Sticking With You

I actually have had Addison Road's "Hope Now" stuck in my head and had fully planned on doing it for today's song until I checked my list and saw that I had already done it.  Then this song came on the radio this morning and I was so filled with gratitude for the people in my life who stick with me that I decided this is today's song!  So Addison Road gets another turn on the experiment which is starting to wind down.  Today is 343!
I am a firm believer in friendship and especially in the friendships that go the distances.  And I'm not talking about the distances, necessarily, that you can measure by miles.  I'm talking about those distances that get created by life circumstances, by hurts/wounds, by the cloudy days.  I have a handful of people in my life who have stuck with me, pushing and pulling on my walls and letting me throw my fits and being there no matter what.  I'm SO grateful for this handful of people.  Some have been around for years and some are "new" in my life but I've recently put all of them through the wringer with the depression I went through!  And now that I'm on the other side I can look around and see who is left who really stuck with me.  And I'm so grateful for who I see.  I'm also grateful that these same friends allow ME to stick around them and allow me to push and pull on their walls.  That's friendship; the give and take, the thick and thin, the sunny and cloudy.  
So.  I'm willing to bet that you know who you are...THANK YOU!  :)
