Crazy's About to Get a Little Crazier



Oh yes it is my friends. I'm going to tell you why.
Ashley's coming home. My childhood friend. She moved about 12 years ago to South Carolina. She went with a boyfriend, broke up with him, got married, got divorced, worked 150 jobs, rescued animals, and made friends. Now, after all that time she's coming home. She just passed South of the Border.

There's nothing like old friends. I really believe people come in and out of your life for a reason. Every single one of them. Sometimes it's really hard to understand that reason at the time. You gotta think long and hard to "get it." Many, you have to let in to learn that lesson and then when it's time, you need to let them drift out again. It can be hard and sad and confusing. So that's why, when you have people that you have known forever and a day. When you have had your rough times with them and your great times and your distant times and your close times and they are still there after years and years, to me, there is comfort in that. Comfort and so much happiness.

I have run the gamut with Ashley and I'm going to tell you something, she's crazier than me. WAY crazier. She won't even care that I wrote that. That is one of the many beautiful things about her. She owns who she is. Very real. Crazy, but real.
