An Important Year to Give Thanks

Each year on Thanksgiving, we gather around the table, eating the best comfort food until our pants are bursting open.  Many of us reflect on what we are most thankful for.  In a year when I have written more thank you notes than I can count, I know I have a lot to be thankful for.

This has been one of the most important years of my life.  As I worked to plan a wedding and prepare to make this major transition in my life, I found that I needed the support of my friends and family more than ever.  I’ve always tried to do things on my own, sort out my issues on my own, and only when it got too tough did I ever break down and call out for help.  This year there were many five alarm fires called in, many people called on to save me from doom.  When I was at my worst, my most stressed out, when I was questioning everything I knew, when I was struggling to come to terms with the major decision I was making, I called out for help.  I called out for my best friend and my close friends to get me back on track, to validate my feelings and decisions, to keep me from losing sight of the end goal.

When I think of the support I received from my family and friends, I am blown away with the turnout.  Friends coming near and far to support me, family supporting all the decisions I made without too much pressure.  The camaraderie amongst my fellow brides and our common struggles.  All the people who showed me that they really cared.  At the end of the day, no thank you card is enough to explain how thankful I am to have such amazing people in my life.  I will always think of my wedding as a time when my true friends stood up to support me.

My wedding was not merely a celebration of marriage.  My wedding was a celebration of a life filled with people who care.  I am incredibly blessed to have so many amazing people in my life.  Thank you all for the incredible support you’ve given me this year, and all my life.  I will continue to pay it forward.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
