It just occurred to me what an amazing group of people I have on my friends list.

I have such strong individuals - who have experienced such things that would crush many people and not only risen to the occasion, but also overcome and survived to fight another day. People enduring cancer, illness of dear ones, the heartache of losing things they held close. You've helped me to not only see that Bad Things happen, but that there is a strength of the human spirit to help us endure.

I have talented individuals - many fabulous musicians, guitarists, opera singers, songwriters... photographers, comic creators, painters. Artistic MacGuyvers and ninjas of yarn. You've shown me that a beauty in creativity exists and on many levels. As I'm not an overly creative person myself (I've come to terms that I'm a person that thrives and creates more on logic than creativity) but can greatly appreciate the arts. I live vicariously through all the beauty you create.

I have individuals who have appeared on Wheel of Fortune and Dirty Jobs.

I have highly intelligent individuals who make me scritch my head and long for being able to have such conversations with others. You make me truly wonder what I would be like, had I actually focused on learning throughout my lifetime, instead of learning only if I HAD to. I know that I'm smart - I was almost skipped ahead a grade, but it had been decided that I would thrive with people my age - but never wanted to apply myself. Okay, this portion got off on a tangent...

I have intuitive individuals who exist more on a spiritual existence, if that makes sense.

Basically, I'm blessed for knowing every one of you. Thank you for being! I'm more for meeting you, and your individual life stories never cease to amaze me.

You make me feel all glowy inside.

I'm thankful we met, too.

Freaking hell, yes, woman, as well as the intelligent individuals!

I forgot to add something about well-traveled people that are able to bring so many worldly things to the table, which you would also fall under. I still occasionally think about when you fell in... was it Italy?.. and cracked your head open and the (in retrospect) hilarity that ensued afterwards!

At least they spoke English, yes? ;)

I totally missed that one!!! That's what I get for going through periods where I don't read or respond!

Awww, that's so nice of you to say. You mostly mean me right? The others on your FL are just back up?

Though after I finished the post, I thought about you and your teaching profession and all the amazing jobs that people on my friends list have.

Thank you..

Life is full of ups and downs and it is important to have friends to share it with. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have friends like you.

This post has done two things:

1. It has made me feel good about me existing

and

2. It has made me realize how special the people around me are as well.

For both of those things, I thank you.

Wow, this was so touching and moving and I don't even know what sparked this. I will thank you very kindly and very much for the words they made me feel great at a time when I needed. I'd also like to say that I hope you having forgotten the awesomeness that resides in yourself. Having read your journal (this one at least) from one end to the other I've gotten to read about some of the crushing things you've gone through and you've turned out oh so well that if I could get people I've known to write a book titled how to be human you would have more than a few chapters.

One of the things strong people have in common is that they have the support of their peers, no matter if they aren't the same age level etc etc, they all give support of the same structure of life. I am glad to give any support I can and I am more than Happy to call you my peer.
