I won't be sharing all of my thoughts of gratitude, but I will share some of them. Today is my sister Cheri's 18th birthday! Happy Birthday Cheri! Today my thought of gratitude is how grateful I am for her and the friendship that has developed and that we've been able to foster since I've been at home. She has become not just a sister, but a best friend. She puts up with the incessant amount of talking I do when I'm with her, and lets me use her as a model for my personal photography projects. She is mature for her age, is so much fun to be with, and just gets me. Thank you God for the friendship that continues to grow with her. This is her. Is she gorgeous?!
