Ode to Friends

I sometimes really miss my friends.  Sometimes it gets to the point where I just want to jump on a plane and go to Oklahoma for a few days.  I might have to do it soon to because I am a bit stir crazy.  I haven't met a friend here yet.  I know people but none of them are who I would call a friend.  I miss those Friday nights with my bff in Shawnee.  I miss having someone to go get a pedicure with.  I really want to go to a party and let my hair down (which is normally down anyways) and just have good adult conversation.  I want my house filled with laughter.  I want to have movie nights at the drive-in again.  I know we will have those days again.  It is just hard to open up to new people when you already have such good friends that are just far away.  

I found this poem and wanted to share it. It is to all my friends in Oklahoma (and KS) !! Miss and love you guys!  

Ode To My True Friend

The day I met you
I found a friend -
And a friendship that
I pray will never end.

Your smile - so sweet
And so bright -
Kept me going
When day was as dark as night.

You never ever judged me,
You understood my sorrow.
Then you told me it needn't be that way
And gave me the hope of a better tomorrow.

You were always there for me,
I knew I could count on you.
You gave me advice and encouragement
Whenever I didn't know what to do.

You helped me learn to love myself
You made life seem so good.
You said I can do anything I put my mind to
And suddenly I knew I could.

There were times when we didn't see eye to eye
And there were days when both of us cried.
But even so we made it through:
Our friendship hasn't yet died.

Circumstances have pulled us apart,
We are separated by many miles.
Truly, the only thing that keeps me going
Is my treasured memory of your smile.

This friendship we share
Is so precious to me,
I hope it grows and flourishes
And lasts unto infinity.

You are so extra-special to me
And so this to you I really must tell:
You are my one true friend,
My Guardian Angel.

Our friendship is one-in-a-million
So let's hold on to it and each other.
We cannot let this chance of pure bliss fly away
For there will never be another.

I love you.
I will always love you.

Kinda sad we didn't get to hang out more! Hugs! I am sooo super proud of you! You are doing wonderful. Life has been tough sometimes and you stand strong. keep your chin up. We are all a phone call or a IM away!

A New Mom

I know how you feel. When we moved to MD from NY 3yrs ago I thought I would go crazy from staring at the white walls in my living room. Slowly but surely we started to develop friends. I hate moving to a new location...I hate change period.
