There are those who come into our lives and they’re only around for a short time. But then there are those fantastic people who come into our lives at some point and they hear our heart song and they see straight into our soul and they take us for every good and bad thing that composes the fibers of our being.
I am constantly reminded how very lucky I am to have so many beautiful and wonderful friends. I LOVE these people so flipping much! I am the richest person in the world when it comes to these friendships. I kid you not.
Oh sure, there have been times when we have not seen eye-to-eye, me and an individual at a given point in time, and maybe we didn’t talk for a few months or a few years. But then something happens where one or the other of us had a slap of reality and we reconciled and we were reminded of why we had been so close to begin with. Then there were others whose friendship had breaks because we moved in different directions before the days of cyber technology. But then the days of technology and social networking came upon us and by one venue or another and one person searching or the other, reconnection was made and my heavens it was beautiful.
My life could never be what it is without these people who share late night phone calls, coffee talks, long aimless drives, darkness whether in silence or in rambly conversation. These are people who know every secret and every joy. Every struggle and every triumph. They have been willing to beat people down (at least in big talk while we spoke in private, hahaha), and have jumped up and down in joy with me. They have shared with me and we have watched each other grow and overcome things.
We’re all getting there! We’re standing steadfast to our evolving dreams. (Little bit of a word play there, but it makes sense in the long run.)
But, point being… I just love these people and I feel so lucky. So stinkin’ lucky.
