I have always felt very lucky to have wonderful friends in my life. Some of y'all are far. Some of y'all are near. You are all important to me no matter where you are or how long it has been since we last spoke. Without you I would be lonely and sad. No one likes a sad T. She is so depressing. I am lucky enough to see some of you everyday, some I don't get to see near enough, and others I will probably never see again. That doesn't change how I feel about the part you have played in helping me to be a better person and a better friend.
For the ones who are not near but I talk to all the time that listen and understand and are my sounding boards, thankful.
For the ones who are near, who I see all the time, who go with me to the movies, and to girl's nights, and sit on porches and talk, thankful.
For the ones who I don't talk to often, but when I do it is as if nary a minute has passed since we were last together, thankful.
For the ones who have taught me how to be a better mother, eased my mommy guilt, and paved the way before me with passionate children, thankful.
For the ones who I have not seen or talked to in years, but we have wonderful memories that I will always carry with me, thankful.
For the ones who have welcomed me into your lives, your families, and your hearts, thankful.
For the ones who I have never met but support me over the interwebs and are amazing cheerleaders, thankful.
For the ones who are always there when ever we need them to lend a hand or watch Her Highness or help us make a big decision, thankful.
For a few years between getting married and having Lady Baby, I wasn't being an active friend to much of anyone. It was one of the lower times in my life. Looking back on it, I know it was because I lacked something very essential to my very being. Friends. I am thankful for the ones that I found that helped me discover a place to call home and for the ones that helped me through my funk from afar. Thankful, so very very thankful, for you all.
Happy Thanksgiving to all from The Lint Trap. I hope you all have wonderful people and things in your life to be thankful for.
