Friends Are the Family You Choose

Yes, it’s been a week plus one day.

I’m slack.

I will absolutely admit that. I’m behind on my blogging. I’m behind on my blog reading…My favorite bloggers are leaving me way behind and I have much to catch up on.

I have had some things going on in my personal life that, again, I’m not ready to share with the free world.

That said, I have to send a shout out to friends.

I have the craziest, most eclectic group of them. (UPDATED: These are not in any order, so I plead the fifth in that regard…I can’t actually choose a favorite, anymore than I can pick a favorite child…I love you equally and wholeheartedly…) I have an author/Voodoo Mambo friend, another author who supports me in my offline issues because we share a background, a cop, and administrative assistant, a smart/cute girl who asks me to go camping, a guy that thinks  he isn’t worthy but is more than that and then some, a graphic artist, a photographer, one that makes the most amazing lemoncello, a boss who is more than a boss-she’s a friend, and a director who gets me even though he thinks he doesn’t; a daycare provider, a Mary Kay Lady/credit union professional, an insurance provider, a teacher, and a mall manager…not to mention a mortgage specialist, and an NA.

I won’t mention any of your names, because I respect your anonymity on the interwebz, but I have to tell you that I love all of you. You each bring something delightful to the table. I might not be the brightest bulb in the pack, but I do have the bestest taste in friends. I surround myself with smart, creative, outside-the-box thinkers. I can’t go wrong with any of  you on my side, but I have ALL of you on my side.

Because I have been sidelined by personal issues during the last couple of months, I had to send a shout-out to all of you, because you all have kept me more sane through all this than I could have ever expected to do on my own.

And, hey…on the weigh-loss front? I’m down a total of 17 pounds now, give or take. 🙂

I love you guys…All of you.

And thank you, really. From the bottom of my heart. Some of you make me laugh, some of you make me cry, and some of you make me just think, and without you? Let’s just not go there.

Until next time….
