About Friendship

A friend sent me a note this week that made me cry. She said she was using Thanksgiving as an excuse to make resolutions with relevance to things that she is thankful for. She said that she was thankful for our friendship, that I had really helped her in the transition to two children, and that even though we don't see eachother too often, she is thankful for the fact that we can pick up where we left off with no hard feelings. It really made me cry.

I feel like since Remick was born I've been apologizing non-stop for my life - "my life's a little crazy right now because..." In a lot of ways I've felt like I barely have had anything to give to anybody else, which of course is never true. It sure made me feel good to know that I had impacted someone. When, by the way, will I feel calm enough to not have to apologize for life? Ever?

Also this week, I got to see some really good friends from college for dinner (without kids nonetheless!) It is so nice to be able to pick up where we left on (even if they all seem pretty glamourous to me. I felt like an boring mom compared to them.) It's nice that I still like them a lot all these years later.
