It's Friday and I'm under a massive deadline for my next book (yay!) so you guys get to be totally weirded out by this collection of strange stuff that will make you ask "What the hell did I just watch?"
I have a confession to make, and I know it's going to get me in trouble.
I'm one of those girls. A girl who doesn't have a gaggle of girlfriends they hang out with. Or even one girlfriend they call everytime there's good news or bad news or even no news but they just have to call anyway.
And that's not to say I don't have female friends, because I do, and more than a few. I've met most of them through work, or they're in the neighborhood. If they invite me over, I almost always go, and I extend an invitation anytime I have something going on at our house. Since the divorce, that doesn't happen much, though. At work, I have lunch with them and I share my home-baked goodies whenever I bring them in.
But I just didn't get whole, "I need my girlfriends around me," thing.
It's finally Friday! And for some of us in the good ole USA, that means a three day weekend! My tax return is in and I have a metric BUTTLOAD of writing to do this weekend on the second book (book one is out and doing pretty well so far)! All in all, not a bad way to kick off a weekend.
But before I get rolling, here's a random collection of stuff that made me laugh. Enjoy!
I saw this on Reddit last week - a user found this tied to a deflated balloon in Jefferson, MO. The text reads simply:
I miss you so much
I just want you to
know that I really am
sorry for hurting you. I made
it mom. I made it through high
school. I love you Momma.
I love you so much.
Sincerely, [name obscured]
Tell the people you love how you feel, and do it while they're still alive. Tell them I love you. Tell them I'm sorry. Tell them they made a difference in your life. Save yourself the deep and abiding recriminations of never getting that opportunity again after it's too late.
And above all, remember that while it may be too late to tell them, or show them, it's never too late to make them proud of the person you are. That's on you, and only you have the power to honor their memory, and validate their faith in you.
They're watching. And whoever you are in Jefferson, your mom is very, very proud of you.
