To Big and Lil'...
Please make yourself some good friends. Ones that you can count on for good and for bad. Ones that will stand up for you at your wedding or tell you you are making a mistake. Ones that will pick you up from jail and never tell a soul. Ones that will drive for miles and miles to see your brand new baby. Ones that you don't have to clean your house for.
Please make yourself some good friends. Ones that you can bitch to and ones that will tell you when enough is enough. Ones that will split a bottle with you or hold your hair back. Ones that will tuck you in at night. Ones that will give you underwear when you need it. Ones that love your kids and worry for them as much as you do.
Please make yourself some good friends. Ones that you'll give your last dollar to. Ones that get scared for you but hide it so well. Ones that you make you breathe better and think less. Ones that will call you over and over. Ones that miss you when you are away.
Look for them in your life. Because they are the people you never expected and then become the ones whom you can expect.
