Happy and sad.
Today is my best friend’s wedding. She is getting married to the man of her dreams. And I can’t/won’t be there to witness it.
You know when we were younger and we’re both struggling to get on with life, we would talk about her getting married and me on the front row, witnessing her union with the yet unknown man who would give her the one thing she’s always prayed for: a family of her own.
But that is not going to happen as she’s getting married in Chicago where she now resides with her groom. And since getting a visa is just next to impossible here in my country, going to Chicago to attend the wedding is not going to be.
I just feel so sad that I can’t see her walk down the aisle and say her vows.
Don’t get me wrong, I am very much happy for Shen and Kevin! I wish them all the best in life. And I always pray for their union to last them a lifetime!
I am just really sad I wouldn’t be there today.
Best wishes to my best friend and her man!
