Thank you to those who love me!

I came across this quote today and thought it would be an appropriate way to kick off one of my favorite seasons/holidays -- fall and Thanksgiving.

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too, can become great.When you are seeking to bring big plans to fruition, it is important with whom you regularly associate. Hang out with friends who are likeminded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly, be that kind of friend for your friends."
Mark Twain

Thank you to all of you who have been that kind of friend. Thank you for loving me despite my many flaws and weaknesses. Thank you for encouraging me. Thank you for lifting me. Thank you for being the type of people that inspire me on a regular basis. I'm truly grateful for all of the really 'great' people in my life who have done and continue to do so much for me, my family, and so many people around us. This quote reminded me of all of the great examples that around me and the type of person I want to be.

Thank you!

Britney, you are so easy to love. I should be thanking you!! I am so happy that you are feeling better, I have missed you on here. I hate it that we live so far away from each other, this makes the distance not seem so far. Love you, Mom
