I'm very thankful for the friends that I have.  It seems that for every little broken place in my heart there's a friend that perfectly patches that hole.  There's a friend for each facet of my personality, or for each hobby or activity.  Then there are people that fill empty spaces I never even know existed. There are people I've been missing long before I ever knew them. And then there are the people that weave their way through time and space and return to me over and over again.  

These are the people you trust to carry the burdens that have been weighing you down ("I'm shocked you still go out and smile in that much pain" aahhhh *relief* she gets it...), or to hear out the ridiculous things you think of ("Sneezing while pooping is amazing" "Just rockets it right out."), or to just be there when you need them ("You are not alone.  I am in your corner."), and will back you no matter what you decide to do ("if you are ready to go for it, by all means, I've got your back").   I am not always the easiest person to be friends with.  I ten
d to isolate myself and not make plans.  When I'm in pain, I tend not to reach out; I shut down.  My friends are amazing and awesome people that figured this out long before I ever did, and they've never asked me to be anything but authentically myself.

 I'm a very lucky girl.

  1. If there wasn't an ocean between us, I think we really would be like sisters. It sometimes breaks my heart to read your stories, you know.

    Know what? When the kids are a little older, we might come back to the States, and we'll visit you. Elaborately.
