Day 9: A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most

I thought this was going to be a tough one because a lot of people in my life have been there for me during varying situation.  But, I thought about it and realized my old roomies, Tracy and Shawn, have been there for me quite a bit.  Not only while we lived together for a tad over two years, but they've continued to be there for me ever since.  They've heard all about my work drama, love life drama, family tragedies/drama/excitement, and just about anything else I feel necessary to either rant about or do a little happy dance for. 
These two are both very kind hearted people and always lend an ear and their words when needed. This coming weekend there is a benefit luau being held for my cousin, Louie, who suffered a severe head trauma and is receiving intensive rehab and therapy.  At the luau, they're having a silent auction; my brother called me up to see if I could make anything "crafty" to put in the auction.  I said, "no, but I have a friend who is crafty."  As soon as I proposed the idea to Tracy about getting together to make a package of handmade greeting cards for the benefit, Tracy was all on board (and really excited too!).  It was a really fun project and I've been excited to do some more "scrappy" stuff soon!

We also used to be a pretty great work out team.  There was a 24-hour Fitness just down the street (that I miss dearly) and we were each others motivation to go at least 3 or 4 times a week.  Shawn was also the chef of our domain and I still call/text him for cooking tips and advise.  I would also have to say my use of punctuation has improved in my writing since Tracy is my designated proof-reader for all important documents.  I've also been trying to use better adjectives when I write too.  Not so much in my blog, but in my school work at least. I suppose I'll have to let Tracy be the judge of whether I've actually improved or not (I better go back and proof-read this!).

All-in-all, Tracy and Shawn were great roommates and continue to be great friends.  I know I can always count on them when I am just dieing to talk to someone about something whether it be good news or bad news; they're always there.
