Sharing in the form of blogging these days has been a joke...

I am "learning" to be a good friend to these wonderful people around me. I am just sooo clueless on what I am supposed to do and especially how I am supposed to feel.
Is there a book about how to be a good friend? Or do you just screw up, make stupid comments, big mistakes and whatever and hope that you are forgiven?
I do believe "learning" to be a good friend is a lifelong lesson. Even though everyone seems to be so different...in such different places in their lives...searching for a range of things...we all desire and need one thing- to be cared for. When I say cared for...a number of feelings come to mind to determine that phrase...supported, encouraged, loved unconditionally, easily forgiven, etc. Figuring out how to make someone feel as though they are continually cared for to me is the definition of a what a good friend is. Because we all grow and change emotionally throughout our lives, what we need in a friend changes too...which in turn often makes it hard to always know what a. we ourselves need in a friend and b.what our friends truly need.
You are SO not clueless on how to be a good friend my dear. Maybe what you need in a friend is changing (or has changed) and so now you are starting to question what you provide as a friend yourself? I too question what it is I provide for my friends and those I spend my time with. Not always am i that impressed with myself...but, during those questionable times I go back to what I love... searching for ways that I can show my friends that I truly care for them...for them to see outwardly what's in my heart.

Meterologist Marty Venicique didn't warn me about the golf ball sized flakes. :
So...one of my absolute favorite movies came out on DVD today- JUNO! :)
Just a quick hello...haven't written anything in a while. Maybe it's because i'm away from my house from 8am-10pm over the past few days...booo. How did my life get so busy? I know I bring it on to myself...adding things here and there...to help me "balance" my work with adequate amount of "play". But...play ends up taking time and energy as well. A lesson that I am learning by being thrown into the fire these days.

I'm too lazy to have to think about putting sentences together tonight, so here are some statements...:)
- Playing sports as I continue to get older is depressing...my body absolutely refuses to do anything with grace or power anymore...it's a sadness. My neck is going to hurt tomorrow from volleyball tonight...it was rough on me.
- I love it when Maili (Romi) says or types "dearie" because I think she got it from me...It makes me feel special. I know i've gotten phrases from her...
- I just love my brother and his girlfriend Nicole...they are just wonderful. My brother is so talented and it continues to amaze me time and time again.
- My cousin Maddy took the picture above and I think it is so beautiful. It is in Port Aransas, TX- where we were for spring break with the fam. Good job Mads!

Sometimes I have this overwhelming feeling of joy and happiness when I get to fully experience the place in which I live. As a "new runner" (I feel I get to classify myself as this until it's been a full year since I started June '07)...I still find myself dealing with the mental battle between struggling through every step of a run vs feeling like I'm running on air and taking in every sight and smell. Today was a day when I found myself amazed at my surroundings. Pictured above is where I was running this morning with my great friend and running pal Staci...Palmer Lake in Monument, CO. As the weather warms up and the choices of running trails broadens...my enthusiasm to explore and challenge myself is a nice change of pace.
