I PHEWPED: The Error of My Ways

This little bloggie post is dedicated to Mrs. T and Sweet D. I've always considered myself a good friend. The kind of friend, I'd like to have. And, in being a good friend? Guess what ya' get? Good friends...really good friends that really love you and are there for you. I do have lots of friends, and a couple really, really close ones. They are such good friends that they put up with me and my "ways." And, I can count on them to be there and to understand and to accept "me." Well, I guess I'm resting on my laurels...because it has come to my attention that....I haven't been a very good friend. So, today? I had to pull my foot out of my A$$. I was sweetly and lovingly enlighted that I haven't been seeing things quite clearly. I've always been a firm believer in seeing things from the other side. Everyone needs to step back and look at life in "the other person's shoes." You know what? I've been expecting everyone to see things "in my shoes." But, I haven't taken the time to step out of my own and see the other view. I've been too busy wrapped up in "my little world" and how I want everything in a straight line, black on the black side, white on the white side and any gray is swept away. So, I apologize. Thank you Mrs. T and Sweet D for loving me so and accepting me... Where would I be if I didn't have y'all to love me, toot my horn, support me, encourage me, and listen to me bitch....and watch me obssess and laugh [at]with me about it? Thank you to ALL my friends. My Bloggie Buddy, Miss Allie, Farmer's wife JK, Mrs. "Teach" L....if I listed everyone I'd fill the internet. [See what a a lucky Gal I am?] You may wonder why I put this in bloggie world. Well, I want my friends to know how important they are to me. And, I want the rest of the world to know how important my friends are to me too. My friends are always "tooting my horn" and "stroking my ego." Well, they deserve a big TOOOOT for being so wonderful....they also deserve some "ego stroking" from me. We are lucky to have the people close to us who love us. The good thing is that good friends allow each other to take advantage now and then. But, as a good friend we need to also remember to be selfless at times too. I've been allowed to be selfish. Now, it's my turn to be a little "less" about myself for awhile. FYI? Be sure to hug your friends today.

You are lucky to have such great friends and they are lucky to have you.

We always need to remember not to take our friends for granted. We're all guilty of it from time to time though.

Ditto Knight and Jay. It doesn't get much more sage than that. ;)
