Today I am grateful for Grant....again. I would be lying if I told you that he wasn't a HUGE part of my life. Even though he has been gone nearly 16 months and 800 miles away and I only get to email him once an week, letters every other week, talk on the phone at Christmas and Mother's Day, we are still closer than we were when he left. I know that even though he is miles away he still loves me and cares about me. I know that when I have something important to say in his email or letter that he will read it and help me in any way that he can. I love that we can still laugh with one another over email or letters or however. I am so grateful for the amazing influence that he has had on my life and forever will. Because of his example I am a much stronger person spiritually, I am able to laugh at the things that used to make me so mad, and I am able to open up to someone and not keep everything all bottled up. I love this guy more than anything and I cannot wait to see him again!
