Off Blog Friend Award

Will also be known as the Andrew Gold Thank You for Being a Friend award.

I just made this award up and if anybody wants to follow my example, go right ahead. If you want to make a cute image to go along with it, that would be great.

Right now I'm more grateful than artsy craftsy.

The winner of my off blog friend award is one of my best friends and most loyal readers. She doesn't have a blog of her own, but comments on mine regularly. Sometimes she will go and look at other's blogs as well. Her name is Brenda, and she lives in Rittman. I have made reference to her many times here, mainly in her role as part of the World's Greatest Band Boosters, or WGBB.

The reason I give her this award now is because she took time out of her busy day yesterday to help lift my spirits. I had just gotten through a very rough weekend and was really feeling sorry for myself. I sent her an email where I really opened up and was worried after I hit the send button that I was risking losing one of my best friends.

Brenda then sent me a very well thought out reply. That was a big help in lifting out of the funk I was in.

I once heard a preacher say during a sermon that a friend is someone who know all about you and loves you regardless. I can say Brenda is that type of person.

Thank you Brenda!

As I read each and every comment in succession, I am reminded of all the wonderful friendships I have so missed over the past several weeks. Cliff, you need to know that you are thought of daily even when I am amiss.
BRAVO Brenda for not missing a chance to be a dear friend!

Much love to you all tonight!

The best thing to do when you are in a funk is to get out of yourself.. write it down, talk about it... by doing this you it often dissipates.
Hope you are feeling better.
Brenda is a good friend, but friends will always listen.
