This is not my clipboard, but I thought this was too cute. Photo courtesy of Flickr: JoyMadison.
I am posting; things went great. I loved today. Last night, I was a little tense trying to answer questions that I had never been asked before. Today, I had cheat cards clipped to my clipboard and was ready.
My clipboard became my dearest friend today. One in whom I could confide. She held all sorts of answers on etiquette that I had stashed away. She let me know exactly the time to have people in place. I actually felt like an airline sending grandparents down the runway at 3:57. You know, I couldn't have done it without Clip. She was my support to lean on as I ran, yes ran up and down stairs, down hallways, and stood clutching as I told a gorgeous bride and her daddy it was time. Clip was there with me through it all. Someone tried to take her from me. Can you believe it? What would I have done? No Clip stayed close to me the whole time even through the reception.
One hard thing was asking the parents of a crying baby to bring her out if she didn't quit crying. I felt horrible! They took her out once and came back in with her. After the second crying is when I asked for them to exit, but she quickly quit crying and so she remained. Whatever.
I learned a lot. I definitely have things I would have done differently, but overall I am thankful all went as well as it did-all God, not me. Her mom was extremely calm, which helped me BIG time! I wasn't sure how long the chiming of the hour would last. The doors probably looked schizophrenic, but they opened all the way(finally) to a princess ready to meet the man of her dreams.
I am honored to have been asked to be a part of such a special day! I am exhausted, but I was one little piece of a covenant that was made between two special people before the Lord. I joke about Clip, but the Lord walked us through today. Weddings are a great way for us to remember Him. I also love thinking about being the bride. I loved every single minute of my wedding! I hope that she enjoyed her day as much as I did mine.
Someone asked me if I would do this again. By George, I think I would.
