Thankfulness Mondays – An Early Search, and Find

Week 49 (of  52) joining with Bernadette of Haddon Musings and other bloggers, posting each week of something in our lives to be thankful for, whether small or large;  hoping while doing so it will offset some negative areas and perhaps encourage some others along the way.

Today I’m thankful for something frivolous. While in a shopping mall this week not really intending to look for it, I decided to go into a couple of stores that were there, because the malls around where we live, don’t have these particular stores.

It’s not that I needed to get it yet, as I don’t until October, but just thought I’d have a little look. So the first store that I went into, that I thought  would have a good selection of gowns, in fact had very little choice. Of course when you’re being very specific I wasn’t sure about finding the ‘one’ I was looking for.

Lo and behold, the second shop I went into, had many to choose from, and there on the rack I found exactly the right one; at least in my mind. It was the exact colour, length and had a little bolero top to cover the shoulders and upper arms. If you know about women over 70, you might understand why I would want a little bolero or little jacket.

The dress is for our first grandson, in fact the first grandchild to be married, in October. Now you know why I really didn’t need to really be looking yet. I so look forward to him and his beautiful fiancée, being married and starting their life as husband and wife. I pray for them, that they will accept the best and the worst… and that they do love and cherish each other as they go through their life together.

Anyway, I am excited that I found my dress, and so look forward to their coming marriage.

The pictures I’m putting up were actually from the store’s online website, ( as I had to put mine in for alterations. I’m only 5 feet tall and clothes I buy are always too long). I have to say the pictures don’t  do the dress justice. It is, in actuality a shimmering grey, with sequins.

 Of course, I don’t have a figure like the model does, but I am so happy and thankful to have found it, and on sale!

  1. Oh you were so smart to start shopping early. It’s so hard and unusual to find the perfect dress for such a special occasion. But you did it! And it’s great. I also need to hide my arms and I’ve found that the “cold shoulder” blouses are perfect. They are cool enough for summer but hide that horrible crinkly spot on my upper arms. I hope the never go out of style! Anyway, I’m happy you found that perfect dress, Diane!

    • Thanks Linda… I was so surprised and hoped it was a good choice. When I saw the little top, I was so pleased… As well as being older… I’ve also lost some weight so am very conscious of that problem area.. Diane

  2. A big day ahead Diane, Weddings are always a special time in our lives including those in our families and yes Commitment is very important in Marriage, Storms come and go, we need to be faithful and support each other regardless of what life brings, Marriage needs two working to make it successful or it won’t be.

    I’m sure the dress will look nice on you Diane because you chose it and you seem to do like I do when buying clothes, carefully and making sure it fits and suites you, mostly I mix and match my clothes but sometimes I buy a Special outfit depending on the occasion.

    Blessings – Anne.
