Last month, a friend finally walked down the aisle. She's a much younger friend but she got married later than I thought she would. She's more than 10 years younger than me and she was just a baby when we worked together. She was the secretary of a small tutorial center a friend started and there's only 5 of us teaching plus her. We were practically family since we all lived in the center as well. This girl became our faithful listener everytime one of us teachers had something going on in our lives and we needed to vent.
I was so happy when I heard she was planning to get married although the date was yet unknown to us then. Three of the teachers she worked with including me are now living out of the country. She really wanted us to attend her wedding if we could. She even sent us save the date cards in the mail almost a year before her wedding date just because she wanted to give us time to plan a trip back home. I would have loved to attend her wedding but it's just not possible for me to do so. The other 2 teachers who are in Belgium also didn't make it to the wedding but we all sent her our best wishes and a promise that one day we will all see each other again. We just don't know how and when yet. Maybe in her next wedding? Ha!
