What matters most …
You know what matters most… well that is different for everyone. Curly said it best when he held up one finger “One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don’t mean shit. And that’s what you have to find out.”
For me, that one thing is friendship. True, honest friendship. Friends that laugh with me, friends that share, friends that support. And vice versa. It can be by phone, email, text, IM, Twitter, or Facebook. I spent this past Saturday afternoon with Laura and her daughters. It was a great day of lunch and shopping. And for once, I didn’t buy a thing (miracle lately for me). Sunday, I went to see Sex and the City II with girlfriends. We laughed and enjoyed. And just the other night, I had dinner with Cathy. During it all, another group of girlfriends and I were emailing back and forth about future, life and whatnot. And last night, a truly wonderful talk with my Dad. This is just an example of the kinds of friendships I have that bring me joy and life in my world. We bring each other up. We love and care for one another. And we are there.
Friendship is a powerful thing.
