And here is where I try to express all the gratitude I have for the angles (purposefully misspelled as to save 'yalls from death by cheese) in my life!
To the Kitchens,
Especially Jaclyn who I have always admired - ever since YW! Thanks for being my great example; I wouldn't have made it out of my living-out experience alive if I didn't have your steady head. Well, if YOU didn't have your steady head, but I like to think how you would handle things when I'm down. And I have yet to experience a time when David and Austin aren't smiling. Thanks for taking time to visit us (Oh, and especially your Agon)! You guys really save the day!
Who is such an incredible person! Maybe you don't remember, but I had that fondue party that one time, and you said you would come, and you came all the way from American Fork! That was completely life-changing for me, and I rethought my whole life's definition for "commitment," and I'm being totally serious when I say I'm now a better person because of you. I wish all the best for you and Nate; you are easily the classiest couple I know. I'm SO excited to meet Mikathan babies in the future (BAH totally not awkward).
Who ties with Broseph for "most humble person I know." You are headed off to do great things, no matter what they are. Thanks for being a great friend! Keep your chin up, you deserve a lot more credit than you think.
Who will be my buddy to infinity and beyond! Maybe one day I'll learn to work as hard as you. Here's to walking to and from that one corner on Sunday afternoons.
Why is it that there are so many cool things about you, but you never tell anyone?! Thanks for the cookies and for being the most patient person in the entire universe. I'll miss taking you to church and activities with me. Stay cool!
To everyone else who I haven't mentioned,
I've been so blessed with the most amazing friends and acquaintances. In fact, I've only hated 3 people in my life, so odds are, you aren't one of them. JUST kidding. Everyone I have ever met has some extraordinary talent, hobby, or trait, that I've admired. So really, thanks, citizens of the world, for helping me become a better person.
See 'yall in 1.5!
