I Value True Friends Very Much

    Friend Versus Best Friend

    A friend has never seen you cry. Your best friend has shoulders soggy from your tears. A friend doesn't know your parents' first names. Your best friend has their phone numbers in her address book. A friend brings a bottle of wine to your party. Your best friend comes early to...

    I Will Paint A Rainbow Over Your Bridge.

    I value casual friends and true friends the same way. I am a good listener. I can give critic as well as inspirations. I can be a helping hand when you need one. I will stand commited to your advocacies as long as it fits my moral standards. And these and more are the things I...

    I Have Something To Say.

    I want you all to know. You can never have too many best friends. It is better to have a true friend than an aquaintance. It has taken me many friendships to figure out others around me. There were many times when I would be friends with someone to discover that they weren't...

    True Friendship

    With you, it's all about voiceless communication- always knowing exactly what to say, but never actually having to say it. When no one seems to be listening, you hear. When I hurt but don't show it, you know. When I turn away to hide my tears, you see. When I feel like I can't...

    My Theory On Friends

    When I was a young girl, my mother told me that I would be able to count all my friends on one hand and still have fingers left over...I didn't really digest and understand that concept until I was much older. I have family that I am not the least bit close to and then I have my...

    You Know It!

    True friends at hard to come by, at least for me. If I can find a true friend or two, I'd treasure the friendship we have. I'd like to have a true friend, I really do.

    Don't Have Many

    True friendship withstands all hardships and petty disagreements life throws at you. I have several close friends, but only very few I consider a true friend - one that will never loose touch, or leave - even if they find out something about me they disagree with. Out...

    Bonds Of Friendship

    When days are filled with sunshine How close we hold a friend; it's good to share the laughter, the dreams that have no end. And it is fun exchanging some episode of fun and finding much in common, in all that you have done. But when the days are shadowed, Perhaps with pain or...

    I can't understand why people feel

    that you always have to be the one contacting them in order to keep their friendship. Isn't it a two way street? These were the last people I thought that would totally drop off the face of the earth and do this. Deeply hurt and saddened.
