Three little words that mean so much

I LOVE YOU! Have you told somebody lately how much they mean to you? They might shine like silver stars on the outside, but nobody knows what battle is going on inside. If you have friends that take you under their wings on days you feel to weak to walk or takes the time to write an old-fashioned letter — you know you have a keeper. I give my love as often as I can – to my friends, family and of course my handsome husband.

Tonight I received a call from an unknown number — a call I would have  ignored if it weren’t for the fact that it was past midnight and I was getting ready for bed. Was there something wrong? Was anyone in trouble? That  was my first response. But when I heard the screaming voice “Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeee!” I let out a sigh of relief. It was my Ally giving me a call to tell me she loved me. Isn’t that the sweetest? That is when I find friends I connect with on all levels and with whom I can be myself without trying to make the other feel a special way – we can just co-exist. There might be months between our talks but it always feels the same.
