This weekend, Kayla stayed at my house because her parents were out of town. On Friday, we made a trip to walmart and as we walked in, we saw a bunch of Betta fish. We both looked at each other knowing we were thinking the same thing... "Let's get a fishy!!" We thought it was a brilliant idea. We then decided that we didn't want a Walmart fish so we made a trip to Petsmart. When we got there, we couldn't find that PERFECT fish, so we went to Petco. Right when we walked in, we found the it! We had already decided on the name Sparkles due to the fact that we got ourselves in a mess glittering my sister's mirror (that I previously wrote about) and it was a funny memory that will last forever. When we came across the fish at Petco, we knew that it fit with the name Sparkles. While we were looking at her, one of the employees came up to us and asked "Are you 18?" "Umm I will be in a month, does that count?" I responded. "Nope! You have to be 18 to buy livestock." Kayla and I were so upset. We then started to think of all of our friends who were 18 and would be willing to help us. Finally, we got a friend to drive all the way to Petco just so we could get a fish! We were so excited! We then went back to Walmart (we go there about 3 times everyday) and got a fish bowl and some rocks. We got home and set up the fish tank for Sparkles. It's a happy little fishy now :)

This morning, I can't help but think over and over again, "I am so blessed." I am blessed with great friends, a great family, and much more. Just recently, my friend, Kayla, got a job at the country club with me. Thursday was her first day and we were able to work together Thursday and Friday. I have such a blast working with her. Not only is she a good work buddy, she's a great friend. There's not a moment that we don't have fun together. God has also blessed me with a wonderful boyfriend! He's there for me when I need anything, he reminds me every day that I'm beautiful, he's sweet, he's loving, and he's kind! He always makes me happy whenever I'm down. He's my best friend and I couldn't imagine not having him in my life. Another HUGE blessing in my life is my family. I have a wonderful mother that is there for me no matter what, even when I make mistakes. My dad is pretty amazing! This morning, he hung shelves in my room for me and then we spent some time playing chess together. He sets a great example for the whole family. My brother, who is now in college, is the greatest big brother I could ever ask for. Although we don't talk all the time and I don't get to see him much since he's in Austin, I know that if I ever needed anything, he would drop everything. He has always had my back. And then there's my sister. From the day she was born, we've been best friends. Of course, we aren't perfect and we have our days, but even spending just one day away from her is hard for me. I don't know how I got such an awesome family and friends, but I thank God for them everyday. On top of the great people that God has placed in my life, God always provides me with all my needs, every day of the week. I definitely don't deserve everything I have, but I am so grateful for the things God has blessed me with.
