This photo has been languishing in my drafts post folder for several years now and today it spoke to me to let it come out and speak. Everyone needs at least one friend that they can talk to. It can be a spouse or significant other, a friend you’ve had since childhood, a new friend and sometimes it can even be a relative.
Some believe that in today’s modern world we have become so separated from the rest of the world that the only “friends” we have are those strictly in the cyber world and while that may be true to some extent is it really a bad thing?
I’ve made friends via social media that I feel are really my friends. And by that I mean we have progressed past the likes and small comments on our feeds to emailing, texting, speaking on the phone and in some instances actually meeting face to face. So what can we say about friends and friendship?
A good friend helps you hide a body… a great friend brings a shovel and doesn’t ask any questions.
A good friend knows all your best stories. A best friend has lived them with you.
Friends are the bacon bits in the salad bowl of life.
If you have one true friend then you are truly blessed.
Best friends motto: Always remember that if you fall I will pick you up… after I finish laughing!
