Everywhere I look there is com kind of year in review or best of 2013 something or other and I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting this past week.
I am thankful for graduating high school and moving to Grand Valley. I love all the new people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and making friends. You guys made my year more unique and uplifting than anything I could have done on my own.
I am thankful for all the ties with my “old” friends that have just gotten stronger with time and a “little” space. Every moment I spend with you is dearly special to me and I wouldn’t trade them for anything. Know that I am here for you anytime, and anyplace, I may be.
I am so happy to get to know my extended family more, and being able to see cousins for the first time in over 10 years. You guys are awesome, and I’m so happy we are family. And even though I am only a short car ride away, moving away has made my bond with my immediate family that much more special and memorable each time I come home or have the blessing of talking with them on the phone.
After all the disappointment, tears, and anxiety of this year, through all the trials, changes, (and the drawing of a new life plan), there have been some amazing memories made. I count the beautiful days far above the dreary ones; more beautiful is my day made by the people that surround me. I LOVE each and every one of you. Thank you for making 2013 my favorite year yet. I’m sure there will be some fantastic things to come in the future. God Bless. – Sarah
