my brothers, as much as they can drive me crazy, I wouldn’t be half the person I am today without them.

these guys, (minus the one on the far left, I don’t remember who he is..) I don’t know what I would do without them. they’ve always been there for me, through hard times and easy ones. we’ve got each other’s backs forever, and no amount of miles between us will ever change that. Jolie, I’m thankful for our sistership, I’ve never met a person I get along with more. & Ryan, I trust him over anyone, and I can always count on him to make me laugh.

I’m thankful for the owners of these little toes, for all the smiles they’ve put on my face, all the tears they’ve wiped away, and all the giggles we’ve shared.

the kids I babysit, they are teaching me how to be a mother one day and they don’t even know it.

there’s so many more people I’m thankful for, I’m very blessed by all the loved ones I have in my life. sometimes you don’t realize how much you have until you sit down and really think about it. who are you thankful for?
