My Girls!

Ok I was inspired to write this after Monique and I were having a conversation. I have become pretty good friends with some people that I have never met. That is strange. I am normally pretty skeptical of people and to be my friend I have to really feel connected to you.
All my life I have had quite a bit of acquaintances. I have never really had a shortage of people around me. It just takes a lot for me to consider you a friend. Now, I'm not saying that being my friend is this huge privilege, or that I am a hard person to impress. I'm just saying that I am the kind of person who takes a while to trust someone.
In the last couple of months I have people that I actually consider FRIENDS that I have never met face to face. It's hard to explain how you can feel so close to people who you have never even really heard their voice in a conversation. How odd is it that people who you have never met can be the ones who really know how you are feeling?
I know some people don't believe in God but I do. So if you don't and you will be offended now would be a good time to stop reading! I think that God sends people in to your life when you really need them. Before I met these wonderful women, I would say I was pretty thoroughly depressed. I have been sick for a long period of time and nobody understands me. Even though the people around me were trying to help they always seemed to say something stupid that often times just made things worse.
Monique and Falanya in particular have been saving graces to me. I'm not trying to turn this into another "loving my people" article, I'm just trying to make a point. Out of the millions and billions of people who use twitter, or just the internet in general, I was able to find these 2. I feel like these guys get me and they care and that is HUGE! They are able to cheer me up when I'm down and they really do understand what I'm going through.
My point is that it's really strange how these things come in to your life when you feel like you can't take it anymore. I think God uses people to take care of you. God uses people to help you when you really need them the most.

I think it's a priveledge to be your friend. You are an amazing person who gives others, including me, strength. You have helped me in more ways than can be counted. And I am honored to call you a friend!

How dare you give me goose bumps and cause tears to well up in my already blurry eyes!!! *sniff*

You guys have helped me in ways that some of my closet friends haven't been able to, not to throw them under the bus, but it's you both that can understand the pain, and the fatigue, and the sleeplessness, and all the rest that goes with our diseases. The late-night sillinesses and belly-shaking laughs have been great for my mental and physical well-being and I thank you both so very much for that!!

*Heart* you guys!
