I didn't realize what gate I was opening when I wrote the entry on July 17 about Lessons Learned: True Friendships. I have received emails and calls about people apologizing for not being a good friend. Oh my!!! Quick note: if I haven't spoken to you in awhile that doesn't mean I don't think you are being a bad friend! I know there are people I can count on regardless of when I last spoke to them. There are people I will drop things for and listen if they called me after not seeing each other for awhile.
I certainly don't think that my family is more important than anyone else's (except to us!) ... and I certainly don't think that the idea of true friendships relies soley on favors or constant contact. I had friends say to me they understand where I was coming from when I wrote this entry because they too were disapointed by a friend or family member.
I appreciate all that people have helped us out with regarding Brady... big AND small. I do value all of our family and friends and know how lucky we are to be blessed with so many caring individuals. Thank you!
