One of the great things in life is having friends. And by friends I mean real friends. Not those who pretend to care about you, and use your friendship to get what they want and then forget about you; as if you have never existed!
True friends are priceless gems. They are so precious. Once you find them, you must hold on to them and treasure them forever. And, they are the family you have chosen for yourself.
I have a friend who has been part of my family for more than 20 years now. She is a true gem. She cares for me, understands me, cries with me, and also dances with me. We have so many similarities. We both are crazy. Whenever we get excited, we start talking so loudly as if we own the place. And, we both love talking a lot. But, besides that, our differences complete our friendship.
We don’t talk and go out very often, like before –and by before I mean before getting married and having kids. Sometimes, months pass by and we don’t talk. And when we do, we don’t complain about not calling each other, because we both understand that we have busy lives. And, our time doesn’t belong to us only. We just catch up from the last time we met and plan for the next.
I’m so grateful to God that I have her, my best friend. We always support and motivate each other whenever needed. Even though we don’t talk as much as before, deep down we know we are always there for each other despite the lack of time and the life burdens.
Having a friend like that, is really a bless. If you have true friends, then hold on to them because such friends are very rare to find.
Have a blessed Friday, and appreciate your true friend.
