Every wedding ceremony I write with my clients speaks of gratitude; how could it not!  Finding your life partner, your Anam Cara, is a search that almost all of us undertake, and when our search is rewarded, we can’t help but feel grateful.  Every day brings to us smaller reasons to be grateful; and many of those opportunities are the result of challenges, of difficulties, of tragedies.

Waves of Gratitude” a company founded by  Cheryl Nordyke and Kim Wierman, is a company that was built on their personal belief that opportunities are born from challenge.   They created an online store to give everyone the opportunity to “wear” powerful symbols of gratitude: jewelry and apparel that is not only beautiful but has meaning.   

What wonderful bridesmaids’ gifts or mothers’ gifts these would make! And a double gift as well.As a wonderful bonus, their company believes in giving back. They donated 10% of their net profits in 2009 to “Susan G. Koman for the Cure”.  They also  participate in numerous charity and fundraising events, and in the future, Waves of Gratitude hopes to  align with more causes, reminding us all that becoming involved with important causes is a wonderful way of expressing our personal gratitude.
