Truly great friends come along once in a blue moon and I’m very blessed to have a few in my life. One of my closest friends is Mary who I’ve known since childhood. We share the same artistic flair, family dysfunctions and geeky husbands (you know I love you Steve!). Although we lost touch for a number of years, reconnecting has been one of the best things to happen to me. It’s like time never passed and all we had to do was catch up on a day’s events. I adore her children (and word is they adore me), our husbands get along and we can always pick up where we left off regardless of how much time has passed since we last spoke.
So it was Mary I sought last night while in the middle of a small mid-life crisis. I’ve been feeling a little…weird lately. Guess I just don’t know where things are going with my jewelry and what I’m here to accomplish in this life. Turns out Mary had been feeling the same way too (no surprise there). We talked for a couple of hours, drank a beer and I returned home feeling almost normal. While Steve is my best friend and knows me inside and out, it’s people like Mary who can understand what I’m feeling without being judgmental.
So Hail Mary! Thanks for being my friend and loving me, flaws and all. Take some time out today to call or write your close friend and let them know how much they mean to you.
