Wedding Postponed

Do you ever feel like the world is working against you? I have been in that constant state for about 11 months now. The blows just keep coming. Just when you think there is something good to hold onto, it gets ripped away. Sorry…just feeling a little raw at this point. The wedding has been postponed. Both Joe and Michelle are COVID-19 positive. The big, beautiful wedding they have been planning and I have been escaping to when my days have gotten dark, has been scrapped. I don’t know what their plans will be from here on out. We will just wait and see. For now, I am trying to figure out what I am going to do with all the wedding and rehearsal dinner stuff I planned to surprise them with that now are null and void and have the wrong dates on them. I am pleased to say that they are both handling this much better than I am. I am crushed, but that is my selfish human side that has been literally living for this event since my diagnosis. Ah well, I am sure this feeling will pass as they move on to celebrate when and where they can. They both have cold symptoms but are doing fine and quarantining at home with their dogs. I am sure they will have plenty of time together over the next few weeks to figure out a plan that works for them.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear this. That sucks. I’ll be praying for a speedy recovery for both of them and for everything to be able to be re-arranged beautifully.


  2. Oh Cyndi, how heartbreaking and disappointing! I can see why it would take a time of reeling from this news! Yes, the 1 -2 punch for you… Sending you a big, big hug, and prayers. πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜©πŸ˜«πŸ˜–πŸ˜€πŸ˜³πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

  3. I know you will figure it out! Slash through the date and add new “covid” date. This will be something all of you will remember and laugh at in time. I’ll pray that Joe and Michelle get over this and have no lasting illness. All in God’s plan and time.


  4. Argh!!!! πŸ˜²πŸ˜–πŸ˜€That is just awful – maddening, with all the emotional – and practical -preparation you’d put into this. Of COURSE it’s wildly disappointing. We will just have to pray that you can keep trucking on until when the wedding actually does take place. However, Mary and I are so pleased that they got the results to you so soon about the positive outcome from chemo, so I did want to congratulate you on that. Chin up, sister! πŸ’–


  5. I am so incredibly sorry. I can’t even imagine the heartache. I can assure you that you will be in constant prayers by me. God has not failed you yet. He cannot and I will not fail you. Warrior, It is OK to say you’re tired. I ask God to hold you in the Palm of his hand and give you the peace only he can bring


  6. I am so sorry to hear this. You have done incredibly well to get where you are and the wedding was a wonderful thing to keep your focus on. Hang in there. Take time to grieve the loss of your special day and know that there really will be other great things coming your way. You and your family are in our prayers. πŸ’œ


  7. I’m so sorry to hear this!! I know how much you were looking forward to the wedding. Take all the time you need to be disappointed; this is a bummer.

    Praying that their recovery is quick and complete and they’re able to reschedule soon!


  8. This is so sad. I keep thinking this should be a bad dream – not reality! My heart is hurting for you so much – and for them! I can only imagine how disappointed you all were when they first found out. I hope and pray they recover quickly – and that they are able to get a new wedding date and everything will fall into place – I just know it will be absolutely lovely.


  9. I’m so very sorry, Cyndi! I know how very heartbreaking this news must be for you. As we all know, God does everything for a reason and even though we don’t always understand what that reason is; we do know that he works everything for the better. I am confident that Joe and Michelle will come through this roadblock of Covid with flying colors and the wedding will go on, not at the same time or quite as planned; but it will be beautiful and you will be there celebrating with them. Trust in the Lord and he will guide you through this.
