At a recent get together my friends were challenged to say what they loved most about me. I hated that game. Then I challenged myself to tell everyone what I loved most about them, but I was still flustered from the first game and I couldn't finish and wound up just saying that all of my friends are awesome, the end. So now I want to take a moment to be thankful for each and every one of my friends.
There's my homeowner, who once saved my life and who knows me so well and loves me anyway. Then there's my oldest friend who's been there for me through think and thin. the girl who can be positive and remind me it will all be okay no matter what's happening in either of our lives. The one who challenges me to think about why I believe things and makes me smarter. The friend who listens to my problems, gives advice, and who I trust to never divulge my secrets or judge me. The wonderful lady who reminds me we all have stuff to deal with, we only have to decide how to deal with it. The friend I have little contact with but who always makes me laugh. The new friend who runs with me, and actually runs so that I have to force myself to work harder. The guy who just doesn't care, who I don't have to think around and I can just forget everything and have fun with (even if I usually end up apologizing later). The other friend who saved my life, and saved me from murder charges.
I'm so fortunate to have these wonderful men and women around me. What an effect each of them has had on my life, on the person I am today.
There's nothing interesting here (unless you're busy playing the who's who game about those descriptions, then you might still be interested). There's just me, pondering the most wonderful blessings I've been given.
