Do you know someone who is sincere, honest, loyal, truthful, trustworthy and dependable? If you do have a good friend, hang on to them. A good friend knows when to listen, when to correct, when to encourage, when to protect and when to slap you (so to speak). Someone that knows how you feel and knows when they need to be right there . . . but also knows when to step back. Someone who loves you for you and does not judge you for the times when you’re not living up to even your own standards. When thinking of my dearest friend I can’t help but to think of this quote by Sharita Gadison - “Some friends come and go like a season. Others are arranged in our lives for good reason.”
After attending my 40th class reunion and via Face Book I have come in contact with friends I have not connected with in years. Friends are like shoes - both my friends and my perfect pair of boots can bring me intense joy. Just as my favorite pair of flip-flops aren’t perfect for every occasion, neither is every friend I have. I think it’s necessary to have a variety of friends - from comfy to professional. I really feel blessed to know so many people who I can call friends who are encouraging, loving, caring and honest and have a sense of humor.
I've made so many cute fall cards . . . now I just need to get them in the mail to family instead of hoarding them lol!
