"Thank you to all the people in the world who are always ten percent kinder than they need to be." -Helen Exley
The other day I was driving in the car, scanning through the radio stations and feeling a little disappointed at all the commercials and dumb songs they were playing. And then, BAM! Hello, Miley Cyrus! Now normally I'd think about groaning, rolling my eyes, and changing the channel asap but because of you, my dearest KK, I listened to the WHOLE DARN SONG. And danced a little. And thought about the time we reinacted hopping off the plane at LAX, just so you could listen to the song a few extra times :)
You're just that great, Kelsey Keizer. I think about you often, especially the fun random times like when Miley Cyrus comes on the radio or when I yell at the tv because this season of the Bachelor was just that awful. I'm really over Jake... but really excited that Ali is the next Bachelorette! When it's on this summer I'll be sure to give you regular updates, in case you don't catch every episode. I bet I can summarize the hour long show into a reasonable paragraph, filling you in on the important stuff and saving you the trouble of wondering :P
But on a more serious note, thank you for being you. For giving your heart, your energy, your smiles and your love to people who need it the most. Thank you for being a shining light in a world of darkness, and thank you for teaching me what it means to love someone so well you'd give up your favorite tv shows and crazy 80s workout tapes (at least temporarily) to show the world what that love is all about. At the end of the day, when you're ready to refill your love-tank, just remember all the hearts on the other side of the ocean who are lifting you up. And if you're in need of a deep breath and a little quiet time, check out the links below (I gave you lots of options - no need to listen to them all at once if you don't want). They're some of my favorite tunes lately - maybe you'll like one or two of them :)
Love you forever and for always. Keep on living and loving the way you do best.
