So I called Henry. He wasn't picking up. Then I called my oldest friend. She didn't pick up either.
I started to watch a movie. I wasn't paying attention to it.
Then my best friend called me back. She listened to me, advised me, distracted me and then she made me laugh and laugh.
A few hours later Henry called. Concerned about me. With all of his problems, he's worried about me.
I felt terrible, and then I felt validated as a person and as a friend.
Each day in August you are to
post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it
doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a
great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in
our lives, our communities, and the world.
