Prayers For Our Friends

Spent the evening last night with my friends, fixed them some food and ran it up, so they didn't have to worry about that part at least. A couple of the guys from work had things delivered, so there is enough for them, and whomever happens to stop by. It gives me hope that people still pitch in during bad times, I knew it with my group, but Rick & Kara's neighbors sent things, as well as others. My group shines during these times, everyone will participate, everyone will be there, we have been very lucky to have all been together, I just wish we could do more. I've been talking with the boy all day, and I'm going to watch a movie with the girl tonight, feeling very lucky for all I have.

It is times like this when we need prayers and friends. I believe you have both.

I have to agree with you on this one. I know everyone thinks their group of friends is the tightest or closest.
But I tell you what I would put our group up against any group and they would rise to the top and shine.
Work groups help each other but often it is a popularity contest or once a person leaves the job or unit they seem to fade away. Not this group!! There are people that have been retired for almost 20 years that I can still count on. Working in law-enforcement you literally have their lives in your hands and they have yours in theirs. Like Pete Rose once said I'd walk through fire in a gasoline suit to help anyone in this group of friends. And I know they are there just as strong for me & my family.
They are the BEST and it seems they get better when times get rough.

Friends are sometimes more caring than family. Sad but true. There is an old saying that goes, "Make new friends , keep the old. One is silver the other is gold." Amen

Slammer - What a group of characters it is too. One I am so proud to be a part of, and still am a part of. I've been up, cried with them, laughed with them, will continue to take my turn, and do my best to get the through this, they would be here for me, I know that because they were.

Froggy - This group of men and women are closer than family, with benefits! But you is always my Momma!

I know who I am but seriously you should learn your kids names, they can't go through life as the boy and the girl. Jackie called today but we weren't home. We are going to call Jake , you know the boy. Love, Mom
