Friends and Family
Jean: Thankful that she has put up with my whiny, pushy butt since we were in the womb together 🙂 She accepts me for me and only complains about me when I am really a Bitch.
Tara: My constant reminder that I am a good person and a good mother. Thankful for her tell it like it is attitude that reminds me so much of her brother(our Justin). It pisses me off sometimes that she has the ability to make me aware of what is and is not my responsibility 🙂
Anastasia: Who is the light of my life and reminds me that being young can be fun and just as horribly hard as being older. I am thankful for her creativity because it reminds me that sometimes it is okay to make up your own story.
Carrie Anderson: What can I say? She taught me how to enjoy Elvis, tolerate SpongeBob and tell the people who want to judge me to Fuck off. She is a good friend and constantly surprises me with her strength and her sensitive side.
Danielle Wallace: I am thankful to have such a calm and loving influence in my life. She has accepted me since Kindergarten, had my back when bullied at school, and has never failed to make me feel that I am a worthwhile person to know.
Eric Baker: He constantly shows me that crazy can be fun and useful 🙂 He has a perseverance that constantly amazes me. As many times as he has said “I’m just gonna pack it up and say Fuck all of them” he has stuck it out came out a stronger man for it.
Beverly(mom), Cheryl, Terry, and Pam: My teachers and my mothers. They have and continue to show me strength, compassion and understanding. We grow away from parents as we age, we have our own lives to live. Somehow we always know they are behind us ready to catch if we fall.
I am thankful for every friend and family member that I have. Each and everyone of you has shown me a part of myself and added to my life in some way. I would not be the person I am today if it weren’t for knowing you. To all that I have not mentioned THANK YOU! for being you and making my life more interesting, calm, stronger, fun, loving, exciting, and over all so much FULLER! I am truly THANKFUL FOR YOU!
