Friends who know me and miss me, and send me sweet msgs saying so. Friends who clap their hands and say "Yaaaay!" when I say I can come over and go swimming. Friends who help me use up the last of this month's cell minutes. Friends who remind me that *everyone* turns into a monster with little sleep and no food. Friends who remind me that a day of spa-time ought to be a necessity, and encourage me to go. Friends who understand how I could have easily misinterpreted things and seen them in a bad light. Friends who call and check up on me, reminding me that they are there for me. Friends who will write me, even though they are hurting too, and let me know that lines of communication are not completely down. Friends who will take ten minutes and tell me the story of the baby cardinal and the large worm, just to make me laugh. Friend who call me back to make sure our Earthquake Preparedness Drill went okay (and that I didn't forget & go to sleep under my desk).
Friends are a WONDERFUL part of my life.

Damn.... *sits humbled at the feet of Rob Breszny*
Many thanks to my friend aibas, for posting this, and making me *think* about things, yet again.
From Rob Breszny's Aquarius:
When you obsess on your adversaries, you risk becoming like them. The more you shape your life through your responses to things you don't like, you invite them to define your destiny. You'll have to be on guard against falling prey to this mistake in the coming weeks, Aquarius. While I don't suggest that you totally ignore the forces that oppose you, neither do I recommend that you regularly wake up in the middle of the night and spend hours plotting your next ten moves against them. Confine your scheming to a circumscribed period--say every Saturday between 11:30 a.m. and noon--and devote the rest of your time to creating what you love.
Someday I *will* get my exersize in ways other than jumping to conclusions and going off half-cocked. Really, I *will*.... I'm *gonna* master this one if it's the last thing I do.
