Still, he invited me. I'm the girl who is humbled and grateful to receive a wedding announcement from someone. I am not often invited to sealings since families are large and should be accommodated. I'm not usually the close kind of friend that one thinks of to invite. That is perfectly fine. Indeed, I do not ever expect to be invited to sealings. I understand that it is a small group that can be invited and I don't feel I have much of a "right" to be invited--unless it's my own siblings!!
Outside of my own family, I have been invited to 7 temple sealings. Five I was able to go to--three of them involving me flying on a plane in order to attend. One I was out of town for (though I was the brides temple escort the previous week), and the other I found out the night before and couldn't fit it into my plans. I was honored by each one. But especially by this 8th one.
Today's Something New: Winnie the Pooh is considered to have 2 birthdays. In June, when the toy bear was released for sale. And August 21, when Christopher Robin received his bear on his 1st birthday. Either way. it's 90 years this year.
