Thank Yous and more thank yous

I was randomly looking at internet stuff last December and saw a video of an interview with John Kralik.  He wrote a little book entitled "365 Thank Yous: The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life".  

Apparently, he had reached a low point in his life, but felt that he still had a lot to be grateful for, and set out to write thank you letters to all kinds of people who had helped him in his life.  This was all chronicled in a book, which turned out to be a best seller.  I didn't actually read the book, but got the point; so in January, I decided to do the same.  My project sort of fizzled in February, but now, after the wonderful weekend of wedding celebration, I'm thinking several 'Thank Yous' are in order!  Letters to several will follow, but for blogging purposes, read on.....

I'm thankful for Charlie Kast who took the time to marry my son and his new wife. (See my previous post here)

I'm thankful for Aleah.

I'm thankful for Ben's new in-laws---Paula and Howie Loyd

I'm thankful for David's family (his parents and sisters' families) who attended the wedding from all over.

I'm thankful for my children---Zach, Vicki, and Andorra who came to the wedding and participated with dignity and love

I'm thankful for my far away family who showed support through kind notes and gifts.

I'm thankful for my co-workers and friends who were my cheerleaders during the pre-wedding planning and shopping stages.

I'm thankful for David.
