So, Claire, Sherrill, Jennifer, and Jazelle? This one is for you, Babes…I love you all and have NO way to repay any of you, except to tell you how very much I love all four of you.
This week has been a bitch. I’m not trying to soften the blow or mince words.
I appreciate my friends more than they will ever know. Life’s too damned short, y’all.
Once again, tonite? I am typing with a heavy heart, but better than last night? There is a little joy in there, too.
As an emotional softie, my girl, Claire Lopez, seems to know who I am underneath it all, and sent me the following link. I watched it at work and cried like a baby the first time. Watched it a second time, and actually felt a little stronger. Came home and watched it a third and fourth time, and think that I might actually get through tomorrow.
Thank you, Claire…You know…just for getting me and shit. I will come to Texas from over here in NC to find you and hug my thanks to you sooner than you think. 🙂
Sherrill, who has loaned me her strength (and, OMG, I hope this works) tells me:
“I will loan you my strength.
”Live out loud,
”Live life by the balls…and give it a SQUEEZE”
