So, I sat down to write inside of a birthday card for one of my best friends the other day, and my pen spent a good minute hanging in the air before it touched the paper. How can I sum it up in one card? "It" being how much she means to me. How her friendship is so many things in my life: a joy, a relief, a lifesaver, a map, a thermostat. Since it was way too much to put into the funny card that I had chosen, I instead summed it up with the immortal words of Ke$ha.
"Your Love is my Drug".
I laughed while I wrote it, but all day the words echoed in my mind and became more and more true. Where would I be without my amazing friends? They literally keep me out of a psychiatrist's chair, and off of meds. "Your love is my drug" could not be more true!
So this one goes out to all the ladies (and fellas) who keep me sane. You know who you are. Please also know, that:
"You are the sunshine of my life" and "I get by with a little help from my friends".
