Lots Of People InfactEveryones' views on life is different. Everyone has something to offer, a different way of thinking! I deeply respect it, I may not agree with their views but I do respect it.
Some people who have made me think about life the most I know I'm going to leave people out: (names are changed, as always) the ones that come to mind off the top of my head are:
Bob - Words alone can't say what you've meant to me. You've inspired me and have challenged me to be a better person. I look up to you.
John - I love his humour, he seems so wise, a man I can talk openly to about anything. A wonderful advise giver. I'd be lost without you I think. I haven't seen you since I left Mankato I need to rectify that soon.
Anthony - You rock! plain and simple. you kind of keep me grounded so to speak.
Arthur - thanks for everything! The chess lessons, the conversation. For being my first old guy friend. I hope I wasn't a nuisance to you. RIP!
Andy - you keep me young at heart, if you ever need any advice (outside of romance) I'm there for you! I admire your sprit, and your great knowlege of cars. I will always think of you as a brother.
Kari - You are pretty cool for a girl too. You have to be one of the most devout Christians I have ever met! :) I feel greatful to have you in my life. I know you wish you could make me a firm believer like you but I'm not sure if that's possible.
David - I don't think you know how much you actually mean to me. I never really let you know. You have kind of a temper but you won't hurt a fly. You're full of hot air and I appreciate and respect open anger a lot more than passive aggression. Thank you for putting up with my mother as long as you did. I thought you were crazy for putting up with her that long. I'm deeply sorry for what my mother did to you.
Stephen (no that isn't his real name so I'll use it here) - yes, we had a falling out a little while back, but hopefully we're good now. I won't talk about it on here.
Kyle - I haven't seen you in ages, I don't know you all that well , but I have seen the good in you on more than one occasion! I was deeply touched by the brief time I knew you. (no, his name isn't changed.. He was the sweetest guy in the world to me and we hardly knew each other. He is the exception, and no I didn't like him like that.) I wish I got to know you.
my siblings/ cousins/ the Shelton kids (they're kind of relatives too) - I look at you getting big and you all make me feel old. :) I actually like it, well for now at least! It's so interesting watching you all come into your own and seeing your personalities develop, it's the coolest thing in the world. to my cousins, enjoy those awkward teenage years, I hated being a teenager.
EP people - I put you all in a group, there are quite a few people on EP who make me think about life.
the people I game(d) with - you guys make things... interesting. :P I miss the weekly gaming sessions.
