Comments: You can pick your friends...

Oh my, lol! For once I am glad to live in the sticks where I am considered the sleek city girl to try and emulate. Little do they know. LOL! I feel your pain.

The word "friends" is what is important here. Regardless how you feel about yourself or how you think others see you, you offer something to the friendship. After all, it is not on the superficial level that we bond as humans, it is what is inside us, that which we cannot change, that binds us together as friends. Hopefully it is full of positive and good, but I know it cannot be changed regardless what it is. While your friends sound very committed to their ideals and values, which is a quality we could all learn from, you have a way of communicating life's events that are not seen by the average person. (By the way, not my first time visiting the site. I was very impressed about the story of your son and the older girl, Caroline.) You have a very unique perspective on life and the rare ability to put the small nuances into words that bring ordinary happenings into great detail. I am sure your friends appreciate that greatly. Thanks and keep it up!
