5: My life had definitely spiraled way out of control, lost for a sense of direction and not knowing where to go. It wasn’t until I found you that I felt safe and right whether I knew which way is up or down or what was wrong or right. Life’s filled with uncertainty, that’s one thing we know for sure. With all the uncertainty, misguidance, and lack of direction the only thing that makes me feel safe is your love and affection.

39: Believe it or NOT! We are two peas in a pod After going to the Ripley's Aquarium we went to the Ripley's Auditorium and Ripley's Believe it or Not museum. You made silly faces in a two-way mirror because you had no idea it was a two-way... I laughed because I knew that on the other side of the mirror people were watching you and giggling. We spent all day looking at all of the marvels of the museums but after a full day we were pretty tired. You took me to Dick's Last Resort for lunch... little did we know their whole goal is to be mean to you... hence the name!
