I was just sitting here thinking of all the blessings in my life and YOU came to mind.
YOU are the person who supports my vision and encourages me to grow and become somebody in my life. YOU are the person who believes in what I do enough to send new friends to me. YOU are the person who smiles back at me when we have conversation. YOU are my friends.
In this life we have ups and downs. I have mostly “ups”. Downs are for those who don’t believe in anything. My windows are always open. Shut windows never receive fresh air. An open heart also receive fresh revelation about the people I meet. And that would be YOU.
I am also thankful for so many that I cannot begin to express it. MY wife, Onda, of 40 years has so many differences from mine that it causes me to stop and think … just a bit differently about things. Your character and integrity is without question. I can count on you to love our sons, daughters-in-laws, and grandsons. Yes, YOU are instrumental in my life.
My wonderful new associate, Emily, brings a fresh young outlook into my life that breathes new life into our photography world. Yes, YOU bring new perspectives that bring value to our relationship.
My marketing guru, Tony of Be Branded, has the keenest insights into marketing business. I trust his viewpoints of the “big picture”. Yes, YOU bring giant thoughts into my mind to help me expand as an entrepreneur.
Others in business, like Kathy of BuzzJoy, have been great supporters of what we are doing.
My pastor, Larry of Evangel Christian Church, has been a spiritual giant in my last 27 years or so, which has caused me to balance all the things in my life. Yes, YOU bring insights that help keep me balanced in all walks.
To the rest of my professional friends and the associations (Indianapolis Perfect Wedding Guide, Indianapolis Wedding Professionals Network, Indy Wedding Ideas, etc), YOU have been a constant source of encouragement
Yes, YOU people are so recognizable to me, in that you have been brought close to my heart. Do YOU recognize yourselves in this story?
YOU are also my brides. Because of you I have had the greatest opportunity in the world. The ability to capture beauty in motion on a special day in your lives. I have seen the storylines of fairytale, elegance, fun, classy, stylish and so many themes over the last 30+ years.
Thank YOU for being there for me. Without YOU, there would be no ME.
I just had to say thanks.
