The best of what's around

The funny thing about life is that some weeks you find out your inside parts are misbehaving and you get a flat tire, but you also run through trails of mud and snow and calf-deep ice water and you run after bunnies on the roads before dawn and you survive your second pilates class and you get to spend time with some of your most favorite people (and your most favorite puppy) and you laugh so hard your face hurts. And you realize, time and again, that it matters not what happens, but who you're with when it does. Life, even in its darkest moments, is infinitely, unimaginably, overwhelmingly beautiful. But it's even more so when you have great company. I am exceedingly thankful for every kind word, laugh, hug, shoulder to cry on and shared ice cream of my 32 years on your planet. If you're reading this, then I assume we're friends, so you should know I think you're the best and I love you forever. If we're not friends, we should be. Let's get on that.

Lyric of the moment: "See you and me have a better time than most can dream, have it better than the best. So we can pull on through whatever tears at us, whatever holds us down. And if nothing can be done, we'll make the best of what's around. Turns out not where but who you're with that really matters..."
