Well this time of year really gets me down 6 years ago today my dad took his life and to this day I am still bothered with the question of WHY. My freinds know this is a rough time for me so today they call me and tell me we are meeting for a spontaneous outing at Applebees, They wouldnt take no for an answer. So I go and I had the best time. Some times its real easy to get caught up with all the shit that goes on in life that we forget the most imporant things our family and our freinds. It is real easy to just shut out the ones we care for and the one's that care for us when times are bad. I am the worlds worse for that I am all into self preservation dont get close and you wont get hurt. But today showed me that its ok to let our friends see us hurt and cry cause that is what friends do. What started out as a bad day suddenly turned great I love my friends cause they sure know me and know what I need and do not take NO for an answer. Now I just have to figure out what to do with 2 bouquets of daisies and a cheap bottle of wine...(yeah that was the funniest part of the joke they all know I dont drink so Sharon graciously decided she could take it back home with her and take care of it properly we all had a great laugh. ) Applebee's will never be the same once our gang was there thank God I am in nursing and not a waitress I wouldnt make any tips! I guess that Tony Romo was right when he said life isnt always chocolate and rainbows. But to add to that quote I will say the chocolate and rainbows aren't near as beautiful as my friends are who needs chocolat and rainbows any way chocolate melts and rainbows fade but friends are a life long thing. So go hug your kids spouse and parents dont wait till tomorrow because tomorrow may be to late, tell them you love you. If you care about someone you really need to tell them cause they may leave before you ever get the chance to tell them. If I had one day with my dad I would say these three simple words... I forgive you.
