Truely blessed.

This one has nothing to do with the Marine Corps :)

As I was sitting here thinking about my life, i've come to realize that I am so truely blessed in life with a great family, loving boyfriend, and a few of the most amazing, true friends that anyone could ever ask for. I just wanted to take the time to write about a few of those people because they truely make my heart smile and they are in my thoughts today.

I've been blessed with a few, true friends in life. To be honest, i'd rather have a few, TRUE friends than a million casual friends. I know they will always be a part of my life and have a little knook and cranny in my heart :)

Brandi- You are truely one of the sweetest, most beautiful, strong, amazing ladies that i've ever
met and i'm so thankful to have you in my life. We can relate so well and it never fails to amaze me how we can just talk, talk, talk, talk about anything and everything. :) You have helped me through so much these past few years and I know I can always come to you and just pour out my heart and soul and you never judge me, you just listen and always have advice when I ask. You have watched me grow up so much these past three years and I've had the pleasure and seeing two of my best friends get married and start a BEAUTIFUL family together. I know it hasn't been easy at times and there will many rough patches to come but I will always, always be here for you and Mia is truely lucky to have such an awesome momma! I know she's going to look up to you :) I honestly can't thank you enough for all you have done and helped me through and all the nice, kind words of encouragement that have pulled me through many tough times. I love you so much!

Laura- I could say so much about this girl. She's my bestfriend and my sister. We have so many amazing times together and are always making new memories. She's truely one of a kind and i'm thankful that she's become such a big part of my life. We have both grown up so much together and we are both very, mature for our age. I think that's part of the reason we get along so well and never fight. She's a great, true friend. <3

Amber- We have grown apart a lot this last year or two but she'll always remain one of my best friends, no matter what. She is truely unique and there is no other like her. We have been friends since the 7th grade and we have grown into beautiful, strong, young ladies together. Of course we had plenty of ups and downs but she's amazing and I always want her to be a part of my life. :)

Cale- My first love, my boyfriend, my heart, my life. I never expected to fall in love so soon or so fast, I thought I had my life figured out and it didn't include any serious relationship until I got a life going for myself. But he came back into my life and swept me off my feet, so to say. He's so different from all the other men i've ever met.. He's self-suffient, disicplined, respectful, strong, kind.. he's a Marine and the love of my life. He shows me so much respect and love and even though it's a hard, long-distance relationship I know he loves me and cares about me, I can hear it in his voice when he calls and see it in his eyes. He supports my decision to go into the military myself and has not once tryed to convince me other wise. He has even said that when his term of service is up he would go into the reserves and follow me around if I go into the AF. I know God has a plan for us, I can feel in my heart. We fit together perfectly. < 3

So these are just a few of the people who have special places in my heart.
