Especially when they are from awesome people.
I have always held the idea that it isn’t how many times you “hang out” with a person that dictates the type of friends you are. It is how you spend the time with a person, even if it is only a few moments in a year. For me, friendship is based on thoughtfulness, respect and honesty. Those I keep close exhibit all of these and I reciprocate. No matter if days or years pass, those who have been accepted into my “Army of Positivity” always find the most opportune time to remind me of why they are so special to me.
This morning, I had one such reminder. I received a greeting from one of the strongest, funniest, most loyal women I’ve ever met. The message came from New York…and was in all green. She moved to rural NY a few years ago and it has been difficult to keep in contact, but when it does happen, its always a delight. This time, she sent me a photo of her view. She had been catching up on my blog and thought I’d enjoy all of the green. How I did enjoy the green and the thoughtfulness behind it. It’s something so simple, but to me, the simplest things are usually the most meaningful.
...Dummy, you are beautiful.
