So, as part of the continuing series on what I’m thankful for, here’s…
Day Three: Friends
I’ve always been the type of guy to have a fairly small circle of friends. I’m fairly introverted and on most days have to be persuaded to socialize. I could easily become a hermit if left to my own devices. So the few friends that I keep close to me are people that are to be treasured.
Not many people “get” my sense of humor–my friends usually do (though not always–I can be pretty esoteric, living in my own head so much). We play games together, enjoy each other’s company, and are there for each other when we need it.
So even if I am internally inclined to a monastic existence, I’m thankful for my friends keeping me grounded in the real world around me and dragging me out of the compound from time to time to enjoy life a bit more.
