Today I am grateful as all get out. Grateful for my tribe, for friends turned family. It’s been a rough year. The thing is, with every hardship there is a silver lining. New skill sets. New friends. New strength. I’ve found the silver lining in the 5 surgeries I’ve gone through in the last year. Actually I’ve found several! I have found people that whether I ask for help or not, are there for me and mine. I am a proud and stubborn fool, who loathes asking for help. Thankfully I have found people that ignore my words and read between the lines. Anyone can say “Let me know if you need anything!” “I’m here if you need help!” It’s the ones who show up no matter what you say, because they know you’re full of it. My husband and I give, a lot. We are an all in kind of folks. We don’t half ass friendships, sometimes that bites us in the ass when we realize those we’ve shed blood sweat and tears for, don’t feel the same way about friendship. It’s heart breaking but for every dozen douche bags that claimed they had our backs, there’s at least a few good solid folks that actually meant it. So thanks douchers, for leading us to the ones worth fighting for.
