I was just sitting here at my desk at work, surfing the net and reading all sorts of stuff about other people's lives - some good and some bad...For some reason, it hit me out of the blue as to how truly blessed I am. I am fortunate enough to have my health, after a life-threatening scare, a nice house, great parents and a few bucks in the bank. All in all, I have to say I have a pretty good life. And then my thoughts turned toward my friends. It is here that I consider myself truly fortunate. It is said that if you have one or two really close friends over the course of a lifetime, you are truly blessed. I'm proud to say I'm off the chart. I can think of ten without even trying. You all know who you are. These are people that I love dearly and have shared everything with. Almost everything. It has only been recently that I shared with them my darkest secret, afraid that they would no longer love me. Their reactions far exceeded my apparently limited concept of friendship. Not one turned their back on me. It was me that underestimated them. I only hope that when the time comes I can live up to their expectations. I love each of them and am very proud of them. These days folks don't tell their friends they love them as much as they should and I am no exception. And did I mention how smart they are? They are very, very smart. Smart enough to know that if they EVER mention this to me that I have the ability to transform myself (much like Diana Prince spinning into Wonder Woman) into a fire-breathing, obscenity-spouting, rabid pit-bull (in other words, not a nice guy) that enjoys annoying small children just for the hell of it. Yes, they are very smart.
