For the most part, life here is pretty great.
But it’s not perfect.
Nope. There are days when I just wanna cry. Days when I relationships go wrong. When I miss those who are closest to me. A lot. When I just wanna grab a coffee to go. Like a really big coffee. I experience difficult things. Or just don’t feel like arguing over the price, though it’s just part of society. When things just don’t seem to go right.
But then I remember that friends are just a phone call away. And we chat like old times. They remind us why we made the decisions we did. Why I’m here. The things I love about this place. Challenges that exist anywhere in the world. And why I came back.
And suddenly I get my smile back. The step in the Miss Mandy “strut”. And I go about laughing and joking as I normally do!
Thankful for those who truly “get” me!
