Today’s post is a simple one – of gratitude, hope and faith, and evolution.
Friends, be they few or countless, are to cherish and respect. Be it one or many, be grateful for their support, strength, camaraderie . . . their tears, frustration, anger. You know those that are true: they stand beside you through thick and thin. They offer advice [and reprimands] when you’re uncertain, down, or waffling. They cheer you on when you’re not certain you can make the last mile—and they wait at that finish line with a smile and a hug.
Friend: a person we know, like and trust.
Friend: an individual we’re united with in a contest or combat or cause.
Friend: someone who encourages and commiserates.
Friend: somebody who puts up with your tear-crammed calls at any time of the day or night
Friend: a selfless soul who stands by your side (props you up) no matter what
Friend: J-o-a-n-i-e. ♥
Gratitude is something I don’t give enough of, maybe because I’m so absorbed in the 9-to-5 and mom-care—when not writing or editing—that I have no time to think about anything outside the box I’ve become welded in.
We may, time to time, feel lonely, but let’s not forget that we’re not alone.
Today, I say thank you to all my friends and followers—for being there, for being you.
