Mom is first on the list here, as well she should be. My mother is one of those mothers that you learn to share with your friends because she's just so damn cool everyone wants her as their mother. :) We've seen each other through some rough times and I would never ever trade her for anyone. Its a lucky son that can call their mother both a mentor and a friend.
Of course, Dad is next. :) Its been a long journey getting to know my father. When I was little I knew very little about him as he worked nights and I barely ever saw him. As I grew, there was a distance between us that at times seemed almost unpenetrable. But I found that Dad was growing and changing too and fortunately we grew closer together and now he and I are extremely close and I'm so glad I've had the chance to really learn who my father is and call him Dad and also a friend. We have more in common then I ever knew! He's in California now and I dearly miss him.
Next up! My brother Chris who is prolly pissed right now because he's realizing that I stole the family pictures off of his website! Hehe! *phew* We've been through some times huh, bro? Chris and I rarely ever got along when we were younger as is somewhat common for brothers. But we are much closer now and we have a mutual respect for each other. I don't think you'll ever realize how much I admire you and how proud I am of you man.
And last, but not least of my family by any stretch of the imagination is my youngest brother, Matt. Heh, Matt is definately unique. :) Matt is always putting on a show in some form or fashion, so its difficult to really get to know him, but I think I've got a good grasp to some extent. One thing no one would ever debate though, is the man is cool. :) He has incredible potential since it seems like he can accomplish just about anything he sets his mind to. If he wants it, he can get it. Absolutely amazing. There is a real soft side to Matt that not many people see and I feel priviledged to be one of the ones who has. You've got a good heart dude, don't ever let that change. And by the way, I'm damn proud of you too. :)
Okay, we're done with the family, now onto the friends! And who better to start it off then my best friend, Neale? Geez, I mean, I've known Neale since 7th grade! I think one of the things I like most about Neale is how incredibly different he is from me and yet still, how we are so much alike. :) There are days when he frustrates me to the point that I think I'm going to explode and then there are days when I thank God that He put him here in my life to be there for me. Neale and I create a great balance between each other. And I could never want for a better, more caring and wonderful friend. I LOVE YOU MAN!! (insert male posturing here) :).
This picture brings back so many wonderful memories. The people you see here made my high school years so much richer and more wonderful then I could have believed possible. You have no idea the amount of love I have for this picture and the people shown in it. Okay, from left to right: Joey, Laura, Wendy, Kristen, Becky, and kneeling is Lisa. Damn, is it any wonder I've got that stupid grin plastered on my face?? :)
