Daily Prompt: My friend needs me? I’m on my way.

75-GarryAboardNK-84_0279I don’t use the word “friend” lightly or easily. A friend is a treasure, money in the bank, my life’s backup plan. The go-to persons who were there for me when the only light I could see were the headlights of oncoming trains.

Me and Cherrie

So — in this time of thinning friend populations, as so many friends move into retirement locations too far for me to travel, or pass into realms no one can visit — any friend in need is someone for whom I will do anything. Pretty much.

Sometimes I wish my friends needed me as much as I depend on them. Because honestly, without my friends, I’m not sure this life would be bearable and I want them to know how very much I care. I can (and do) say how much I care, but I wish I had more ways to show it. Saying it doesn’t seem to be nearly enough.

All of you: I really, really love you! No blushing or “aw shucks-ing” because you know you are!

  1. I’ve lived with great friends then for a time without friends, or so I thought. It was a horrible place to be in. I weeded through people and now have those people I’ld do anything for.
