Yesterday I had written this really long boring post about friends. It was after I made out all ourChristmas cards and I was feeling all nostalgic. It was crap. It even had a sappy poem in it. Thank goodness I slept on it and erased the whole thing before anyone else had a chance to lay eyes on it. I would've been so embarrassed and all the friends I wrote about would've probably disowned me for being so hokey.
Today everything is much clearer. I know my bottom line moral to the story I wanted to write: Friends are the best, no matter whether they are old, new, constantly around or barely seen. This year, acquaintences became friends and friends became family. New friends became old friends.
My silver turned to gold.
My friends have taken me places I never thought I'd go. They carry me when it gets too hard. They run with me when I'm excited. They help me when I'm confused. They talk with me when I need an ear. They laugh with me when I do something ridiculous.
***OK, this post has been sitting in my archives for over 2 years. TWO YEARS!***
I never hit publish. I don't know why.
But it's funny, because it is still 100% true. The past few years have really taught me a lot about friendships...how they ebb and flow... how they grow when nurtured...how they make me whole...
I love you, my friends. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year.
