Do you know the best thing about telling your friends that you love them?
Having them tell you back. And hug you hard. And tell you that they miss you. And having them want to spend time with you. And hopefully bring you cake.
Because in the words of Sally Field they like me. They really, really like me.
And at the risk of sounding vain I understand why they like me. I am quite likable and sarcastic enough to be humorous.
I have many interesting anecdotes about my children, I can be quite blunt at times and I’m chatty with strangers.
I would like me if I wasn’t me. Does that make sense?
But you see I know everything that is wrong with me. I see it everyday in the mirror and I hear it in the nights when I can’t sleep.
I know that when I see my friends I don’t see their size, shape, colour or gender. I just see them and their kindness and their love that I don’t take for granted.
And so for those who see me the same way I just wanted to say thanks.
