When Your Friends Know Exactly What You Need When You Need It

by Jody Narantic on October 15, 2012

The material I use for my blog is normally funny or fun things I’ve done or seen in person or online.  But I’ve had a busy serious couple of weeks and those fun things I’ve seen or done had turned into …

Well that is just stupid.

I think I’ve needed an attitude adjustment.

I haven’t been very likeable.

Which is why I ignored my blog last week.  And this past Saturday I slept the day away.  I’m not even sure why.  I thought I was starting to catch a cold but then I thought maybe I just needed rest.

So early Saturday evening my friend Thelma (Angie) sent this text …

Thelma: You feeling better.

Debbie Downer:  No.  Having an emotional issue at the moment.

Thelma:  I’m coming to get you.  You need to get out of the house.

Debbie Downer:  No. I’m fine.

Bra-less Thelma:  I’m coming to get you.  And I don’t have a bra on.  Or makeup.

Debbie Downer:  No. I’m fine.  And I haven’t had a bra on all day.  And I look like someone beat me up.

Bra-less Thelma: I’ll be there in 10 minutes.

And there was bra-less Thelma in the driveway.

Bra-less Debbie Down:  Where are we going?

Bra-less Thelma:  For a drive.

Sometimes your friends know exactly what you need when you need it … And this is where we ended up.

And that is exactly what I needed.

A visit with my childhood best friend that passed away 2 years ago.

And did you all know Saturday was no bra day?  Thelma and I were rockin’ the no bra on no bra day without even knowing it.

Have a wonderful day all!!!

And thank you Thelma!  xoxoxoxo

True friends are the greatest treasure we’ll ever have.

Even without a bra.

Please remember this experience next time. It’s easy for people to become depressed and push the people they love most away but if you just let your friends help you, life becomes so much easier!
