Yesterday I was once again reminded of how important best friends are. I'm going to keep this short since I have to start getting ready for work at 7:45 and have some things I want to finish up with Milton first. I just wanted to say how grateful I am. Best friends will always tell you the truth about your interactions with other people, and their interactions with you. They will tell you the truth about yourself, and when you are feeling lost, they will describe to you and show you who you are, and give you the confidence and energy to be that person again. When someone is a best friend to me, or I am a best friend to someone else, it emphasizes for me the closeness of that connection. It also sometimes shows me how much I am not a best friend to other people, and makes me more patient and understanding with them. I believe there are specific aspects of friendship, though not all, that we can bring in some way or another to all our relationships, even with those people that we don't agree with, or don't want to work with. At any rate, it's morning. It's beautiful and I am grateful. Summer is here.
