Today is Thanksgiving and I have many things that I am thankful for in my life. But one thing I’m thankful for I cannot say out loud. I’m thankful for you. The fact that you exist. That you did not give up on the world. How beautiful your smile is even if it does not reach your eyes. (When that smile reaches your eyes my heart always skips a beat.) We may have lost contact but I’m thankful you were once part of my life. I’m not even sure how to describe our relationship. But I’m thankful that we had a chance to meet. After I met you I started reflecting about my beliefs, actions, et cetera. I started to slowly change the way I interacted with the world. It did not happen overnight, and I still have a ways to go. I am thankful though that you showed me where I had room to grow. I just wanted to say I love you and am thankful that we had a chance to encounter each other on this earth. No matter where life takes you I want you to remember that there is always someone out there who care for you and that person is me.
