succumbing to peer pressure

Thursday, January 20, 2005

It's taken a while, but I've finally found friends with whom I can be totally comfortable. I can be dumb and drunk and they'll humor me and I don't have to agonize over what they'll think in the morning, because they know me and they don't judge me and they'll just let it go. Once again I have been blessed with people who embody the following quote:

"Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are - chaff and grain together - certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away..." --- Dinah Mulock

I am so lucky.
