sometimes you just want to hear the words

I've been scarce because we are in the process of remodeling the bathroom, not because we want to, but because it was either that or have the tub completely crack in half.

Anyhoo, I'm feeling petty, so you get to listen to it.

I am the consummate friend.  I don't let many people in my life, but when I do, you are there forever.  I will love you, support you, be there for you, be an alibi for you, be a shoulder, a checkbook, a listener, a truth teller, you name it.  I give gifts on a whim because I happen to see something that makes me think of you.  I am an empath, so when I feel...know...that you are having a horrible day, I will try to make it better.  I call you to make sure you are okay.  I accept your phone calls at all hours because I know you need a friendly voice.  I'll drop everything just to sit by your side as you sit there, silently, afraid to be alone but not wanting to talk.  I hold your deepest, darkest secrets, and tell you it will all be okay in the end.  I do this because I love you.

I don't expect fireworks.

I don't expect gifts.

I don't except you to run down the street singing my praises.

But...

once in a while...

I'd like to hear...

thank you.

Two little words.

I know that now that you have everything in order that you don't need me anymore.  But just say, "Thank you" then you can forget about me until next time.

I'll still be here.

Even if you don't.

Peace, Love and (is it really that hard?) Zombies \IiiI

It's funny how two little words can can make things better. I hope those people or person finally give you your well deserved thanks :)

Sometimes I wonder if those two words still even exist in the English language because so few people know how to use them. Hopefully you get your thank yous. You certainly deserve them.
