I Think I Lost It...

"I think I lost it. Let me know if you come across it.
Let me know if I let it fall along a back road somewhere.
Money can't replace it, no memory can erase it.
And I know I'm never gonna find another one to compare."

That's from Lucinda Williams, the 8th cut on her 1998 CD
"Car Wheels on a Gravel Road." I highly recommend it. You
can take a listen to some samples from it here. Not a bad
song in the bunch, if you like good ol' country raw vocals
without the pop sound.

Anyhoo...this is not a commercial for Lucinda Williams. It is a
post for an old friend of mine who is having a tough time with a
friendship gone awry. Imagine a time you have had your feelings
hurt when someone you trusted betrayed you. C'mon...I know
it has happened to every one of us at some point. My buddy
sent me an email about friendship. I am passing it along here,
because more people will see it here than if I email it.


A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty,
She asked him if he would want to be with her forever...
and he said no.
She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry,
and once again he replied with a no.
She had heard enough. As she walked away, tears streaming down
her face, the boy grabbed her arm and said...
You're not pretty, you're beautiful.
I don't want to be with you forever, I NEED to be with you forever.
And I wouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die...

I like you because of who you are to me...A true friend.
And if I don't get this back I'll take the hint.
Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they like you.
Something good will happen to you at 1:00-4:00 PM tomorrow.
It could be anywhere -- AOL, Yahoo, outside of school, anywhere.
Get ready for the biggest shock of your life.
Please send to 15 people in 15 minutes.
"A good friend will come bail you out of jail....
But a true friend will be sitting next to you saying ...
WE screwed up, but we had fun! "
Proud to be your Friend!
Make sure you read all the way down to the last sentence, and
don't skip ahead.
I've learned...that life is like a roll of toilet paper.
The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
I've learned...that we should be glad God doesn't give us
everything we ask for.
I've learned...that money doesn't buy class.
I've learned....that it's those small daily happenings that make life
so spectacular.
I've learned...that under everyone's hard shell is someone who
wants to be appreciated and loved.
I've learned....that the Lord didn't do it all in one day.
What makes me think I can?
I've learned...that to ignore the facts does not change the facts.
I've learned...that the less time I have to work, the more things I
get done.

To all of you...make sure you read all the way down to the last
It's National Friendship Week.
Show your friends how much you care.
Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND, even if it means
sending it back to the person who sent it to you.
If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of

Please send some positive energy the way of my friend Bean in the
Sunflower State. And while you're at it, direct some of it toward
my blogfriend Kim in the Pelican State. Hey! I don't ask y'all for
much, now do I? And see here, I've even given you a geography
lesson, because you can google to find out what states these are.
