It was an emotional wedding for sure. Actually, I can say the most emotional wedding I've ever been a part of. First there are the challenges Greg's mom faced, raising three kids on her own. Then the tragic passing of Mr. Lee when all of his kids were very young. Seeing all of the families there, all celebrating in the union of one new family was heartwarming. Greg and Sarah deserved to be honored by so many great people, and they were. Of course, Greg and Sarah both had eloquent words for each other. And then Greg said a little about each of his groomsmen. I was pretty much in tears throughout the entire rehearsal dinner. It was beautiful.
I was also able to share in the friendship of some dear old friends and several new ones. Any chance I have to visit with my old skool Winston-Salem peeps is totally enjoyable. We have a great bond. There are about eight of us from high school that still keep in touch. I have some great friends from college, no doubt, but my W-S peeps will always have a special place in my heart. I was fortunate enough to not only have Erich and Greg there, but Newp, Kacie, Karin and Scottie. It was an honor to be around them all. They have always been a tremendous support system. I'm blessed.
It was an emotional weekend, yet it was amazing. I say this often, but I always admit it every chance I get ... I am very lucky!
