'10--you have great things to offer

We've been in Wichita 4 1/2 years. The days have flopped one over the other and it seems life has always existed here.

I owe that to my friends.

I love that they listen to me talk about deep stuff when most of the time I'm flamboyant; they know there's this part of me that wants to stretch, move forward, heal. And they let me do that as gracefully as this uncoordinated mess can.

I love that they say my belly is cute-pregnant or not. Ha.

I love that they read the blog and tell me to keep writing.

I love that they send an email or text asking how my day's going.

I love that they tell me how I can be a good friend through difficulty...if only I could eliminate heartache altogether...

I love that despite the crummy choices of my past, they still think I'm cool.

I love that they understand the Panera Cookie Situation.

I love that they handle my mismatched clothes as I try to "shop my closet".

I love that they'll be doing those very same things in '10. Happy New Year to my Wichita family!
