I'm very thankful for. . .

I'm going to mostly write this post mostly about one person, but it's really dedicated to many people--those who are good friends in my life. Please don't be put off as I sing praises about Speak; I could say wonderful things about all of you, but this time I'm mostly going to talk about Speak, probably because I'm glad to have her back again after recent absences, for good reasons, mind you. I can already see the big grin on her face as she reads this and hear her tell me that she knows it because "it's me" (meaning herself of course, but it wouldn't be Speak if she didn't say that).

Ever since she moved in a year ago, she has made my life a much more interesting and happy place. From the sassiness she brings out in me (I love it as much as she does) to the new ideas she often forces me to think about (or rather presents to me and then I keep thinking about them) to the trips we take to Loopy Land, and Stars Hollow, together, we've had a fabulous time! Yes, she is officially one of my favorite people ever.

She just wrote a blog post about a song that talks about the concept that "All will be well." Okay it's really about a song that mentions that phrase, but it still impacted me as I read about it. I like that idea because it's a good reminder that even if things aren't going swimmingly at one moment in time, they will get better. I will pass through the hard times that come my way and rise triumphant on the other side. All will be well. Thank you for that insight, Speak!

I also need to give a little shout out to my very dear Heidi and Jamie, who provided a much-needed escape last Sunday. Since Speak was gone, I was going to be left alone with Stew and Smile, her boyfriend. Don't get me wrong--I love Stew dearly but hanging out by yourself with a seriously dating couple is just not fun. However, Heidi and Jamie were kind enough to open their home to me and provided great company, wonderful conversation and some quality Gilmore Girls time last Sunday! Thanks, ladies!

I would be very ungrateful if I didn't say thanks to all of the wonderful friends in my life. It almost makes me cry thinking about how blessed I am to have such good friends. You know you who are, and perhaps you're even reading this right now. :) Please know that although I've mentioned only Speak, Jamie and Heidi in this post, that I am grateful to each and every one of you who has a special place in my heart for being such a dear friend.

It seems I totally reinforced your first paragraph a couple of minutes ago when I made the comment about my profile pic on Facebook . . .

But let me just say here and now: I'm glad for you too. I'm glad to have a partner in crime. Erm, I mean, in mischievousness and sassiness. I'm glad to have a fabulous friend and roommate who listens well. And I'm glad I live with at least one person who still loves me despite the obvious fact I am insane. :)

Also, have I told you today that I love you? Yes, indeed, channeling Will Ferrell: I love you, I love you, I LOVE you!

Sometimes I am glad that I moved away...

But mostly not...

Until I remember I'd have to live with the two of you, Josh Groben and Stars Hallow.

You know you miss us. Don't deny it.
