The importance of friends

They can lighten unbearable loads. Joy shared is doubled and sorrow shared is halved. Bad days become good ones and good ones only improve.

Last week was a bit rough. I had a really bad day where I felt ill and work just agitated the snot out of me.  And as the week went on it seemed like the news only got worse. My dad’s sister found out that instead of having had Chron’s disease for the last four years she’s had intestinal cancer. It was definitely a week where I realized how much I needed my friends. The love and support of my friends helped with all of it. I felt better even if the situations didn’t improve, my attitude did.

I’ve always known that friends can help with hard times, but, it’s never been more realized in my life than now. I’m constantly amazed by how much just one person can turn the world around. It’s really awesome. I like it.

About texancountess

I find myself in the calming roar of the sea, floating gently on the foam of the breaking waves. Blue. Green. Gray. The colors of the sea mark the boundaries of my soul. The tumbled glass finds its polish under the relentless pounding of the waves upon the shore. Thus am I. Rough transitioning to polish, refinement ever a process, finding my niche in the storms of life.
