I may not have everything I want in life, but I am blessed enough to have wonderful people who love me. For this I am greatful.

Life is kind of like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay all night, some laugh at you, some laugh with you, and some show up really late. But in the end, after the fun, there are a few who stay to help you clean up the mess. And most of the time, they aren't even the ones who made the mess. These people are your true friends in life. They are the only ones who matter.
