Memoir Monday ~ The Week Before....


Here at Chateau Creative Soul, we are in crazy mode. Our son's wedding day is T-minus six days and counting. Prayers are being said for good weather for the outdoor ceremony....stacks of wedding decor materials are multiplying....and the lists of things to be done seems to be getting longer, not shorter.

Thus, the inspiration for today's Memoir Monday. When have you been 'behind the scenes' of a big deal family event--a wedding, an anniversary, a birthday, a reunion, a holiday dinner....? What craziness happened? Who forgot to order something important? What were the costs involved? What did you make or create just for the event? Don't forget to detail the food and clothing.

Fifty years from now, your grandchildren will appreciate your memoir.

Each time I run across something on creativity, I think of you and your wonderful, inspirational blog! Today, I read this quote and knew you would enjoy it. It is from MARRY YOUR MUSE by Jan Phillips:
"To create is to make something whole from the pieces of our lives and, in the process, to become more whole ourselves. It is a healing act, a leave-taking from the chaos as we move from the choppy surface toward the stillness of the center."

My very best wishes for a beautiful, joyous wedding!

Seven years ago, Ray and I were in San Diego in a lovely garden waiting for the bride to arrive so Kevin, standing tall and a tad nervous in his spiffy Marine attire, could get married. Guests mingled. We chatted. One hour hour late to her own wedding, the bride Maria arrived looking beautiful and said "I do". Running late ever since. But it all worked out.
