A wedding is supposed to be one of the best days of the couple’s life. It is supposed to be the start of a wonderful, life long marriage for the two. However, for one woman, it did not turn out that way.
Michelle Marxen and her fiancé had been planning their wedding for about a year. It was what every girl wants to do and is only a dream until it finally comes true. She planned for it to be what her dreams were. A big, beautiful wedding, complete with the big, beautiful ballroom. This would make any girl feel like a princess. Just as things were getting finalized and almost finished, her fiancé called and told her that he did not want to marry her and did not love her anymore. No one could possibly imagine how that feels unless it was done to them. A lot of people would also be angry in addition to being sad and would seek revenge and/or name calling. Not Michelle, she did something amazing with her money spent on the wedding.
She took that big ballroom and decided to donate it to Creative Care for Reaching Independence, an organization that helps empower people with disabilities. Of course they were shocked just as anyone else would be, but they were also very grateful. They plan to have a Halloween Party for their clients in the ballroom and this could not have been possible without her. Knowing that people can take their bad endings and turn them into great beginnings for someone else is what gives people hope.
