the life that I live--its ups and downs and mishaps and spectacles and the small joys and large accomplishments...it's all me. I'm thankful for the experiences that have shaped me into who I am today, the small things that make my life big, and the people who fill the spaces in ways that only they could. My parents, whom I owe everything to--I love them with every particle of my being and would cross worlds for them. I'm thankful for you. My boyfriend, the guy with whom I share my dreams, fears, thoughts, secrets, ideas, and everything in between; the guy that (thinks) he loves me more (but is sadly mistaken...) and always seems to know just the right things to say or do to make my heart sing a joyful tune. I'm thankful for you. The friends who bring out the best in me and the people who inspire and motivate me, whether they realize it or not...I'm thankful for you. I'm thankful for the job that I have that others may not and the will to succeed that drives me everyday. I'm thankful for books and photos and beautiful art. For tea and for fruit. For the leaves in the fall and the stars in the sky. For my ability to learn and my ability to create.
And so, so much more.
