So I have done a recap of 2010 and thanked some people but I wanted to do a separate post and thank even more. These thank yous are listed in no particular order except for Vivian.
Vivian – Words can not express how much I love you and what you have done for me. January 1 is our 8 year anniversary and honestly I am more in love with you now than 8 years ago. Yes we have our problems, any marriage does, but we always work through them. Do we work always work through them correctly? No, but we work through them and that is what is important. I still remember our first kiss it was electric and each kiss since then is the same. You found me wounded and you helped me heal. If it wasn’t for you I would not have gone back to school, I would not have reconnected with my family, I would not have friends. Basiclly you made me the man I am today. So if you don’t like who I am blame Viv! Seriously Vivian you made me whole again. You showed me there is love and good in the world. So from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU and I look forward to growing old with you. I LOVE YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART!!!!
Mom, Dad, Lynda and the Jedi – If it wasn’t for you I don’t think I would have made it through those difficult times, Middle School, High School and my first gay relationship. You were always there for me even when I wasn’t for you. I learned from you to stay true to myself, to be strong and to always keep your head up. So for this I say THANK YOU and I LOVE YOU!!!!
Fresh Meat – You are my family. We fight, we disagree, hell there are times where some of us don’t talk. Through it all though I know you have my back and I hope you know I have yours. You guys have made the last year so much fun. You were there for me when my dad passed and you have been there through every step of mine and Vivian’s journey through drag. For all of this I say I love you and THANK YOU!!!
CGMC – You are my other family even though I’m not an official member, you accepted me because of Vivian, so Thank You!!! Everyone of you have been fantastic to both me and Vivian. You are an incredible group of gentlemen and you have really helped Vivian come into her own. So a HUGE THANK YOU!!!!
CLGSA – If it wasn’t for this orginization I would not have found Fresh Meat. So I thank You.
The West Family – Thank you for being who you are and everything you have done for Vivian. The love and support you have given her has been amazing.
Last but not least:
Nina West – If I had to guess you are probably the most thanked person in Columbus Ohio and there is a reason for that. You Miss are an incredible person. You give so much of yourself to the community and orginizations I love, CLGSA and CGMC, so I thank you for that. However what I really want to thank you for is your love and support to Vivian. It means the world to both of us. I am very glad I got to know you in 2010.
If I forgot anyone I apologize and I Thank You.
Here’s to an Incredible 2011.
