I have to admit, I have been seriously lacking in this department. Sometimes life just happens to us. Sometimes it's stress, work, bills, etc. For me it has been the whole scene of the holidays, being wrapped up in my family (which isn't necessarily a bad thing!), and trying to stay physically fit and healthy during this pregnancy. The thing that I have been struggling with is to just finding the right balance. I think you can all agree with me in that friends are so important. These are the people that counsel you, make you laugh when you want to cry, and they are still there for you when you haven't been there for them. Some of my closest friends, I haven't seen in a month (!), which is definetely unacceptable! But that's why these people are your friends in the first place. They have neverending grace for you (for me, that's for sure), even when you've been absent. For this, I am so thankful, because that's when I need it the most.
Here's to being a better friend to you, and finding that right "balance." Sometimes life gets to me, and sometimes I am just plain old tired. Just know that I still love you the same, and you are still a valuable part of my life.
