Back in Jackson this week. Not much time for posting. Will post when I can. Customer visit. At least I'm home for the week.

Before the summer re-run I want to say this -

Friends - are special people. Our friends can be as diverse and infinite as the adjectives we choose, Close friend, Best friend, Childhood friend, Intimate friend, Trusted friend, Beloved friend. Our friends, in a very real sense, reflect the choices we make in life.

I know that I have made bad choices in friends over the years and then I have made good choices. The bad choices I, in a way, can't regret because if I had not made those choices then I would have never know what a true and trusted friend is.

In our short lived life, we very seldom have "true" friends. The ones that we do have we should cherish with every waking moment.

Now for the summer time re-run and I'm going back in my archives and pulling a few of them out. Hope you enjoy.


Last night as I was flipping through the channels to see what was on television, I came across a movie that I had not seen in years. A movie that shows the true meaning of friendship. That no matter what happens in your life, the trials and tribulations that friends go through, that we are always there for each other.

The movie that I watched and cried to was "Beaches".

As I sat and watched the movie, I thought of all my friends here in the blogshpere and in the SP and those that I have here at home. I thought that if I were in Hillary Whitney's shoes who would stand by me? Who would be C. C. Bloom? If one of my friends were in Hillary's shoes, would I be C. C. Bloom? Would I be able to just drop my life to be with a friend who was dying or who needed me for any other reason?

As these questions ran through my mind, I can think of so many that I knew would be there if I were Hillary. I know that all I would have to do is make one phone call and they would be there. You know who you are.

Those same friends that I could call know that if they truly needed me that all they would have to do was call and I would be there for them.

Below is a song from the movie that I have always loved. I cry every time I hear it. I guess that yes, I am a softie... but I can't help it.

(Bette Midler)

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way,
you always walked a step behind.
So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name -- for so long,
a beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and ev'rything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it,
I would be nothing with out you.
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and ev'rything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly away, you let me fly so high.
Oh, fly, fly, so high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
thank God for you,
the wind beneath my wings.
Thank God for each and every one of you... I love you all....

Proudly Brought to You by Dixie 8:16 AM

Great song, great Post. Good job, Dixie! :)
Hope you have a great MM!

Some very thought-provoking questions about friendship - maybe some things that people never take the time to think about as most people never like to think about dying - never mind about who might be there with them.

Thank you for a great post!
