BC: The End | "The sunrise is Gods greeting - the sunset, his signature."
FC: I Don't Care
1: My family and I have been through a lot in the last few years, but it has only made us closer. They have made me who I am and I wouldn't trade them for anything. I am so blessed that God let me be apart of this family.
2: I was born in Jacksonville, Florida to Tommy and Theressa Fitzpatrick on May 19, 1994. I was saved at the age of six, but I didn't really start giving my life over to Him until my freshmen year of high school. I still have my struggles but God gets me through it. He has blessed me with the greatest family and friends, and I thank Him everyday for them. I pray that I get to see them all again in heaven one day.
4: "There's no other love like the love for a brother. There's no other love like the love from a brother."
6: "A mother is the truest friend you could ever have. Her love is selfless."
7: My mom is my best friend. I feel like I can go to her for anything. Of course she still has to be my parent and punish me for something that I did wrong, but I understand that, and eventually we will get past that and it will go back to normal. I pray that one day I am like her when I grow up. She has come so far, with her going back to school, and being the spiritual influence that I need. She puts others needs before her own in almost everything that she does, and that's what makes her a great mother.
9: "Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad." | My dad has done so much for me and my family. He has worked so hard to get us to the place where we are today. We didn't have much growing up, but we never needed for anything. I hope that one day I have the same work ethic that he has. He's not a very touchy, emotional person, but I know that he loves me very much, and I love him.
11: "Having a place to go is Home... Having someone to love is Family... Having both is a Blessing." | "You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them."
12: Christina Chanelle Hadden has been my best friend for about three years now. We have definitely been through our ups and downs, but I would not trade them for anything. Our view points differ sometimes, but we manage to look past them. A few of the traits I look for in a friend, that Christina has, is someone who can make me laugh, and is a good listener. As much as I have been there for her, she has been there for me just as much.
13: "Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow." | "Friendship is like a Christmas tree, decorated with warm memories and shared joys. You're the slightly cracked ornament that always make me smile."
14: Christine McLendon has been my best friend for five years. There is without a doubt, no one else like her. She accepts me for who I am, even though she knows how crazy I can get sometimes. We've had so many memories and so many laughs. We've had our disagreements, but she's still my best friend. And I pray that it stays that way even after high school.
15: "A million memories... A thousand secrets... A hundred inside jokes... One reason... Best friends."
16: Reagan Alyse Goldfarb has been my best friend for four years and counting. I love this girl to pieces. We've had problems in the past, but we are both working on the things in our lives that are not glorifying God. I look up to Reagan and her spiritual walk. She makes me want to have a stronger relationship with the One that matters the most. She is honest and loyal and I would do anything for her.
17: "Some people walk into our lives, leave footprints in our hearts, and we are never the same again."
18: Mine and Kortneys' friendship started over basketball season; and somewhere along the way we became best friends. Even though we don't look alike, I think we are long lost sisters. She is just like the twin I had secretly always wanted. We always seem to be thinking the same thing, doing the same thing, we react to circumstances the same way, and even our families are similar. We have so much in common its almost creepy. We haven't been best friends for a long time, but there are just those friends that you know will stick around for awhile, and she's one of them. I can tell her almost anything without feeling like she is going to judge me, and thats one of many things that makes her a great friend.
20: I remember when I met Natalie Collins for the first time. Our brothers were stepping on ant piles and we sat on the curb while our moms were talking, I was two and she was five; we have been best friends since that day. My mom is her second mom and her brother is like my second brother; our families are very close. I don't even like to call Natalie my friend sometimes, because she is much more than that; she is my sister. I thank God that He has put her into my life. I am so blessed to have a great friend and influence in my life. We are there for each other no matter what; whether its as simple as being bored, or needing someone to vent all of their stress on. She is the kind of friend, that you know without a doubt, will always be in your life. I don't know what God has in store for my life, but I pray His plan includes her in most of it. | "We've shared so much laughter... So many tears... We have a special bond, that grows stronger through the years... We're not sisters by birth, but we knew from the start... Something put us together, to be sisters at heart." | "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." -John 15:13
22: All things grow better with love. | "A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be."
