Thanks to my "baby daddy" who makes raising our son together (but separately) easy, drama free and not awkward. It's such a relief to not have to deal with that shit. Thanks to said man's parents who have to be honestly the best people I know, who treat me with as much respect and love as when we were together and are the parents I never had. The feeling of a family, with the dinners and celebrations and the caring when I'm sick or sad have been so awesome. I know you don't read The Coast, but I only have so many friends and I had to tell the world how freakin awesome you are.
To my son, you won't read this - a printed version won't even exist when you're old enough I'm sure, but I love you to bits. Everytime you learn something new, or be polite to people you've just met, it makes me so happy that at your age you're such a smart gentleman. The world needs more smiles.
My cat, who even when his dish is empty will wait until I brush my teeth in the morning (because he knows I'm up for the day) to start meowing and make sure I fill it.
I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate the things I DO have, realized it's more than I thought, then felt the need to share. Everyone reading this, take a second - think- and make a list . I bet you'll be surprised. I was in an awful mood and started thinking positive things to cheer me up. It turned out, I have things to be happy about apparently. —Made Me Happy Enough to Put My Chocolate Away
