I have found myself reflecting on our wedding reception the past few weeks being around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
Every time I go through pictures I cannot help but smile. When I remember walking in and seeing everyone who was there, my heart is happy.
After the first dances I remember walking around visiting with people and thinking, “wow, look at all of these people.” Family, friends and co-workers…everywhere!
The love and support in the room was overwhelming at times. There was family who have known me all my life and are the foundation of who I am. There were friends who have known me for more than half of my life. And then those who I’ve met more recently. I remembering going from table to table feeling blessed to be surrounded by so many amazing people.
Here is what I have learned. I do not know everything. I do not WANT to know everything. I have survived this life because of the people in my life because together, we know a whole lot.
The Thanksgiving holiday this year was a little heavy hearted having lost Kelby’s mom a couple weeks prior. It made this concept of WHO we have not WHAT we have shine with importance. I was reminded in a very real way that who we have in our lives gives us what we have in this life. A happy heart, positive outlook, healthy lifestyle and open mind. That is WHAT I have in my life because of WHO I have in my life, and I am eternally grateful.
