Sometimes you have days when all you need is a kind word. A shoulder to lean on. The understanding of close friends. You know the times when you just need to unload your pain and your frustration out on someone who loves you unconditionally and accepts you for who you are? Those times when you just need that special someone to understand?
Today I did just that. I shared with a very good friend all that I had been going through in the past week and a half and opened up my heart to her. I just knew that if anyone would understand, she would. She listened, gave me great advice and reassurance and told me she wanted to think about it more and that she would check in with me tonight.
Which was why when I checked my email just now (certain I would hear encouraging words from her before I went to bed) I ended up simultaneously spewing coffee out of my nose while wetting my pants with laughter. She said exactly what I needed to hear to put everything in perspective for me and get me to see the big picture. I have included in my extended entry the entirety of her email.
Can I just tell you how very much I love my friends. Truly, these are the kind of emails from those I adore that keep me grounded, sane and happy. God how I love my friends! You (yes, you too!) all rock my world!
