Its was almost 4 months since he started living with this other woman, then i decided to use Dr joy spells for help because i had no other choice and i felt everything was lost to me. I had the most wonderful and happy marriage after using his spell in just 24 hours, and that was how my marital life was fixed back to its right track. If you are one of the people who is in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged (and you can only determine that by being very honest with yourself), believe me…there IS light at the end of this tunnel.

I'm a lucky lady. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, a fantastic 25 year old son (I'm so proud of him!) a loving and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a job that I love, and... Parkinson's Disease. I was diagnosed in September 2006. That was a jolt, but I'm learning to deal with it.
