Friendship

Standard

Today there was no walk or jog. Instead the princess and I spent the day swimming and making memories.  Although I missed the thrill of lacing up my shoes, I immensely enjoyed our time together.  Later in the day as I sat on the shore looking at her playing with some new-found friends she had made at the springs.

I reflected over the past week and realized how important the friendships I have had been in this new chapter of my life’s story.  Maybe you have been the friend that has read my blog and left a positive comment.  Or the friend who has watched the Princess so I could go walk/jog.  Maybe you are the friend who has decided to go with me because it is safer.  Or maybe you are the friend who sends the encouraging text at the beginning and end of my jogs.

Whichever friend you are please know it means so much to me and I would never be able to continue this trip without you.

And for my friends I add this song to my playlist:

Thank You for Being a Friend

By Andrew Gold

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
your heart is true you’re a pal and a confidant

I’m not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won’t you stand up and take a bow

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see, the biggest gift would be from me
and the card attached would say,
Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

If it’s a car you lack
I’d surely buy you a Cadillac
Whatever you need, anytime of the day or night

I’m not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won’t you stand up and take a bow

And when we both get older
With walking canes and hair of gray
Have no fear, even though it’s hard to hear
I will stand real close and say,
Thank you for being a friend

(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Let me tell you bout a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend

And when we die and float away
Into the night, the Milky Way
You’ll hear me call, as we ascend
I’ll see you there, then once again
Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
Whoa, tell you about a friend
(Thank you right now, for being a friend)
Thank you for being a friend
(I wanna tell you right now, and tell you again)
Thank you for being a friend
(I wanna thank you, thank you, for being a friend)
Thank you for being a friend
