Being Among Friends – Wake Up CallBy
There is something said to being among friends! I won’t put any names here, and I know within a few short hours, I’ll be getting a call!
Yesterday, I got a call, one that made me realize what terrific friends are out there to be had, not only in one instance, but in several yesterday. What a wake up call … if we pay attention to the little things.
The beautiful woman, who made us dance!
The kind gentleman who told us even if it was overcast, what a glorious day it was to dance, as he sipped his lemonade!
The old friend who gave us many wise words that have meaning for all. Here is only one line….(When you point a finger at someone, stop….look…. how many fingers are pointing back at you??)
The first text message wishing me a happy birthday from someone whose sense of humor is over the top.. go look at urbandictionary.com, he’s expanded my vocabulary.
The friend that said he left me a voice mail singing me happy birthday, which I never got, and not sure I believe he did, but I could actually use that as a marketing piece.
Lastly, but not least, the friend that called and called me a dumb ass, when HE didn’t know when my birthday was! That friend called to talk about some issue’s that could have turned to larger issue’s, for that I thank him!
This is where friendship becomes a bridge in your life, and you realize there are people out there that are willing to put themselves, their troubles and their joy on the line. Concern over fallout, of issue’s in our lives, of emotions that we may be struggling with, of situations that don’t make us look the best when exposed.
A garbage can is a garbage can, no matter what you choose to use it for, it holds our trash!
Friends don’t see it that way, it’s all of that, the that’s that draws one to a another, the good, the bad, the ugly and of course the joy we feel when we know we are loved, in every way, shape or form.
