This post was inspired by Jeanettes comments on my “Beauty of Grey” entry! I wrote that feeling very negative. I was down and depressed and generally wallowing in my own self pity – which I HATE by the way.
But Jeanettes comment was a positive one. She saw the change as something positive while I was so deep in self pity I couldn’t actually see the tunnel never mind the light. Her comment made me appreciate the role that she – and my other friends play in my life!
So this entry is a little tribute to my friends! Without them I would be lost.
For listening and not getting bored (or at least hiding it well)
For going to the effort you did in planning my birthday
For not judging me – even though you don’t agree with me
For letting me cry
For helping with my kids without me even asking
For feeding me
For meeting me for lunch/coffee when I have had a bad day
For going with me to Gareth even though you don’t like him
For reading my blog every day and taking the time to comment
For sending me cute voice messages when I just had my heart broken
For having courage under fire and saving me from a night in jail
For being my book club buddies
For driving through to Pretoria for book club
For being honest and not telling me what I want to hear
For getting my son to pose for a family picture
Thank you to all of you for being my soft place to fall! I really appreciate each and every one of you!
