I've been thinking (can you smell burning?). A lot. Probably too much in fact. It's my brother's birthday tomorrow. He's going to be ** years old. He's a bit upset by this as it's a milestone, and he's not really ready for it because like most of us he is still only thirteen inside. I love my brother - actually I love both my brothers...I've known them a long time! Family matters to me. I have many many friends whom I love - and so many of them have been incredibly supportive over the last few weeks (you know who you are)....and I count my dearest friends as part of my family anyway.
Anyway - what I was thinking is that I am extremely blessed and lucky to be surrounded by so many people who love me and who care for me. People who will take the time to listen to me, just listen.....simply listen and offer comfort, and advice. I have needed these listening ears over the last few weeks, and not one of my family or friends has let me down. Not one.
It makes me really just how lucky I am :) .....and I hope that I am as good a friend to them as they've been to me.
