The Linen Hankie

Posted on

We put so much thought into details.  Finding the ‘something old’ for the wedding has been on our minds for quite some time.  I was hoping to find the linen hankie that was my mother’s that I had tucked into my bridal gown on my wedding day.  But we couldn’t find it, so we fussed, and searched, and tried to come up with other ideas, etc, etc. 

Really, it would have been much simpler to say “On your wedding day, you will have the linen hankie, Courtney”  and just left it at that.

Because, of course, it was in the old silver box.  I had to get something out of the box today, and  to our delight there was the Linen Hankie.  It would have been there, whether we’d spent so much time fussing over it or not. 

This is all about having faith in knowing that what you intend to happen will happen.  And freeing our selves of thoughts that clutter .. such as fussing too much over things that are going to happen exactly as you planned, or perhaps even better, whether you fuss or not. 

Of course, the bonus to the fussiness was discovering I have a great headlamp and a huge attic.  But that’s in a previous post.   

Anything in your life that you’d rather not spend so much energy thinking about?   That’s a question worth thinking about.  (smile)
