Thanksgiving Story

GetAttachment.aspx (31)I had such a wonderful evening!  I was invited to share the story of how Mark and I met during the Thanksgiving church service tonight.  At first, I was so excited.  Then I thought, “How in the world am I going to condense our story to 2 minutes?”  We have so many magical stories from our relationship – practically one for every day we’ve been together.  Fortunately, I had just learned the “That makes it easier” lesson from my guides, so I turned my attitude around to see it as a blessing to only have to figure out 2 minutes of a talk.  So easy, right? About an hour before we left for the church, I called Mark crying.  “I can’t do this!  I won’t be able to get through it without crying the entire time!”  I love Mark so much, and when I feel the gratitude I have for him being in my life, I am instantly brought to tears.  Just before we got up (he would stand with me during the story), I began shaking inside.  I told myself it was not nerves, it was excitement (yea hypnosis training!).  I really was excited.  I prayed that I would be able to communicate my story in a way so that others may be inspired and feel hopeful about love in the world.

During the talk, everyone was laughing and crying with me!  I felt like I was having a great conversation with friends, which I was.  Afterward, so many people came up to me to tell me how much they enjoyed it.  The feedback I received was so loving and wonderful.  People were moved by my story, and that meant the most to me.  I realized how inspiring it can be to share one’s story with others.

I’ve been thinking this week that we have so many amazing stories about our relationship, I could write a book about it. But then I thought, who would read it?  What I realized tonight was that everybody loves a story of love, hope, and gratitude.  So much of what we see on TV and what people choose to believe is not very pretty.  To show a different side of life, to show the beauty of it, is a blessing.

This Thanksgiving, I am so thankful that I have been sharing my authentic self with the world more and more.  I’m doing it through this website, through communications and connections with people I meet, and in my relationship with myself.   I love myself, and I am so thankful to be me.
