Being my friend
I actually had a conversation with a long time friend and asked, quite honestly, if they still wanted to be my friend. I had to tell them some unpleasant things. The kind of things you don't want to ever hear a friend tell you, and you don't want to have to tell a friend. Fortunately the answer was yes.
If you are on my friends list here. I will do my best to be your friend. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to be your cheerleader. I love to wave the pom pom. I won't wear the little outfit...but love to wave the pom pom.
I will, however, send you a swift kick when you need it. Which I hope you accept it for what it is. It is me caring enough to want the best for you.
It is a fine line between a big virtual hug, and a swift kick. And I hope I can tell when you need the hug and not the kick..... but if I miss it and kick when I should hug....it may be because I needed a hug.
If you are my friend here, we are in this together. Kicks and hugs will get us where we all want to be. So accept my virtual hug right now, and know I am glad you are here with me. Then go do something so I don't have to kick you!
