Oh Boy, what a weekend! I knew it'd be grand.
But standard to life, events didn't all go as planned.
You see, a friend recently asked me to Be Maid of Honor.
And help with wedding details now quickly upon her.
I accepted and thought, "I'm in a wedding...That's new!"
Never expecting I'd also be sick with the flu.
It all started Wednesday; I went to bed early that night.
I thought extra rest would get me back feeling all-right.
But Thursday was awful. And work was quite busy.
I was freezing and coughing; to stand made me dizzy.
Friday was no different. I worked only four hours.
Next came rehearsal dinner and decorating with flowers.
The mother of the bride sent me home to get rest.
She said sleep would help...and I hoped she knew best.
But the following morning my voice disappeared.
It finally got better as the wedding time neared.
Although my head was adorned with red roses,
Compared to my coughing and blowing of noses,
I wasn't too pretty but it's the brides big day, Right?
All I craved was going to sleep for the night.
Now it's over and I'm glad the work's done.
Being in a wedding is hard but also it's fun.
With the heat and my flu as a bad combination
I can't remember if I gave them my congratulation.
Amber ~ may love always be in your life
David ~ take care of your beautiful wife.
When bad times creep up, remember your wedding
Your love; your vows; the direction your heading.
For better or worse, in sickness and health
In poverty's grasp or abounding in wealth,
May life give you moments to keep and to treasure
And here's to your love that it's too much to measure.
But when I say of weddings, "I'm sick!" and "I tire!"
I only speak of my health; can't call me a liar.
