A Day with friends is always a good day and a day with dear friends is one to be cherished. I had such a day, to be cherished and it was, yesterday. Much of the day was getting ready for our time together and listening to friends who need an ear to bend.
Yesterday was not my typical day, from morning on I had calls from friends who for whatever needed to bend my ear. Some would consider this a nusience but to me it was that I have made those who know me comfortable enough to call and let me hear what it is they want or need to let me know.
I do not remember a time in my life when I was the one people went to for much besides work, if friends had things to be done I was on the list. This is so much different, I am mentor, friend and counselor. I have not often felt admired but this day gave me an overwhelming sense of admiration.
I spent the game time with wonderful friends and terrific food, a warm atmosphere and a time to be close.
The friends I have made at this time in my life are so much different from those in my early years. I seem to be more connected, more in tune, but perhaps that is age and experience coming through. We know who we are and yet are young enough and alive enough to feel the passion and still act on it.
For how these people have made me feel I can not but be there for them, it is what I have sought, it is what my life has been, I have always been the anchorpoint, the rock that others cling to, now I have found that again and in this my strength what I need to help me to carry on with what I need to accomplish.
I have found what it is that makes me whole in life, that sense of purpose and they are called friends. Through all the ups and downs it is the energy around me from which I draw the strength I need to carry out the tasks of each day. Knowing that I am needed gives me the will to push on, but not by just a few who expect it, but by the many who do not, yet wish to have their needs heard. Yes it was a super Sunday for me in so many ways, ways that most could not understand and I would be lost to explain, yet fulfilling the needs within and without that makes me who it is I am. Ya'all have a wonderful day
