This is my life...

Taske a look around you. Feel your surroundings. What do you have around you? Do you have friends? Do you have friends that you trust? Those you know who love you unconditionally? People who know everything about you - the good and the bad - and still stand by you?

My friends have always been the most important people in my life. I've never been especially close with my family, though I know they love and support me. It's the people that I've met along the way who have gotten to know me and have chosen to open up and share that I appreciate the most.

My chosen family is fairly small and quite spread out, but I wouldn't give them up for anything. To all of you who are in that select group, I thank you for being in my life.

I know I don't say it enough to a lot of you, but I love you guys more than I could possibly express.

That is all.
