2010 World Cup Soccer Final and the Big Event in my Heart

Here on the edge of Africa, on July 10 2010, the eve of the 2010 World Cup Soccer Final, millions are holding their breath in expectation.  Outside,  it’s white and grey, wintry cold and raining.  The street separating me from the ocean is wet; cars adorned with flags of every description swoosh by.  Tomorrow, tomorrow.

But for me today is much more important, and inside my heart it’s summer, the sun is shining, and I have a much bigger event happening.  It’s called friendship.

This blog is dedicated to friends who just accept you for who you are.  They don’t care if you’re a fruit-loop or a downright raving maniac.  They don’t see your vulnerability and your spectacular failures as something shameful.  They sure don’t see it the way you see it!  You don’t have to hide anything from them.  They don’t hide their vulnerability from you.

You don’t have to run any more when you have friends like this.  Let me tell you something, I’m one very, very lucky woman.
