WORD OF THE DAY: abstruse: difficult to comprehend.
i thought the word was fitting for today. i have never had many friends, but the ones i do hold close are more like family. i spent today with one of these friends. how we became friends is really abstruse. by all reason we are so much alike that the sheer knowledge that another exists should drive us to rage. instead we became fast friends. it is rare to have a friend that will tell you when you are wrong. most friends are willing to walk with you when the road is easy, but as soon as the grade of the road rises or gets a little bumpy they are no where to be found. rare is it to find a friend that will bring you bright colored daisies after a miscarriage. if you are lucky enough to have a friend like this, tell them that they are loved and how much they mean to you. more importantly be a friend like that to your friends. in the sermon on sunday the youth minister said "we reap what we sow". this is very true if you sow love and trust with your friends that is what you will reap, but not all people are capable of this. keep an eye out for these posers. they should be beaten mercilessly. just kidding. they should not be entrusted with your heart. to my friends thanks. as unlovable as i often think i am, you still manage to think i'm great. thanks. pattylicious i thought you would enjoy this quote. FOOD FOR THOUGHT: in the words of Robert McCloskey "I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant."
