There is something about the connection, laughter, and love shared with other people that cannot be replaced with anything else. Last night my boyfriend and I had the opportunity to go to the wedding reception of his long time friend. The bride was positively gorgeous and radiant with love. The groom was absolutely bursting with joy. Often I say how grateful I am for friends that are like family and family that are friends. Last night was a great example as everyone laughed and played games. I believe joy begins within yourself. No one can "make" you happy if you can't find the love and joy within yourself. But last night was a great reminder for me that while we create our own joy it is multiplied when we share it with the ones we love. I'm so grateful to share that special moment with friends. I'm so grateful for the beauty of everything last night. I'm grateful for the laughter we all shared. I'm grateful for the games we played and all the people willing to be silly. I'm grateful for the photo booth and all the creativity people found in taking pictures for the guestbook. I'm grateful for the union of two beautiful people and for the love they share. I'm grateful to know that I do not need a caught bouquet to believe I will one day be married. And I'm grateful for the man that shows me love each day and accepts my love in return. I'm grateful for all the joy we share with each other and the strength of our friendship within our relationship. I'm grateful to have more social plans with great friends today. I'm grateful for this abundance of amazing people in my life. What joy do you find within your friendships? How do you share your gratitude with these people for the connection you share? May today be blessed with laughter and may your joy burst out to be shared with those you love. Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
