I am thankful for the most amazeballs family ever. I thankful they are supportive of me no matter what. I'm thankful that my divorced parents get along and I'm thankful that I'm reminded of this regularly. Their friendliness post-divorce has made my life so much easier. I'm thankful for my amazing step-family (or bonus family as my Dad likes to say), including my step-mom, step-seesters, and step-grandmother. I'm thankful for the ten years I got to spend with my step-grandfather. I'm thankful for family here and gone.

I'm thankful for my friends, old and new. Friends like Jessica who(m?) I've known since we were in first grade (although we weren't friends until fifth grade). Friends I met later in school like Kendall and Muck. Friends I met at TCU. Friends I met after graduating. Friends I met after I moved home. Friends from camp. Friends I've made at work. All of my friends are the best and I love them all.

I'm thankful for the opportunity to go back to school and further pursue my passion.
I'm thankful for my sweet Nappy boy even when he gets bitey and tries to gnaw my arm off.
