Thankful Thursday: My People – The guys

I am thankful for lifelong friends: My protectors, heroes, and teddy bears.

These guys are my forever friends, since before that was a term.  Yes, they’re guys and you would think it strange, but not with these guys.  These guys would all protect me from harm if they were there and capable.

I know they don’t want to hear that I think they are teddy bears… but they are.  They don’t look all soft on the inside. They don’t talk soft on the outside.  Get them talking about days gone by and they become cuddly balls of fluff.

I was recently lucky enough to go on a trip home, to Chicago.  It was a whirlwind of a time.  I saw these three guys that I grew up with, all in one night. The party didn’t last nearly as long as I wanted (forever), but it was a party just for us. For us to reconnect, to laugh, to cry, to crack corny jokes no one else would understand.  Did I mention it was perfect?

Ahhh, it was perfect.  Thank you guys for being my protectors, heroes, and teddy bears.
