In Love with the Intangibles.

It's officially the last day of 2008, and I end it on an extremely high note:
I've never been so in love with my life.

My ecstatic state has absolutely nothing to do with financial status (especially considering I have a non-existent one), but rather, it's because of the things that money can't buy--blessings. In my case, 2008's overflowing blessings were people. People, people, people.

I am so blessed to be surrounded by such great people at home, at work--everywhere I go.

My family has grown, and it continues to grow. Although I have always considered myself a family person, this year is different. In fact, each year is different, because each year, I am more and more appreciative of how great this bunch of people are.There are no words to express how proud I am to be part of my family.

Not everyone can say that they are lucky enough to like the people they work with. I, on the other hand, can honestly boast that I love the people that I work with. I have made a LOT of great friends this year, and it's just a bonus that I get to see them each and every day.

There are the friends whom I don't see very often. Factors such as physical distance or work have gotten in the way, and all you can really do to keep in touch is chat or exchange emails and scarce text messages. But in the larger scheme of things, who cares? In the end--friends are friends. What I am most thankful for about all my friends is that no matter how long it's been since we've last seen each other, things will always be exactly the same--perfect. Distance shimistance.

I am also thankful for the countless number of people that I met this year. There are those whom I will probably never run into again, and there are those people whose paths I will definitely cross in 2009. I have learned a lot from practically-complete strangers, and I can only hope and pray that the upcoming year will be full of more much-needed wisdom from anyone who's willing to impart it.

And of course, I am extremely thankful for my Mr. Jose Velez. No one gets me better than JV. Period.

So to You, oh Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent One: Thank you.

Thank you.
