I have a post up today at Ten to Twenty. You might have already read it but if you want to relive why I absolutely hate sleepovers, you can click here. It would mean a lot if you came over and commented a little something…you know so that they see that people do read me.
Today’s post here, though is all about the people who keep us sane. Friends.
This is overdue.
To my friends that I am related to, I didn’t pick you but if I could have, I would have. Sharing the same gene pool is a privilege.
To my friend that things got all weird and yucky, I’m sorry and I want to move forward with a new friendship, a new closeness. You are too good of a friend to lose and I can be a big enough person to admit that you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.
To my friends that I used to talk to every day and see all the time, I’m sorry that life is so crazy that we don’t get to do that anymore. I miss you guys.
To my friends that make sure we do talk every day whether it be for a minute or an hour, thank you for making sure I don’t crawl under a rock. Thank you for knowing I am bad at that and picking up the slack.
To my friend that I go too long between calls and seeing each other, being with you reminds me that you are my sanity. Being with you is good for the soul. It feels too good to be with you to go that long. We need to fix that.
To my friend that has known me longer than any of my other friends, being with you is like being with my old self. The self before kids, husbands and the bullshit we deal with on a daily basis. I cherish the time I spend with you.
To my friends that I see once a year. You guys remind me that I am normal even if you tease me about that normal. I love that we are in our 40′s and we can say that we are still friends and when we get together it feels like no time has passed.
To my friends that I met online but in my mind online or IRL, it doesn’t matter. You are friends. True friends that hold me up, build me up and believe in me. You love me for who I am and I’d be lost without you. Each and every one of you has a part in making this dream of being a writer closer and closer each day.
I write this blog like I am talking to a friend so that makes all of you readers out there friends and I thank, thank, thank you for coming here every day (or when I post) and commenting as if we were chatting or taking in my words and letting me know that you felt something while reading them.
