I was with a friend a few days ago, and he was whining because he had to possibly borrow money from his father - who is rich but they don't exactly get along - so I reminded him how lucky he was that he had someone to call. He understood, but still grumbled, because his dad is HARD.
I feel lucky, because occasionally - along with looking in the mirror and saying, "I'm good enough, and smart enough, and GODDAMMIT, YOU'RE ONE ORNERY SOMEBITCH!!" - you guys remind me it is so.
Much love - and "Thanks" to you all.
