36 People I'm most thankful for

As it is thanksgiving I just wanted to reflect on where I am in life right now and take a few minutes to thank all the beautiful people that are surrounding me and that have been influential in my life. I wouldn't be who I am today without all of them and this is just a small thanks. I really tried to include most everyone, sorry this is going to be lengthy. But with 20 years under my belt I'm met a lot of people I'm thankful for who are or at least once were in my life.
