Too much doom and gloom in this here blog. Time for a happy post because I really am happy. I swear!
I have amazing friends.
Like, seriously. I do NOT deserve these awesome people in my life. I am so incredibly grateful for them, now that my family is gone, more than ever.
I love "my boys" and I am thankful for being able to have the priesthood living in the next building. That is the closest it has ever been for me. We have family scripture time and then pwn n00bs faces off (ok THEY do that, I just try to keep up) and that is totally awesome. I love having brothers. I love that they build me up and make me feel good about myself, but somehow make me want to be better at the same time and that I am TOTALLY OK with that.
I love my roomie for putting up with the fact that I can't tell when something is dirty, for letting me (or encouraging me) to feel feelings without making me feel vulnerable, and for our "no judgie roomie time". I love her for being happy even when she is not, and for being so dang beautiful that I am reminded to put on decent clothes and makeup when we go out if I don't want to be confused with a night troll while standing next to her.
I love my best friend because she is everything I am not and reminds me why I really should kinda sorta TRY to be a good person every once in a while. I love her because she knows me well enough that I don't have to explain my weirdness, and because she makes bitchin' cupcakes. I love her because it isn't work to hang out together or to run errands. Also she doesn't destroy us with words when her fiance and I go off the deep end word vomiting at each other.
I love Jordan (duh.) Simply put, because I don't know where I'd be or what I'd be doing without him. Even if the romantic relationship doesn't work out in 2.5 months, I know that he will still always be one of the best friends I've ever had.
There are at least 10 more people I can think of off the top of my head who have seriously saved my sorry butt at one time or another, but I was supposed to go to bed 2 hours ago...
Bottom Line: I am blessed more than I could ever deserve through the love and support of others. There is no other explanation possible to me.
