I met a friend here at Tmswiki close to a year ago now. He was very supportive of my goals as I was his. He helped me to learn to laugh and smile again as I taught him the finer points of the tms phenomena. Everyday he had a way of bringing out the best in me and making me push harder and go further in my goals than I ever thought possible. I coached him on his rough days and he coached me on my rough days. We sort of healed together as I know we have journeyed together for a while now. I was already on top of the healing journey as I knew it till he would send me these jokes that made me laugh out loud and I knew what Norman Cousins meant then about how laughter pulled him and thousands of others out of some tight spots with their health I remember when I was down he would give me a word of encouragement as a brother or father or even a close friend would do. He's never given up on being that friend till this day he still sends me the great old classic movies of old so I can enjoy and laugh and keep a spirit of gratitude. And most important of all, he's still the same friend I learned to know close to a year ago and he's not changed a bit. That's real , real friends are real heroes. Thanks for being that real friend Walt Olesky, Your the Best PS- If anyone has a friend that you would like to show some gratitude too lets do it here and make a thread of friendship that last forever.
