You've got a friend
I can’t get Randy Newman out of my head. Over and over the last week I’ve been singing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from “Toy Story” in my head. I wake up singing it, I fall asleep humming it and it tiptoes into my thoughts throughout the day. I haven’t seen the movie in forever and I haven’t heard the song in probably years, yet, there it is, out of the recesses of my memories front and center today. Our brains are crazy, wonderful, unpredictable things, aren’t they? I think I first started singing it when I was thinking about friendship. “Toy Story” is one of my favorite movies about friendship (not to mention one of my favorites overall) and I’ve been thinking about friends a lot lately. I am very, very lucky. I have some pretty incredible friends. Sure, friends are wonderful to hang out with while having fun, but they’re even more important when things get rough. I had a bit of a rough patch recently and without even stumbling, my friends were there. No questions asked, no assumptions made, no second-guesses, no hesitation – they were there when I needed them and I am eternally grateful. I have friends who I’ve known since I was three months old (hi, Shannon), friends I met just a few months ago (waves to Aimee), even a few weird Internet friends I’ve never met in person (that’s totally a term of endearment and they know it) and I cherish every single one. I cherish even those who I’ve lost touch with or had a falling out with.View story photos
