But seriously. You just want to throw out one of those internet or Hallmark card quotes about friends -
Friends are God's way of apologizing to us for our families.
I've had the chance to reconnect with some really great friends this summer--
Friends who have shown their love and support unceasingly. They've been relentless! And I love them for it. Always will.
Mrs. Eden Morris. Fresh from the Ze Tejas. Bosom buddies until the end. (Even though I lost most of my bosom) Eden and I performed in college together and I'm pretty sure I might not ever laugh more in my life than I did with her. The voice of an angel she has. And the patience of a Saint--raising 4 kids. A more positive, caring person you may never meet. And her sense of humor is kick butt. You'll get to learn more about her in my Meet My Readers section soon. She'll make you laugh, she'll make you cry, she's better than Cats.
"I'm leaning over, I'm leaning over, I'm not much taller than you. It's no big deal...act natural..."
"Stand up proud, you fool!"
"Goshdarn you, Smalls."
Miss Tracey Thompson -- straight from her music/dance/theatre and English teaching foolery in L.A. Tracey is one of the key players in the story of Molly & Vic. Ain't nobody like my Tracey Girl. Our late night talks and crazy escapades inspired me to be better. I needed her desperately and didn't even know it. God is good.
And to all you single men out there who read my blog (I know there are hundreds of you), Tracey is single. And fierce. And amazing. Truly.
Straight from the hood in Detroit, Mr. Courtney Casper. I do believe I creamed him on our trail run. He claimed it was the altitude. Courtney is one of my very oldest friends, dating back to the 3rd grade. (We had the best teacher, Mrs. Webber). What an absolute thrill to combine two of my worlds at once. Courtney has 4 kids and one on the way and is almost done with medical school. Oh, and running a marathon soon. Who does these things? My friends.
Friends are like bras; close to your heart and there for support.
End cheesy quote.
