I am thankful for two of my dearest favourite people who kidnapped me today.
This wasn't my first abduction either. See, there are days when I get caught up in a project and forget to eat. Two of my favourite people have made a habit of surprising me with a visit that often includes going for lunch (or supper) and it is joyful. There are other times I spend the whole day alone and isolated (for a varitiey of reasons). My friends show up when I seem to need it the most!
Their friendship is very very dear to me. They make me smile and help clear my head. They put up with me when I'm overwhelmed and monosyllabic. They are better than cheerleaders and don't let me dwell on failures, shortcomings, or my own negative self doubts and false perceptions. I am so glad I met them and I cherish every adventure we have...and I want to hug them both right now. Yep...I'm kinda tearing up - because they are awesome.
Being kidnapped today, no matter how off I seemed (and was) was exactly what I needed. It was joy and joyfulness and for that I am thankful for the Jenn and Patrick!
