There’s an old saying that goes something like this…come into a little money, and your “friends” will start coming out of the woodwork, but need to borrow some, and they are nowhere to be found. I suppose that’s a true enough adage. But I’ve found that in times of crisis, I seem to have more friends than I realized, and I find that immensely comforting.
I really do appreciate the wealth of wonderful friends who have supported me in tough times. Amazingly, some friends that I hadn’t seen since high school have become some of the best supporters I have. To Chris, Chet, Vivian, Melissa, Tabitha and all of the other wonderful friends who have offered a shoulder, an ear, and even a couch, I thank you.
I haven’t slept in going on three days due to a stressful family situation, and so I don’t suspect tonight’s blog will be all that entertaining. I may even fall asleep writing it, which would make it a dual purpose blog/sleep aid. Since I could use a good night’s sleep, I won’t be too hard on myself for not writing more than a few paragraphs tonight.
I was thinking about that little adage about friends and money, and I wonder if maybe my wealth of friends could be an omen of good fortune to come. That would be unexpected, but not unappreciated. I bought three scratch off tickets at the grocery store tonight. I haven’t scratched them yet because if I wait a little while, I can pretend I won, and it just might be true. A nice windfall wouldn’t solve all of the problems, but it would certainly pay for a very good shrink! (or a completely new wardrobe so I can worry in style) Then again, a nice long cruise would be very relaxing. I think I’ll hold onto those tickets a little while longer. It certainly can’t hurt. I could compile an entire list of things to spend my winnings on. But that will have to wait until a time when I can keep my eyes open. Maybe tomorrow or the next day.
Until the next time…I’ll be falling asleep in 5…4…3…2…
