After writing my last post, I feel compelled to write a complete list of all the friends who got me through an incredibly chaotic chapter of my life. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a nickname for anybody who has a positive impact on my life.
Thank you, to everyone. You know who you are.
The person who got me through the absolute worst time...
And the person who had the biggest part in guiding me back to myself...
Some of the most memorable things said to me by these people:
"You're an honorable man."
"Promise me that when I walk by your desk in the morning, you'll be sitting there."
"Whether you ask him to or not, the Lord will watch over you."
"Here's a card with what to do if you ever lose it and get pulled over drunk."
"You need to be careful. People attach to you, and sometimes end up getting hurt. Without you even knowing it."
"At the lowest point in my life, I asked God for help. That night, my house was broken into. And then my life got better." (I did a similar thing; and that night my car was broken into. And then things got better.)
And probably the most important of all...
"Every person you date, every decision you make, every thing you do... needs to be based on one thing. What's best for your kids."
I think I'm actually going to be okay. It's a good feeling to finally have. :)
