It's hard to believe it has been a full month since I watched a man lose his life. I'm in a much better place than I was then. It still hurts to think about it, to see those images flash through my mind again, but I know I'm fortunate that we were where we were. That we witnessed it, instead of being involved in it.
I can't say I'm walking away with a better appreciation for life. My own close-calls taught me that already. But I am certainly feeling that relationships are more precious, that I need to make the most of every relationship because you never know when it will end.
The mass amount of weddings are almost over. I finished editing the photos that I previewed before on here, Scott's cousin's wedding was absolutely beautiful, and my sister's wedding was AMAZING. I'll admit, I cried quite a few times, and I definitely danced like a madwoman (there may have been a chicken dance... and the macarena at some point). My sister looked absolutely beautiful, and my brother did a fantastic job officiating the ceremony.
There are also some good things that have been happening. I was 'hired' as a Freelance Business Reporter for one of our local newspapers and have written a few articles for them so far, and another potential opportunity may be popping up soon, so prayers and crossed fingers would be appreciated for that.
Our Stargate campaign is going way better than I ever would have thought it would, as we are nearing 1300 likes on Facebook, and have met a few people through it that have connections that could help us.
