Today was kind of crappy, so I decided to dust off a post that never made it to press. It reminded me that even on a crappy day, I have so much to be thankful for!
No, not the show...the real thing. I was driving home tonight from an evening of fund-raising and fun when something happened. I just started crying. Not because I'm sad or my life is incomplete, but because...just because.
I suppose some of the tears were for people to whom I wish I could say one more thing - my dad, my first boss, my crazy aunt. But mostly they were tears of joy. Maybe, my heart is so full, something had to give.
I have an amazing, full life. Really, I do. And a huge part of my amazing, full life are my awesome friends. They laugh with me. They cry with me. They pray for me. They even set me straight when I need it. Some share my twisted sense of humor while others don't "get me" but choose to love me anyway. A few friends will even wrap the preachers' houses with me. Some sense when I need a pick-me-up, and others know how to let me down gently. I can't imagine my life without them.
To my friends, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
