Superfriends

I've always been a Superman guy, but Hawkman's in this
picture so that's who I'm identifying with today.
When it's you against the world, you need friends who will tell you what you need to hear whether you want to hear it or not. These friends will then stand with you when you need them and in turn you have to stand with them. I'm very fortunate that I have some excellent friends who will buy me a drink or hang out with me and be supportive when I need them. You know who you are and I'm saying that I'm grateful for each and every one of you.

Some of them follow me on Twitter (along with a thousand others) and some of them are Facebook friends (nearly three hundred there) and some are in both places. It's in the real world that it counts, though. Friends who aren't in the same city as me who message through FB or Twitter are doing what they can and that's all I can ask for though I don't feel like I should ask for anything.

I was taught that I need to stand on my own two feet, be my own man and do things for myself.  That I have friends who buy me a cup of coffee or listen to me ramble on about my problems or distract me are the kinds of friends who I cherish the most. I'll tip my hat to them all and when they need me for something, I'll be there for them. 

So far the best advice I've gotten is to just breathe. I'm repeating myself and rambling a little here so give me a second.

Whew.

Yeah, that's better. It's been hard to concentrate on writing for a while, but I think I'm going to be okay enough to finish off a couple of things and do some stuff I've been meaning to. So if you, dear readers, stick with me, I hope I'll have some news to report that'll be worthy of your attention.

After all, we're all friends here, right?
