{Token of Abundance}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
The folkloric "something old, something new" bridal rhyme ends with "...and a sixpence for your shoe."  This was a way of calling forth abundant wishes in the couple's married life ahead. If you can’t find an old sixpence coin to use for your wedding, perhaps you can find a penny minted the year you were born or a shiny new one that promises “a gracious plenty.”

Whether you use an old or new coin as a bridal token for your wedding day, remember that it’s only a token. True abundance is a full heart of that you give away unconditionally. And a full heart is one that stays open...ready to receive the love back a hundred times over!

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from Cornelia
