Friends

Today I accessed an application on Facebook (huge shocker) and one of the questions you can ask your friends is if I died today what you would say about me.
So of course I quickly chose it and sent it out. But it leaves me wondering what would I say about certain friends? Well, that led me to coming here and spouting my thoughts, so here goes:
Jess, since the day I met you, you have been an amazing friend. Your wisdom and intelligence keeps me grounded, even though it may not seem that way at times. Your uber intelligence keeps me on my toes intellectually. I appreciate all of the times you have listened to me wax on nonsensically about, well everything. Your ability to placate me without being condescending is much appreciated.
Kat, what can I say about you, well only good things. I admire your strength to pull through difficult situations. Your resilience, your upbeat attitude. I miss our workouts together! We had the best talks. Never forget you totally rock.
Tammi, well, Tammi, my BFF, truly, we have been best friends since we were 13. You are truly my sister. I hate that we live so far apart. I wish you were in Texas with me. We have been through so much together, remember you are stronger than you think you are, you are an amazing woman, a wonderful friend and the best sister a woman could ask for. You will come out of what you are going through stronger, wiser and still beautiful.
Michelle in CA! OMG, girl I am so glad we have become friends. I feel like I have known you forever and we have never met face to face. I love your sense of humor and taste in shoes! You totally make my days at work go by faster. I look forward to the day we meet in person and go shopping!
Mary L! My life is so much richer for having gotten to know you; I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate our friendship. I see you not only as a true friend but a mentor. I am proud to call you friend.
Jan, well you just totally rock. You have stood by me through so much drama. I may have given up on me but you didn’t. You remind me so much of my mother, so calm, wise and an ability to put people at ease. I could never ever have gotten through as much as I did without your friendship.
There are so many more friends, I just don’t know if I have the time or the space to put them all!
For now that is all I have the energy for as my coffee is wearing off. Till next time, and know that even if your name does not appear in my writings today it does not mean you are not in my heart and on my mind. It just means that I am getting carpel tunnel, or however you spell it!
