    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
