Blogtober 10th: Brought you by…Friends

October 10, 2014

In the face of many meetings and much grading today, my friends have kept me sane.  In the face of much negativity and many slings and arrow this week, my friends have talked me off the ledge and back to the green valley floor.

With hugs, with iced chai latte, with an In-n-Out burger (well-done, animal style), with a listening ear, with a sympathetic shoulder, with laughter, with loving reassurances, with insightful reading, with cogent advice, with cards, with phone calls lengthy, with texts and private messages, with encouragement, with prayer…they have kept me from shedding my clothes and lying down in the snow to die of hypothermia.

I only wield the gentlest of hyperbole.  This isn’t as exaggerated as you probably think it is.

However, even on the darkest days and nights, I have a constellation of beautiful, steady, bright, and twinkling friends.  I consider each star a gift, a blessing.
