You act as a sounding board. You offer encouragement. You help me address my fears. You help me deal with my issues and those of my cat family. When I get overwhelmed, depressed, discouraged, you help me see the truth of the situation. You listen. You give me techniques to deal with things. You’ve kept me going and kept me “sane” through lots of changes and ups and downs. You’re there for me when I have crises. You’ve been a great friend. So many, many thanks for all of that!
