Finally some good news

So the last few months -heck this whole planning- have just been so dramatic and I kept receiving bad news left and right. But today, we finally got words that our whole bridal party (from 6 different countries) got visas to come to the wedding.

It only took them like forever and I have no hair left on my head from pulling it so hard. LOL

I feel very vulnerable now that everyone knows the tiniest details of my personal life such as how much I make, my banking activities for the last 3 years, my housing, my jobs details, etc. since I had to provide it to all the embassies to get the visas...  But it was all for a good cause.

God is good and today I am very grateful!

    What great news.  God is good!!!   Thank God for all blessings, no matter how small.     Honestly, I am not looking forward to this whole visa issue.  I am still trying to finish ordering our invitations so that we can start sending out to our family and friends in Cameroon and Europe.  Unlike you, I don't have much hair, so I guess I would just go back to my favorite bad habit (nail-biting).  Ha! Ha!

    YAAAAYYYYY!!!!!! I am glad you got what you wanted in the end. But don't it urk you sometimes because these government folks is so nosey. This is a wedding not a top secret mission. goodness.... Nonetheless, I am happy you got your bridal party together. This is indeed a blessing.
