The Importance of Good Friends

I am blessed.  I have some of the best friends a person can have.  I have the kind of friends that you can let loose and be yourself around.  I have friends that I can be stupid silly around - and I don't even have to have been imbibing a bit to do it.  They love me for who I am ( at least they say they do) and they aren't afraid to get stupid silly along with me.

I am also fortunate enough to have a wide variety of friends who share my interests.  And sometimes those friends can cross into other groups of friends and that's always fun - I like it when I can introduce new groups and they all get along.  But sometimes they don't mesh and that's ok too.

And it always amazes me how many friends the internet has brought my way.  I have people whom I consider *good* friends, who I have never met in person, but I would not hesitate to stay at their house if invited.  The only reason I haven't met them in person is I haven't made it to their geographic area - or them to mine.

As one of my agility friends commented to me one day, when we were at an out of town show - "
You seem to have a friend in every city".  It's true.  I think I know someone in every area that I travel to.  It's nice.  If I can, I try to meet up with them when I get to their area.  Sometimes they come to the show and visit, or sometimes we meet up for dinner, it just depends on time and scheduling.
