Forever….That’s how long a friendship lasts, even if it ends. We always have that feeling, that knowing, the absolute truth about our friends that stays in our hearts forever. You can always retrieve it whenever you need it.
It is a place where we are safe. A true friendship is non-perishable, its organic, its eternal. Imagine that when you die, you can still take a part of your friend with you. A friend loves forever. I believe Heaven must be filled with BFF’s! And God said, “This is good.”
A friend listens to you even when they have heard the story before. A friend will even smile and ask questions, all the while, knowing the answer.
A friend will ask you how you are and really want to know the truth. ‘Just fine’ or ‘Ok’ will rarely do, and especially concerning matters of the heart.
A friend will go with you to choose your second or even third wedding dress because a true friend is always your biggest cheerleader.
When you just have to tell someone…when no one else will understand….when blue skies are grey and getting cloudier…when no one would believe it…you must tell your friend.
That’s what friends do.
Listen. Talk. Share. Smile. Hug. Write. Drive. Pray. Laugh. Love. Enjoy. Like. Give. Take. Save. Help.
