The good friendships are the ones we hold dear to our hearts. Although, I have lost some of my closest friends over the years, I remember the good times we had. The sharing of both the good and the bad. The special memories.The love that will remain in my heart forever.
I have a friend who is my opposite. She drives a new sixty thousand dollar car. I drive a fifteen year old car that is barely holding together. She loves to shop and wears lots of flashy jewelry. I have to be dragged into the mall kicking and screaming. She loves steak. I haven't eaten red meat in sixteen years. Recently when I was talking about how I juice every morning she looked at me, rolled her eyes and said, "what's next, going braless and wearing Birkenstocks?". I immediately replied with, "that's a great idea!". Then we both burst out laughing. That is what friends are. We make each other laugh. We listen when no one else will. We may be different, but we respect those differences. We hold each other up.
Friends can come from any where and at any time. They may be in our own families or they may be someone we meet through a shared interest. They may be near by or far away. Many of my friends are right here. Sharing their lives with me through their blogs. Holding me up the way so many of my friends have done in the past.
Today I would love to hear about your best friends. One you have now, or maybe one from your past.
So grab a cup of coffee or tea, and let's chat.
