hi celtricia

thank u so much for your help!

guess wat? my church printer just sms me to tell me she had just emailed me the format for the church invite cards. I sms-ed back to ask her whether her computer virus is resolved n also told her how I'm losing faith in her etc etc. she assured me tat her computer problem is solved n she will do her utmost best to do my stuff. I asked whtr she's gonna guarantee me her reliability? she simply said to look at wat she has emailed me n to let her know my decision.

I felt very bad abt "hoot"-ing her so hard with my harsh words but I think I haf been very patient with her by waiting so many wks for her to email me smtg so simple. *sigh*


am in a dilemma coz she was intro by the church secretariat in good faith n she's obviously just starting out. I actually liked her when I met her n didn't mind helping her by giving her my biz. but on the other hand, I wonder whether I am slapping myself by putting myself in her hands? wat if she screws things up for me?

if she really pulls her act together, she can actually help me in a lot other stuff such as arranging for my altar boys (she knows the church folks), designing my ring pillow, getting me the unity candle and even tying the gold threads for me on the hotel dinner invitation cards. I was actually quite moved by her keen-ness but I wonder whether I am putting too much faith in her?

think I better go pray to God and ask for guidance.

hey demure...

dun worry too much k?
at least she managed to call n tell u abt the email.. so haf u check ur email to c hwz the wrk done? mayb u can based on d wrk she has done for u to reaffirm urself if u still wan her to continue help u up in preparing ur church deco n planning all.. btw.. r u a catholic by faith? dun tink there's a nid for unity candles.. as i dun haf it for mine n so is my fren's wedding whh is b4 mine..

juz to note dat if u do nt haf anyone to help u to settle n plan ur church stuff.. its best dat u'll b able to find someone to help u.. though church wedding is nt a big affair.. there's still lots of planning to do..

meanwhile.. juz pray n look on the bright side as GOD will b wif u always..

hi celtricia

I'm not a catholic but I haf always believed in God coz I got to know Him when I studied in a mission school for 10 years.


I checked her sample work already. full of spelling mistakes but no matter coz this can easily be resolved.

FH and I thot lighting the unity candle is quite meaningful so we thot of having it. I'm not active in any church and do not have any frens from the church which is why I was so thankful when this printer offered to help me with the church stuff etc. currently I haf settled florist and organist/soloist. I'll need her help for the other stuff for now.

anyway we haf arranged to meet up with her this Sun to thrash things out face-to-face and decide whether we want to take her on. haf asked her to present us her quotations etc.

hey, thanks very much for your reassurance and advice.
