i've been thinking about friendship quite a bit lately.
the older i get - the less friends i seem to have.
or i guess i should say - i have fewer REAL friends.
the kind that always love you.
no matter what.
the kind of friends that walk through the valleys
& ride life's roller coaster with you...
in my opinion - unconditional love is the greatest gift
we can receive in this life.
to be seen and known by others -
and to receive love anyway...that's what life is about.
it's what pushes us, carries us, encourages us -
and it's what brings the purest type of joy.
i am beyond thankful that i have old & new friends to walk through life with.
having those people - that you can laugh your ass off
with one minute & fall into their arms bawling your eyes out
the next - to me - is such a simple thing that i often look over and forget to truly appreciate.
i guess this is my little speech to announce my gratitude.
words can never express love accurately -
but i love you - my friends.
and i am thankful that you love me.
thank you for allowing me to not be perfect.
thank you for making fun of me & keeping me humble.
thank you for challenging me to be a better version of myself.
i'll quit now.
i get on my sappy train & can't really control it.
i love the people i've been blessed to call friends.
