Jealousy or is it Admiration?

Ok, so the other night, before falling asleep, I started thinking about things to write on my blog. You see, I'm not a "natural" blogger; I read my friends blogs and think "I can do that" but I'm not so confident. Everyone else I know is more eloquent and witty and I feel like my stuff is just, well, plain.

So, while thinking of things, I realized I'm insainly jealous of some of my friends. I don't think of myself as a jealous person, there is no real point in it really and maybe it's more that I admire the skills and talents of my friends. Take Jessie - she is an amazing photographer and her blog makes me laugh out loud and wish I lived closer so we could hang out. My bestest friend, Darah, is a great writer, mother, daughter and crafter (how she finds the time, I don't know!) Katie does magic with my hair and makes me feel good about myself, even when she's having a bad day. Even when stressed and at the end of her rope, she is hopeful and obedient. Danika is a wonderful mother who is full of energy and life and I sooooo wish I could look as good as she does - that would involve taking up running and I don't see that in my near future unless she becomes my personal trainer!!!

So, instead of being jealous, I decided to share what I admire about women in my life. I plan to do this on occasion because it makes me feel good to see how talented the people around me are!

Ok and now I'm tearing up into my coffee. Thank you, dear friend. I admire you so much. You're such a strong woman and mother and friend. Your unfailing honesty is always tempered by your equally unfailing compassion. We're so lucky to know you.

No one else I know would send me a black card! And know that I'd love it!

And I'm downright jealous of your wardrobe-- although I know at least part of that is Duffy's fault :)
love you!
