    Don't Have Many

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    There is a little light

    that flickers in all of our hearts. Some fan it gently with whispers of hope, while others try to blow out its flame. And in the distinction between those two winds, lies the secret to knowing your true friends. Because while both may be stirring the air around the same spark...
