This past weekend has seen a lot of high points to say the least. I am getting to know some of my friends just a bit better, and learning more about them than what I originally thought. Just because you see a person in one situation does not automatically mean that it’s the only part of their lives. The more you take time to actually get to KNOW someone, the more you appreciate the friendships you create. Reciprocation is a huge part of this, and without it, things are very much one-sided. You have to give in order to receive, for one cannot survive for very long without the other. Am I waxing philosophical here? Sorry about that…..
It’s just a few days until vacation, and I can leave the insane asylum that is my regular 5-day-a-week job behind and actually relax! Yes, I will miss my friends here while I’m gone, but it’s not like it’s forever or anything….I will be back to see them again. It’s like my friend Raven says…family comes first, and that is “chip truth” there (a little term my friend Anjanette taught me – kinda like the ‘undeniable truth’ or something like that). That two weeks will see a lot of family bonding-type stuff as we see things that my better half has not seen in a long time, and that the rest of us have never seen before outside of the pictures on TV.
If the rest of this year goes as well as the past few weeks have, then I’m sure 2002 will be a really wonderful year indeed.
