trying to deserve my friends
Whatever it was, reading TSO's blog made me want to take stock of the good things in my life; made me particularily aware of the best thing in my life. I am so blessed to have such great people in my life. I have been thinking of this very fact a lot lately as our friend CJ rejoined the Farm last week, taking on his old role (sort of?), working alongside B1 and TSO. It is in reflecting on CJ's return that I find myself taking stock in the relationships and the family I've created for myself here. I am thinking about how the lives of the people I am honored to call Farm family initially touched one anothers and how we've become interwoven; this brilliant and colorful tapestry. When I left the Farm, over 4 years ago, I left behind some of the best friends anyone could ever ask for, and now, as I look around, I find myself once again surrounded by these same wonderful people; moving forward, supporting one another.
I think it was Uncle Walt (Whitman) who said it best,
"I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I do not believe I deserved my friends."
