Oh, y'all. Just crazy, I'm telling you.
I took a trip to Cedar City last week to grab some essentials from my storage unit (going back hopefully next week to get the rest). It was a kamikaze 2 day sitch.
I got to see Emma and take her and her friends to get ice cream.
I got to see Awesome and have some vittles at our favorite spot in town, Don Miguel's.
I got to see Mr. and Mrs. Hilarious and have coffee at The Grind.
I ran into other dear, dear friends.
After being in town for a few hours, I was overwhelmed by unexpected feelings. And I cried. At The Grind.
The feelings. Shit.
Emotions were lingering there. Like someone had a huge ink stamp and just started stamping Emotion Names all over the place, like:
Primary President (yes, that is an emotion name)
Kids, hate me
Kids, love me
Friends, really family now
Fake Smiles That Become Real and Visa Versa
As I started to trickle tears out of my eye holes, it all hit me. All of these things AT ONCE. AT ONE TIME! ARE YOU GETTING THIS????
Most of all of these things...
It was 'Home' that struck me. All the good, bad, ugly, mixed-orientation, in the name of Jesus Christ Amen that struck me.
Oh my god. I needed friends at that minute. And I had them. Thank you God, Universe, Tom Cruise, and FB for the friends that love. Friends that love and love and love and help you hide the bodies (or ghosts, as it were that day).
Forget the word 'friend'. Its so much, muchly much, many much more than that. I need a new word...like...my Right Arm or my Left Foot or my Driving Force.
Mother of All! I will ALWAYS be okay.
Because I have friends.
