    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.

    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.

    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.
