    Today I'm thankful for my brother Trevor. Hard working, outgoing, funny, and simple are 4 words that describe him perfectly. No matter what he's doing he puts his full effort into whatever it is. If it was a sport he wanted to be better at, he would spend hours working on it in his own time. If it was a project he needed done for school, he would put it before anything else. If it was a few extra hours of studying to get a good grade, he would do it. But most of all, any time anything needs done…

    Running, I was running as fast as I could. I was trying to catch up with father. It was easy, because I was used to running. That was all my father and I ever did. It seemed like every time we finally found I hide out we ran. My father was an outlaw, and I was his child. Everyone was hunting him, because of all the terrible things he did. I didn't know exactly what he did. He would never tell me. Everyone hated him, even my mother. My mother used to call us terrible names. He was a no-good stupid son…

    to make a short speech on my dad, my first thoughts were “NOOOOOOOO I do not want to do this!!!” But after I thought about things to talk about, it actually turned out that I had to choose what not to talk about! I am very lucky and have a dad who has and always will be there for me. He coached my baseball team when no one else could do it, he always has offered to take me to the batting cages and has spent several hours thinking about me and what he could do to make my life better. Something that…

    When I was a little girl my daddy always talked to me as he did when I was a lot older. He would say, “Are you always gonna be daddy's little girl and never grow up and leave daddy.” I would say, “No daddy I would never leave you or mommy.” “Do you promise forever?” I would always say, “Yes daddy never ever will I leave you.” I realize now that I did not know what forever meant. I know now that I truly did not know forever would come. It has came and went and I am still depressed as can…

    Aquinas High School Its august 23, 2002, my husband forgot our anniversary. The whole day, no call or text from him. When he came home that night the way he acted, I knew he forgot. Maybe it slipped his mind? Even though it might have slipped his mind, it still hurts that he forgot. It was disappointing that he wouldn't remember our anniversary. It breaks my heart that he said absolutely nothing about today, maybe he had a long day at work. Maybe we've had so many anniversaries that this one didn't…

    apologize for my behavior and attitude this week. It was very hateful and unwarranted. I have no reason to take out all my anger on you, I think I only do it because I know you won’t yell at me after. Thank you for always being so endearing and affectionate towards me… sometimes I act like I don't enjoy it, but you know I do, baby. I want to tell you that I never want to have just a thing with you, because we are worth so much more than that. I love how close we are with each other, and it warms my heart…

    not make him any less lovable. Working with him has made me realize to never judge a book by a cover. Alex has taught me that everyone is special in their own way and I am so grateful for his family allowing me to be a part of his life, it is one of my proudest accomplishments to say that I have influenced him in even the slightest. Working with him made me more of an adult because when I’m with him I’m the one who has to protect him. I always thought that I had a rough time in life but Alex has trouble…
