“The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together.” – Robert C. Dodds
We’re thrilled to introduce Taylor for this week’s Gratitude Story. Taylor reached out to commemorate Shea & Stephen before they tied the knot. There’s nothing we enjoy more than filling the happy couple with the love and support of their community before the big day. Enjoy!
Why did you think it was a good idea for this person to receive a Tribute?
Taylor (Friend): Marriage is a gift. It is so special to always be reminded of the gift, you’ll have for a lifetime, and the best way to do it is making another gift as special for them to remember – to remind both of them that they love each other and are loved by everyone around them!
What is your favorite thing about this person?
Taylor: Shea and Stephen are two amazing, fun-loving and goal-oriented individual and now partners to each other and of course as friends to me. A best friend to me for 15 years, Shea (most of the time) positive, always down to do whatever, incredibly caring personality.
What were the circumstances when they received their Tribute? (ie. Where, When, How?)
Taylor (Friend): This Tribute was one of a kind, not only have they received one of the best things in life, which is marriage. But had received another during their wedding reception on 12/30/2016.
How did this make you personally feel?
Taylor (Friend): I am truly overjoyed by the union, Shea and Stephen have been waiting for. Seeing my best friend Shea got married and knowing that she’s loved by a great man, I am absolutely contented and happy.
Please ask the Tribute recipient how it made him/her feel to receive their Tribute.
Taylor (Friend): Shea and Stephen were beyond grateful, shocked, thrilled and felt very loved and touched by the wonderful words.
Gratitude is the simplest path to a happy life. We’ll be the first to admit that with so much going on each day, it’s so easy to forget. That’s exactly why we created our #GratitudeStories feature. Each week our staff cuts together a one-minute highlight reel from an inspiring Tribute and tells the story behind it. We hope these videos serve as a little reminder to say the nice things in your head and celebrate your friends every single day.
As always, if you know someone special who deserves to be celebrated, we’re here to help you make it happen.
