Tomorrow is thanksgiving, and boy do I have a lot to be thankful for this year. Besides having a roof over my head and food on the table (or the bar since we haven't gotten a dining room table yet), I have a lot of amazing people in my life.
To my Mom, thank you for supporting me. Even though you felt like you were losing your little girl, you still knew that trying to stop me would only push me away. You even told me not to listen to anyone else, that I "had to learn things on my own," and that you were on my side even when no else was. It makes me so happy to know that you have accepted Chris into our family with open arms.
To Katey, thank you proving to me that friends do not always come and go. I know that your one of a kind, that our hugee differences force each other to look out from a different window, and that our LTF (long term friendship) will always be there.
To the Navy, thank you for turning my love from a boy into a man. Without you, we would have had to wait much longer to get married, and we wouldn't be where we are today. There are times when I despise you, but then I remember to count my blessings.
To my grandpa, thank you for being the strong fatherly figure in my life and for holding on until you could pass my hand to the other man in my life. I know you won't physically be able to walk me down the aisle, but you will be there in spirit. I will always be your little flower.
To my husband, thank you for the love that you show me. I am reminded everyday about why I fell in love with you and why I will always love you. You support me, listen to me, encourage me to come to you with my problems, make me laugh, make me feel loved. You are everything that I need.
To God, thank you for the life you have given me. I never expected to be where I am today, but you had your path set for me, and now I can see how perfect it is.
