Life is rough isn’t it? Some days I am filled to the brim with joy and with one quick glace around the room I can see the beauty in my life and appreciate the many blessings that God has given me. But other days, oh man, those other days are something else. Nothing I cook tastes right. Nothing I put on fits properly. Everyone I talk to is an idiot. I’m all alone in this big dumb world and nobody loves me. Gee wiz…those days are the worst! But it always seems that no matter how miserable and nasty I am, there’s one person who has absolutely no problem telling me that I’m acting like a child and to get the frik outta my funk cause its annoying. For 16 years she has been saying that crap to me and every time, she is right.
I recently had a chat with my bestie and was humbled by the reminder that God gives us an intimate group of close friends and family to reassure us that we are not alone. That no matter how bad our situation seems or how hopeless we feel, they get it. Those friends hear our words and feel the depth of our pain . It doesn’t matter how many years have passed or the number of stupid fights we’ve gotten into, they always love us through it.
I have many days when I feel like the saddest little girl in the world. Moments when all I want to do is stomp my feet and scream at the top of my lungs because “no one understands me!”. But some people do….she does…..and it is the greatest gift I could ever ask for.
