I just got back to the island from a 3 day weekend, which leads me to 2 things for which I am incredibly grateful:
I got to spend all my time off with Phillip & Roxy and for that I am thankful beyond words. The love of a dog is like no other. In Roxy's eyes, I can do no wrong. I hold the world in my hands. I'm having trouble nailing down just what it is that makes Roxy so amazing because she is just what I need at any given time.
And Phillip. Oh, Phillip. Someone who loves me and puts up with me voluntarily for 7 years deserves a medal! He just gets me. I can be cranky, bratty, and quite irrational to put it lightly but he's there no matter what. I am truly blessed to have found not only love, but a partner and friend for life.
One last thing I'm grateful for that I've been thinking about today: my wonderful parents. One of my greatest life fears is that my parents will never know how much I love them and am appreciative of every thing they do. Any complaint I ever have about them is completely trivial. They are the 2 most selfless people I have ever met. Each day I am grateful that I was born into a loving household and raised to be what I am today.
