What counts and what doesn't.

If it weren't for some of my wonderful students.
If it wasn't for my baby and his little hands tugging at my earlobes.
If it weren't for my husband's efforts to make me laugh.
If it weren't for my best friends efforts to make me laugh even harder.
If it wasn't for our cleaner who comes once a week and spends more time singing to my baby in Romanian than actually cleaning
If it weren't for all of these things.

I don't really think I could manage. No way.
Just goes to show. Not being a people person doesn't mean I don't need anyone. Everybody does. The difference between the few in the picture and the majority that aren't? The few know you better than the rest. Sometimes even more than you'd like. They'll be there for the long haul.
Live well.
Have fun.
Just don't lean on people who can't be there for you after the party's over. How do you figure that out? The ones who care are usually the ones helping you clear up long after everybody else have upped and left. That's when you know. That's when you also know, particularly in the case when nobody stays behind, which can happen,that you are your own closest ally too.
Which is why I shouldn't forget this very important point.
If it weren't for me, just plain old me, keeping pretty much true to myself, I really wouldn't be as happy as I am today.

We all have our own unique ways of expressing ourselves. I have mine and you have yours. I'm sure there are as many people out there reading my blog who 'get it' as there are those who don't. Clearly, you are in the latter category.
I just wish, whoever you are, you could have showed a little more kindness in your comment. I'm not telling you what to do. That's your call. It's a simple suggestion;the next time you want to comment anonymously, to me or to anybody elses blog, try a less abrasive approach.

hi khairun,
that is so truth. sometimes we need to be alone but sometimes we need people to be with us no matter what. specially to be with us because they like to be with us.I also have a little boy that makes me so happy and whenever I'm sad or unhappy he and my wife are my "salvation army".
keep posting your nice ideas and don't listen to stupid comments that have no meaning and cleary writen by people who have nothing to say or do. don't loose your time responding to that. spend your time posting more of your ideas.
all the best
