Audra With Some Bad News

Hi, everyone.

Audra here. Those of you who are reading the series know by now that my groom didn't show up for my wedding day. I stood in the back of the church, dressed in my beautiful gown, listening to the string quartet, my friends gathered around me, my family sitting in the church -- all happily ready to share my big day -- and David simply decided I wasn't the one.

What was supposed to be the happiest day of my life turned into my biggest humiliation.

I've been trying to bounce back. And, truthfully, I can put on a pretty good show for my family and my wonderful friends from Wedding Belles, but deep down all those questions linger. Why wasn't I good enough? Could I have done something different? What did I do wrong?

Why am I nearly thirty and alone?

I have to tell you that being left like that...in such a public way...has caused me to doubt everything I believe about myself. I'm not the kind of person who would do something foolish like run away and start a whole new life...but, you know what? Some days I'm tempted.

How does a person bounce back from that kind of rejection?

Audra, your sadness and confusion break my heart. I have a feeling your life's about to take a positive turn and you'll feel much better before you know it.

Thanks, Denise...

It's been a long, difficult couples of months! Hiding it from friends hasn't been easy either.

But work helps. Sometimes I think my real place is more in the business world and maybe I should focus there.

Audra, you're breaking my heart...but I hope you know that we're all here for you. Things are going to turn bright. I just know it.

You do so much for us. Surely there's a man who'll see you for the treasure you are (someone who would punch David in the nose)!
