The past few weeks have been a good reminder that in life, not everyone is on your side. Not everyone is your friend. Some people, especially people you meet in various ways through your employment, have their own agenda. Spending a ton of time with them out of the necessity of work does not confer friendship.
And those people who, despite no longer working with them or seeing them much, are still close to your heart? Those people who you can call up and ask a favor, and they can do the same of you and you’ll gladly help? Those people who, despite time apart or distance, stay in your life and thoughts? Count yourself lucky because they are friends, and friends like that are rare and true.
I am thankful for my family, my friends and my homelife.
It’s supposed to stay cold through Sunday, the first day the temperature is predicted to rise above 50 degrees. I’m not holding my breath, though. It seems like every time a 50 degree day is in the extended forecast, it is pushed out another week. Today’s high is supposed to reach 27. More than 20 degrees below the average high for today. We still have a ton of snow, so I’m not sure if there are any signs of spring poking up through the earth. This is the latest spring that I recall. Monday’s sunrise at the shelter was lovely, though.
