Wishing you a holiday
filled with love,
laughter and joy
This was the card that was given to me along with two new pieces of beer brewing equipment (a jet bottle washer, and an immersion wort chiller).
I know I often bitch about certain aspects of my life, and it causes me to not realize many things about other aspects. But I know now that I have some of the best friends anybody could ask for. And I have a quality or two that make me worth knowing, that make me stand out a bit more from others.
So, to everyone who had a hand in this, and even to those who didn't, I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart. And I hope you'll forgive me for not realizing this sooner.
I love you all.
