Before I knew anything about you I had memorized your smile and the perfect, heavenly shade of blue that resides in your eyes. I had memorized the way your dimples formed with every smirk, and the way you got shy when all eyes turned to you.
When you finally looked at me that day, I knew. I knew I could live off that moment for days, weeks, maybe even months. I could replay the way you were standing in the middle of a crowded room and yet my eyes went straight to you. I could reminisce on the way my feet placed me right in front of you without my brain even having a chance to catch up. I could remember the way you reached out and grabbed me right away, telling me you were hoping I would show up that day.
But nothing compared to that first time you touched me. It’s like we were the only two people on earth for that brief moment…Like nothing and no one else mattered on that blistering hot summer day.
Little did I know at the time, you would be the person I could never stand the thought of being away from ever again.
I am thankful for finding this website: http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/30ugyU/:DuZKkWPv:WOH4YnV@/familyonbikes.org/blog/2011/11/50-lessons-i-wish-i-had-learned-earlier/
“I am thankful for how much I miss you, having a job and the fact that that makes me happy in a small sense.”
“I’m actually thankful for how much I miss you right now. It tells me just how much I need you.”
“I am thankful for your sense of humor and amazing boobies”
Today I am thankful for the privilege of celebrating another birthday. I’ve made it this far, and that in and of itself is a grand accomplishment.
“We challenge each other and you make me a better version of me. That’s what I’m thankful for.”
“I am thankful for the unconditional love you have for me”
I am thankful for small glimpses of his smile that I miss so much, and his patience with me.
I realize I haven’t been writing much lately and I think I should start again. I am finding myself in a very dark, low place these days and I cannot figure out why. I keep wracking my brain for an explanation or someone to point a finger at, but I keep coming up empty. Is this my fault? His fault? Your fault? Their fault? I have no idea but I would really like to figure this out, and I feel as though writing may help me bring out what’s hidden in the back of my mind.
So I guess I will still continue with saying what I came here to say: Today I am thankful for me. For being alive, catching brief glimpses of smiles and my friends. But mainly, I am thankful for everything that lays ahead of me.

How could I ever describe our love, when it’s like nothing else in the world
I am thankful for forgiveness and being able to surpass little differences. Also very thankful for the progress we have made.
If you’re with someone that wants it to work as bad as you do, no insecurity will ruin it…Because the days you give up are the days they will try twice as hard for the both of you.
I am thankful for the insane privilege of being able to crush on the same amazing man for a full year.
