Helping Arrange My Daughter’s Wedding Day

My daughter is getting married in a few months. I am so excited and happy for her. Yesterday we went shopping for the flowers that will grace the church and wedding reception. Her fiancée is overseas right now, so we made the decision to get this done for him. He will have a final yes or no when he gets back, but I believe he will love the choices she made.

When we arrived, the florist Harrogate was ready for our appointment. He explained there were many options to see. We told him about the church and the reception hall. He had been to both places, and he had some really great suggestions. My daughter was having a great time, and I was too. We chose a set of flowers for the altar, and then we chose flowers for the hall. We are both undecided about what flowers my daughter will carry down the aisle, but we can go back and choose those next week.

My Best Gift

I have always known that I couldn’t hear well. I struggle to read lips when people talk to me. I turn the TV and radio way up, so I can hear, but this annoys those around me. However, I have never been in a good place financially that I could actually afford a pair of Stockport hearing aids. I work hard, but there is no money left over at the end of the month. I take care of my kids and worry about myself last. I recently joined a civic organization and have been volunteering regularly to help local veterans in our area.

Imagine my surprise when the president of the civic organization approached me to ask if I would accept a gift from the chapter. I was wary until he told me they would pay for my visit to the doctor and the aids I needed to hear. They helped me because I help them.

A Summer Crisis

The summer of 1997 was not a pleasant time for me. I was a young college student struggling to make it on a diet of soda and ramen noodles. While I had my own apartment, the Manchester air conditioning wasn’t very good to me. It happened to go out during a 100-degree summer day and my landlord wasn’t immediately available on the phone. As the sweat poured and I panicked, only a few hours went by but it seemed like forever.

My landlord finally did call with good news. He had an emergency heat and cooling man who was willing to come out to my apartment and fix the problem right away. And thank God. Now that I have my own home, I know to always have an emergency heating and cooling expert available at all times. There will never be a time when my air conditioner goes out and I don’t have an expert willing to come out right away.

Sarah’s Day

It was just another day for Sarah as she decided to skip school and hang out with her friends. She did not see a reason to go to school because she would have to sign out to go to the doctor for an ear wax removal Manchester which she hated. Sarah hated her ears and she hated anyone even touching them. However, she knew that she could hear much better afterwards. Sarah stayed home and watched TV the entire day that she almost forgot about her appointment. Sarah took a shower and got ready to go to the doctor. She took the subway and made it there in just enough time to be there for her appointment. Sarah couldn’t wait to get home and was ready to leave the doctor’s office even though she just got there.
