Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

True Friends will…

The other day I had a meltdown..

you know those days, weeks, years where everything piles up

and piles up…

you smile and work thru it..

I can deal with this…

but it piles up…

the smile cracks to a grimace

it piles more,  gathering force like a magnate

a crap magnate…

Hello! Give me more to deal with!

Poor Jo, called and unknowingly added to it

the landslide was large,

the magnate was full

& I exploded to tears, yelling, snotty tears

then I was mad because I cried

that I couldn’t deal with everything properly

then I got mad at myself for melting down

and being weak,

which created more snotty tears,

everything snowballs to a

full on meltdown

It wasn’t pretty

Poor Jo, was just being a good friend, sister…..

took the full brunt of EVERYTHING

If you can cower in fear, shock on the phone…

I think she did 

Poor thing

we haven’t really spoken since

until this morning…..

she sent me the following e card

True Friendship.
You WON'T see 

Cutesy little smiley faces
On this card-

Just the stone cold truth

Of our great friendship

When you are sad,

I will jump on the person

Who made you sad

Like a spider monkey

Jacked up on Mountain Dew!!!

2. When you are blue,

I will try to dislodge

Whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile,

I will know you are

Plotting something

That I must be involved in.

4. When you're scared,

We will high tail it out of here.

5. When you are worried,

I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse

It could be until you

Quit whining, ya big baby!!!!

6. When you are confused,

I will use little words.

7. When you are sick,

Stay away from me

Until you are well again.

I don't want whatever you have.

8. When you fall,

I'll pick you up

And dust you off--

After I laugh my rear off!!

9. This is my oath...

I pledge it to the end.

'Why?' you may ask;

-- because you are my FRIEND!

Friendship is like peeing your pants,

Everyone can see it,

BUT only YOU

Can feel the

True warmth.


I’m so glad she’s still a part of my life!

  2. Oh I know those meltdowns! How wonderful to have someone so special to call sister and friend.

  7. Katy, What a great sister! Wish I had one, only brothers, who by the way are pretty useless!

  8. Now that's what I call a friend. :o)


  9. I love a good pity party. Because, when they are over, Our Father reaches down, picks us up, and sets us back to his work without condemnation! I am so glad the tool he used for you is Humor!
