Today, I want to give a shout-out to all the friends I've made along the way. You know who you are. You've dragged me out for girl time when I was blinded to the fact that I needed it. You've hugged me when I was down, made me laugh when I didn't think I could, called me unspeakable names in public places just to make me smile, and reassured me when I've felt woefully incapable of bearing the cross that has been handed to me.
I am thankful for each and every one of you, all the time. You have no idea how much you all mean to me.
