  • Hey, you'll still be here.

    Wherever here is.

    Didn't imagine that did you?

    Didn't imagine much at all.



    You imagined lots.

    It's just that it all seemed so out of reach.

    Now it's not.

    You're going to have a lot to be thankful for.

    Believe me.

    If you can.
