I have been blessed with the right people at the right time all the time. Lately I have bemoaned about my lack of a man/significant other/boo thang, but I just want to take a minute to say how very grateful I am for my significant others of my sex, my girls! My girls push me, prod me, uplift me, tell me off, get on my nerves, make me laugh and keep me from crying. Though most of my girls are far and farther I am so thankful for each and every one of them.
There’s my Best Friend in New York who I’ve legitimately known for 20 years. We were even picked on by the same kid in preschool (I’ve forgiven him; she hasnt). She’s the friend that I cant get rid of even if I wanted to because she has enough blackmail on me for three lifetimes.
There’s my homie-sister-friend who I made be my friend. Literally. Last year she got a job I applied for and I was following her on Twitter and I told her that she was gonna be my friend. We just got back from Jamaica 2 weeks ago. She challenges all my sensibilities and make me rethink my thoughts. That’s a friend. She moved to NY from NC and 6 months later I moved to NC from NY and we joke that neither state could handle us together.
Then there’s my… she has too many titles to even list. But she has such a dynamic personality and she is the consummate performer. And when I want to be flirtatious and feisty, I turn into her. Is that creepy?
I have old friends and new friends, friends I met be chance and friends who I had no choice but to befriend. I even have a friend from another planet. No really.
Sometimes we get so caught up in what we dont have that we miss out on what have right there. So thank you for being you and for being you with me. I love you and need you more than you’ll ever know.
