To each his own. To me my own.

Will and Kate

Amidst the daily life struggles, including controversy, drama and in-general mean and miserable people – there is a bright spot I have looked forward to for some time now. An event in which I’ve taken the entire day off from work to enjoy watching.

The Royal Wedding.

I’ve always enjoyed reading other people’s comments when it comes to a subject of interest. Over the past few days, a good many comments astound me. The British Monarchy’s facebook page created an event for the Royal Wedding. How about such negative comments on that as “I’ll bet 79% couldn’t give a toss about the wedding” or “So sick of hearing about this, move on to something else already.”

Seriously? You’re sick of hearing about it but you’re going to take initiative to write about how sick of it you are? That takes precious time, my friend! Newsflash – you liked the British Monarchy’s facebook page to begin with… what do you expect to read about?? The news channels are the absolute worst. Every time something is posted about the Royal Wedding, negative comments come flooding in. Have the majority of these les miserables really become so curmudgeoned to the daily routine of life that they are unable to appreciate a good love story anymore?

Maybe it’s just me, but that’s how I see it – and such is life. As for me, this old romantic shall remain upbeat and continue to appreciate a monumentally happy event. After all, who couldn’t use a little happiness?

  1. Some people look for platforms from which they may spew negativity. I’m not sure what the motivation is, but I suspect it’s not nice. Many more people will enjoy the wedding of Will and Kate than those that spread their personal gloom about it. Blessings to you, Bonnie…

      This is true, Carol Ann. I needed that reminder. Blessings to you, my dear friend.

  2. I’m an Iowa girl born and raised into an Iowan woman. Have been for 48 years now. Never even been to England. I have people poo-pooing me for getting up to start watching the coverage at 3 am. (I’ve even got hot, cinnamon rolls and hazelnut coffee planned for this event. Woo-hoo!) I posted about how excited I am about this wedding. Why? It’s a fairytale! What girl hasn’t dreamed of being loved by a Prince, having a fairytale wedding, and becoming a princess? It’s magical!
    My husband said, “Uh, we’re not from England. Why do you care?”
    I told him, “Because a good love story is international, that’s why!”

      You and I sound alot alike, indeed. I took the day off specifically for the wedding (that hazelnut coffee and cinnamon rolls sounds delectable!) and plan on taking full advantage of the festivities from start to finish. You summed it up exactly – it’s about love, which I place very high value on in life. It’s nice to see love whether it’s for yourself or for another, and they’re such a beautiful couple. I loved Diana so much, and Prince William seems so much like her with his kind nature. I love your response to your husband! I’ll definitely have to remember that… 🙂
