I am so confused...too much going on and not enough down time.   I performed a wedding this week...well sort of.  It was an emergency wedding b/c the bride's mother had just been diagnosed with cancer and was given only days.   So, it was in the hospital chapel and it was just like a real wedding.   She was dressed in white, there were bouquets, and was all so strange.    The reason is that it wasn't a legal wedding b/c there was no license,  it being a weekend and all.   The family was happy, the mothers seemed very pleased and so in the end 'who cares'? ... Life just seems so full of interesting turns.   I was very pleased and even privileged to be a part of it.  I received the call at 11:00 a.m. while shopping with my daughter.   I arrived at the hospital at 3:30 for the 4:00 wedding.   There was a time in my life that I couldn't imagine that I would have the temperament to pull that off, but it just seemed so doable and I didn't even stress.   My daughter and I had planned to go to lunch, so we still did.  

The confusion comes in when I try to make sense of what is going on in my life right now.   I have always believed that we live our lives in 'themes'.    I believe that God speaks to us through the events and people that are placed in our lives at any given time.   Over the past few weeks, I have been involved in so many different things, with so many different people, I wonder what it is I am suppose to be coming to understand.    In some ways I would say maybe I am just being given opportunities to see the important parts of life......but so far I am  missing the 'hatch' part.    I know that could be due to the age I am at, although there are a few babies looming on the horizon, but not directly related to me.   I have done many matches and some dispatches but not too many hatches.   Although I did do one baptism at the beginning of the year.  So, I think I may just have figured out what the theme is, living, important moments!!!!!! addition I have reconnected with family and that is also an important part of the living.....I guess I am being given the blessings of seeing what really is important in life.   Even still having lunch with my daughter was important and I had the grace to know that.    I don't think I am so confused least not for the moment :)

In other may never be aboe to connect all the dots but finding the dots can be fun in and of itself.
