You've Got A Friend In Me....

Wouldn't you agree that Buzz Lightyear and Woody have the ideal friendship?  confession: I cried in Toy Story 3.  Ya....those toys can really pull at your heart strings. by golly!

Today, my post is a little different than usual.  It isn't for anyone else other than myself.  Lately, I have felt a little distant from the people around me, particularly my friends.  For lack of better words, I sat in my apartment feeling.....odd.  Not sad or mad.....odd.  (just nod your head like you understand me. gracias.)  It stemmed from an activity that I attended  where I seemed to go unnoticed for the most part.  Don't get me wrong....I like to be invisible at times! And I sure as heck don't crave attention....ummm.....NO. Like all human beings, however, I love to have friends.  You know, the people who make you feel comfortable and you can't help but smile when you are around them no matter the topic of conversation.  Sometimes, your friend tank just gets a little lower than at other times.  This is life.  That is when reality fades away and....
**the sound of a cynder block hitting my head.

Ya, I needed that. 
I realized at that point that it wasn't that people were avoiding me like I was the Old Maid. It was my fault for not being a friend first.  Back in the day, I was pretty good at my friend making skills but diaper changing and goo goo ga ga has made me pretty rusty in the friend department.  Do not FRET, dear friends or shall I say computer screen that is staring at me.  I decided that in order to have a friend you need to be a friend. ya....super profound....don't laugh.  

So, ya.  I love ya'll who have shared your smiles and laughs with me & I am excited for the future and the new friends that it will bring.  Forgive me for my neglect and laziness as an amiga to all of you.  I am determined to try my best at being open and willing to put myself out there and discover the happiness from finding a new friend and continuing to always be that friend no matter where life takes you.  

yada, yada, yada. is some random pictures of friends from the past.... love ya all!

"You've got troubles, well I've got 'em too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
We stick together and we see it through
You've got a friend in me"
(lyrics from You've Got A Friend In Me)

Goal this something nice for someone! Brighten a day, hey!
