Dear Awesome People,
I was going to write each of you a note to tell you how great I think you are, but that was going to take a long time. But really, Awesome People, I adore you. I am continually amazed at the things you do for me and for others. You are constantly making my life better and easier. Some of you seem to know when I most need a note, a call, a trip to get some forbidden dark soda, a laugh, a prayer. Some of you write hilarious blogs that make me laugh out loud. Some of you are so nice and so good that you make me want to be better. Some of you have trials and problems that you handle with such grace and good attitudes that it helps me to deal better with my own much easier problems. Some of you have provided me with the best memories that I think about on a daily basis. Some of you are so giving, some so open, and some so smart. Some of you allow me to let down all my barriers and be my real self, and some of you just get me completely.
I am the type of person who is quick to complain, quick to have a bad attitude, and quick to feel sorry for myself. I am often annoyed with other people when they don’t behave exactly the way I want. I often find it difficult to get outside myself to think about how others are feeling/why they might be acting the way they are. But you, Awesome People, you always not only remind me that even really awesome people are human and by extension help me extend a little bit of consideration to less awesomes, but also you remind me that I am so blessed to know you.
So thanks, Awesome People. Thank you for being so awesome. I don’t know what I would do without you.
