The Love of Friends

Are you hardheaded like me?  I don’t know if anyone is as hardheaded as I am.  Time and time again, I end up learning the same lesson: do not underestimate the love of friends.  It’s not that I actively do that, but I realize that it’s my self-esteem that makes me question it.  I have the best friends in the world.  I don’t care what other people say about theirs being better.  Mine are THE BEST! 

Yesterday, I was having a rough day.  I was feeling particularly sick due to a certain medication and its effects and implications.  After having contacted a few of my friends to explain some things, I felt better.  Having held a secret for a week from everyone, including my Twin, I remembered that I can be really dumb.  There was so much love!  Granted, there was some sorrow because it wasn’t a good secret. 

I got to chat with my Fave and told her.  She is an amazing woman and friend.  I don’t know if you can understand what I mean.  She’s a mother, wife, sister, friend, author, and global phenomenon with an insanely busy life.  Yet she took the time to chat with me.  She is not and does not act “bougie”.  She’s chill and wonderful.  Gah, I love that woman!  I value her friendship immensely.

I also got to chat with another awesome friend and told her.  Her friendship is another one that I value.  Also, there’s a potential to be part of her life in one particular way and I am so excited!  She’s helping me find purpose and another reason to fight.  I have to meet this woman in March in San Francisco!

Then yet another friend is sending me something I have coveted!  I am feeling so much better because of the love they all have given me.  I am surrounded by amazingly wonderful people!  My Heavenly Father blessed me with gifts I don’t deserve, but I will cherish them every single second of my life.

As usual, until later…be safe and be kind to one another.
