Make Friends for Life. Work Hard for Your Friendships and One Day, They will work hard for You.

I have this friend who lives in Vancouver (West Coast of Canada and our family lives on the East Coast).  Him and I have know each other for most of our lives.

One time, he proceeds to give me a lecture.  I do not like to be lectured if there is no exam at the end.  He told me to throw out the weight scale.  J is a funny dude.  He said, his kids must not be watching their weight and I would be a bad mother to his kids if I weighed myself daily and cut down on food.  Then he went nuts and told me that all the young ladies you see on Glee are 25-35yrs old.  That is usually when a woman's body takes real shape.  Our girls are teens (stop the grin, they are not his kids but he will take them anytime).

The next day, the weighing scale was gone and I was eating freely.  I have never had problems with weight except to gain it.  Mostly because I live on fruits.  Next thing, he says I must eat meat.  Damn, he was not the first person to say I must eat meat.  Now, we have 2 healthy young ladies and no weighing of any kind.  I also gained a lot of weight by infusing meat into the diet.  Between my best friend and my husband, I had to learn to eat more than fruits. Sometimes we all need key people to watch out for us and tell it to us no matter how bitter it sounds.  Robert and J know about each other.

Friends are precious.  Do not take your friends for granted because they were planted in your life for a reason.  Robert has to take care of me because that is the promise you make when you marry someone.  J knows how defiant I can be sometimes and he put me on the spot to listen.

For the two best men in my life.  My husband and my best friend.  I thank you.  The girls are doing wonderful but taller than me  though.
