there's nothing like a girlfriend.
we grabbed a quick cup of coffee as we're
doin' this again tomorrow. but we both
needed to share a few stories....so we
squeezed in an extra session.
i told her about spreading stars.
she reached over and put her hand on my arm,
looked me in the eyes and said that it was
the perfect visual as she was absolutely sure
i was filled with them.
'well, everyone is', i said.
she pulled her hand back.
'oh no,' she said.
i laughed and said 'well, yeah, some people
seem kinda filled with curdled cottage cheese.'
we laughed and ran with that one.
and then she came back to me, saying she believed
i really did have stars inside me.
okay....so maybe that's a little out there and
but when you have someone you love and treasure
who loves and treasures you back like that....
who sees you when you just spent a lotta time not
being seen at all......
well, it almost makes you believe you really do
have stars inside you.
ya know.....i think that's what friends do.
they see our stars. and they make them glow.
how good that feels this morning.....
