    Tonight was beautiful.

    .. I snowed and everyone gathered in the quad and had a snowball fight... I had a fun time... it's a story I can add to my collection of college memories shared with friends.

    I am grateful for my life

    and the people in it. There are so many people who have made a difference in my life, from my mom and dad, to my wife and daughters and my friends and other family. My co-workers- all of whom take their jobs and personal lives very seriously.

    My Circle Has Shrunk Through The Years

    My circle of friends has shrunk through the years, but my family has grown. I love them all, even though many of them don't even talk to each other anymore. I still keep each of them close and don't lose touch with any of them.
