I consider her a friend, too, and recently, when I was feeling particularly down about something, she offered me wisdom from one of her favorite scriptures: "Speak the truth in love."
And I really appreciated it.
He can take my angry/sad/hurt tears and turn them into ones of hilarious laughter, while still keeping it real.
She helps to remind me to stay focused and centered and to release all the negativity around me. And yeah, sometimes we do that with a few shots of Tequila, but focused and centered we get.
Real talk if I've ever heard it- she pulls no punches and pulls the mask off all the boogie-men I'm afraid of and says, "see? It's just a guy in a costume." And then everything just falls into place.
*smooches...smothered in positive energy. Here, have some...*
I get by with a little help from my friends...
