For Real Christmas List

So, here's my for real Christmas list.  It includes all the things I already have that I am so grateful for:
The best family in the world including:
The Cutest Niece That Ever Lived.
  Nora makes the best handmade birthday cards ever. They are so precious. She loves books, princesses, and pink and purple. She reminds us all of the innocence of childhood, she gives hugs, kisses, and jokes unselfishly. 
The Best Parents.
I can't even tell you all how amazing my parents are. I am 28 years old and have never seen them fight. they are what I hope my marriage is like; devoted, wonderful, giving, and sharing. They gave everything to my brother and me. They gave us the best childhood and after 35 years we can tell they are still just as in love as the day they met. 
My Grandparents
My Grandma Spornitz is 90 years old and still kicking. She and my Grandpa set the bar for the rest of us. My maternal Grandparents were not as fortunate to live such long lives, but they were an inspiration to us, they stayed together through thick and thin, sickness and health, and I was fortunate enough to spend time with Grandma McDole for the last years of her life. My Grandmothers especially were such strong women
They gave us the tools we needed to be the best we can be. I thank the universe for everyday my Grandma Spornitz can still share her wisdom, her generosity, and her compassion. she will always be my inspiration in life.
My cousins.
 How could I be the person I am without them? They inspired me to go to college, be the person I am, I will always be a better person because of my cousins!
My wonderful Fiancee
He always makes me laugh, makes me feel good about myself, encourages me when I feel ready to quit, helps me feel happy when I feel broken, is my partner in crime, and loves me even when I'm being an unequivocal crazy person.  And I know he'll make a great Dad!

Being Back in Kansas City
I've been back for almost 2 years and I'm so glad! (Even though no one here knows how to drive.)
My wonderful friends
some I've known for 25 years, some for 16, some for 10 or less. All the friends I've made, have been loyal and wonderful and amazing and there for me for everything. I wonder how I've deserved so many wonderful friends and I thank the universe for every one of them..
I also Love my cat. Ollie.
He snuggles on my lap on days that I feel people have failed me, he purrs on my lap when I feel like I've had the longest day ever. And he is the sweetest little snuggler  I have in my life. 
Thanks to everyone, all my family and friends who make my life so full. 
I am so grateful for everyone who is generous enough to share their time with me.
I have the best parents
I have the best brother and sister-in-law
I have the best niece
I have the best fiancee
I have the best mother and father -in -law to be
and I have the best cat
and that's all I need to be happy.
so thank you all for sharing your love with me
I am lucky to have such a wonderful group of people (and animals) to enrich my life.
you all keep me going, and I love you.
Merry Christmas!
