My dad who is always my inspiration to try harder and have fun. Dad taught me to work and in the past 10 years he has taught me the importance of enjoying life too not just working yourself to death. I remember talking to him about leaving my job with Modern. He said, "If you enjoy what you do you will never work a day in your life." That is great wisdom dad. I have found in my time working at the student clinic on Saturdays that I love the art of massage. I love to help people and make them feel better. I feel better when I do it and I am so grateful for the quiet advice you give to me. I love you more than I can express in mere words.
I am so grateful for a sister and brother in law with whom I shared an apartment in Salt Lake for 6 months when I moved back to Utah. I thought Tiff had lost her mind when she asked me about living together to save money but I gained so much more than financial benefit from the situation. I got to see them work at their relationship on a daily basis that has helped prepare me for my future. I am so grateful to a wonderful brother in law, Ryan, who is a perfect match for my sister and such a good example. I sure do love you guys and I can't wait to meet that cute little nephew of mine that is scheduled to arrive in May. HOORAY for another nephew and he is going to be a heart breaker!
For my J.D... I don't know how I got so lucky to find such a wonderful man that loves me more than I ever thought possible. I want to be a better person when I am with you and I look forward to many more tomorrows with you. Only 86 days, sweetheart! YIPPEE!! Thank you for being my inspiration to be a better person and encouraging in my dreams... you are the best!
Last night was the farewell to 2008 and while it was a wonderful year for me I know that it was a rough one for many others. I hope and pray that 2009 will be just a wonderful year for everyone.
Until next time...
