Last night Brandie and I were sitting on the couch together and at some point between Ava kicks she looked over at me and said, “Greg, we really are blessed.”
I get caught up in things a lot, this last year has been incredibly busy trying to manage work, school, projects like Tweetup, and trying to maintain some sort of home life. I worry about grades, grad projects, grant funding to keep my job and a ton of other things. But I am about done with school and managed decent grades. I have options if I ever lost funding. I have a beautiful daughter growing right now that I am going to absolutely spoil because I can.
I also have wonderful friends around me that over the past year have shared in pain and joy. Life is so much better with you all. Here is certainly an incomplete list of you all that have made my life blessed this past year:
@tsudo @angelmg @kerrijack @harpergrubbs @AdenaJ @kellimarks @bryanjones @diane1230 @Baronsquirrel @cottonr @ang0823 @robbymatthews @varvil @Stacey_Boone @pulrich @AshAhrens @eifortune @kat22stl @marleysmom @mrjawright @creativetype1 @KatieMcManners
I really have been blessed. Sometimes it is important to remember that.
As a side note, when I got in the car this morning one of my favorite Brett Dennen songs poped up on my iPod.
