Giving Thanks As You Plan Your Wedding

As the Thanksgiving Holiday has quickly passed, I think about all that I am thankful for.  Not just for the food that was placed before me on that special day and having my family home for the Holiday, but for the multitude of blessings that I've received throughout my life.  As you prepare for your upcoming wedding don't forget to give thanks to all those persons that contributed towards making your wedding day one that you will cherish your entire lifetime.  Whether it's your closest friends, family members, vendors, etc., these persons planned their schedule in advance so that they can take part in the celebration of your wedding day. Thank your parents for their existence, because without them, you would not have the life to unite in marriage.  Thank all those persons that have made your life hard, made you struggle, and placed you outside of your comfort zone.  Because of them you've made life-changing accomplishments, overcame your obstacles, and vowed to never give up.  Many times the negative forces in our lives are hidden blessings that are worthy of thanksgiving and praise.  Then finally, give thanks for finding your sole mate and for the wonderful past, present, and future the two of you have spent and will be spending together until death-do you part.

Happy wedding planning!
