(Tappy Happy)

I am Thankful for:

1. Once having had a man who loved me, He asked me to take his name and share his life.

2. Able to look back at this last horrible year and realize that I have become stronger.

3. My son who without I would be in front of the T.V eating chocolate chip cookies and chips as medication.

4. A family who is scared of the possibility of "IT" happening to them but there for me anyway.

5. Having learned to do things that were Mans Work.

6. Knowing that what I have been through is unique and will make sure that I never take things for granted again.

7. Being able to laugh at myself.

8. Taking the time to notice things that I never did before.

9. Not wasting time taking things so seriously that really make no difference at all anyway.

10. Knowing he is still with me though not in body in spirit, My guardian angel, My Love Forever...

I'm thankful for having such a great father and for the time that I did have with him. It may have -only- been 19 years, but if you really think about it, IT WAS 19 years, almost my whole life.

I'm thankful for having such a great mom, Hope, you are so strong, and sometimes you don't even realize it. You're strength is inspiring. I don't know what I would do without you in my life... I'm truly blessed to have you.

I'm thankful to have good company (my boyfriend's family) on this holiday, and I'm thankful for great food.

I'm thankful for finally having the ability to tell someone about dad... I haven't been able to tell anyone without bursting into tears and worrying that they might leave me or something - a somewhat irrational fear, but I don't feel anyone was GOOD enough to know... If that makes any sense at all...

I'm thankful for good health.
These are just a few things, as I know those are just a few things, I love you so much and miss you. I can't wait to see you, and even though it will be another few months, it'll make coming home all the better. I miss you <3
