On this eve of Thanksgiving, it is perhaps a good opportunity to let your mate know how thankful you are for him or her.
You were chosen.
Think of that. You were wanted, above anyone else. Not just anyone else your spouse knew at the time, but all of those they had the future opportunity to meet.
It didn't end there. Your husband or wife has chosen to stay. In this age of drive-through divorces (which did exist in Las Vegas), your mate's chosen to stay.
Not because you're a thoroughly lovely person; no one is, all the time.
Not because he or she is 100% madly in love with you. Marriage tends to cure that.
Not because you're rich as Rockefeller and your spouse can't let go of the lifestyle...ever looked at the divorce statistics of rich celebrities and "beautiful people"?
It's because you were chosen, you're loved, and your mate made a promise.
CHOSEN, LOVED, PROMISE...THOSE ARE A GOOD REASON TO BE THANKFUL.
We hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
