In just a few weeks I’ll be in Ontario for my brothers wedding.

It’s not going to be the one we all envisioned originally but it will still be special.

I’m heading to Ontario on August 7th, which is a full week before the wedding.

Originally I was going to spend the first weekend there at a cottage with my brother for his bachelor party but now I’m not sure if that will still be going ahead.

On the following Monday, a large majority of my family will be joining me in Ontario.

We had a full week of activities planned.

We were going to take a trip to Niagara Falls, head to Toronto for the Hockey Hall of Fame and a Blue Jays game and now, it seems like those types of activities will most likely not happen.

I don’t make my way to Ontario very often; in fact this will be just my third time there.

While the main reason for going is my brothers wedding, which I am very excited about, it does hurt a little that those other plans won’t be happening anymore.

My brother has also had to make sacrifices for this wedding to move forward.

Instead of the friends he had invited, it will now be limited to immediate family.

I know this wasn’t the wedding he had planned and hope that the day is still a special one for him and his fiancé.

While there is disappointment at the limitations our visit will have, I need to stop and remind myself that it’s still a major blessing my entire family will all be able to go and be a part of the wedding.

A few weeks ago, it wasn’t even a given that the wedding would go forward.

The fact that I’ll still be able to spend a week together with my family is something I’m very grateful for.

Time together with family is something I’ll always cherish and I’m glad I’ll be able to see my brother get married, even though it means I’ll be the only single person left out of my siblings.
