Appreciating My Older Brother Daniel Krieglstein

In 2008, Annie and I were one of three engaged couples left, out of 50,000, on the NBC Today Show Race to the Altar with the hopes of winning a million dollar wedding. The day before our final day on the show, I was speaking in Springfield, IL at a school and due to bad weather in the area, all my flight options to NYC got canceled and thus began The Midnight Run of the Krieglstein Brothers.

Because I’ve already told this story on my blog (Part 1 & Part 2), I’ll only use this post to acknowledge the role my brother, Daniel, played in the adventure.

Daniel stopped everything he was doing to support me in getting from IL to NY on time. He not only helped me, but he did so with a positive, and even excited, attitude. He turned, what some might have thought of as a favor to someone else, into an adventure for himself. It doesn’t matter if it’s a midnight drive to NYC or redoing siding on a house, Daniel shows his love through acts of service towards others and does so by making every act of service an adventure for everyone involved.

If there’s one thing you should know about Daniel, in case you never get to meet him, is he’s an extremely giving person of his time and always up for an adventure in the process. He’ll pause everything he’s doing to support you and do so in a way that everyone walks away smiling and laughing.
