Who is He Who Keeps Me Sane?
I have a friend I’ve known most of my life, but just recently in the past nine months became closer than before. He has become the very best friend a person could ever ask for. Someone who makes sacrifices for us, who also have our backs no matter what, and who we have the most fun and chemistry with make the best of friends..
Having someone sacrifice their time means they are putting effort and investing into their friendship. They seem to care enough about us to put us first. I love that about my best friend. No matter what, he still seems to always have time for me and I know without a doubt I can always depend on him.
For instance, looking at his body tells the story of many hardworking days spent outdoors. His deeply developed shoulders, and strong back, place him as a man born and bred to labor. He wakes early before the sun rises to start his twelve hour days. Those already long days usually turn into sixteen hours, due to the second job he attends strictly out of the passion and love he has for soaring high above the clouds. Just as his body starts to get used to the little sleep he needs to function, it is time to switch shifts. Even with all the chaotic time crunches in his life, he still manages to find time for me. If I need help, he finds a way to scrape up just enough minutes or hours in his crowded dense schedule. He is one of the most selfless hard working men I have come to know. He is clever by design, no task, mechanical or intellectual delays him for long. He has the power to adapt and overcome. I've relied on him more times than I can count. When I can't remedy a situation alone, I am comforted knowing I have his ever ready assistance. He has taken time out of his life to mow my lawn or fix my broken pipes. He helps me move heavy and awkward objects in my house. He has even been known to come kill my spiders. Anything I ask of him, I know he will always be there for me. To me he is as dependable as the sun...
