I'm grateful for my friends. I'm grateful for the opportunities that I have. I'm grateful for my family, even though I rarely see them. And most of all, I'm grateful for my wife.
I've been blessed beyond measure, and when I feel despondent or alone, these people remind me that there's more to life than disappointment.
So thank you everyone who's helped me along over the years. I'm looking forward to a long future of shared burdens, joys, sorrows, and life-changes.
