Thankful for my friends!

   Today I talked a long time to one of my dear friends. We haven't talked in a while,  so it was especially nice to be able to just catch up on what is going on in each other's lives. I was struggling with something and shared my concerns with her. I knew that she loved me, and would understand how I felt... and even if she didn't, I knew she cared enough to listen. I was grateful for her wisdom and concern.
   Some of her advice was new, but much of it was what I knew already, but I just needed to be reminded of it. After quite some time on the phone ( you noticed I didn't tell you how long ), we said our good-byes. She said "well this was like pajama party, we got to talk, laugh and, I still have my pajamas on". I said "me too"! We laughed so hard!
Yes, true friends are a blessing in life! And I should know, I have many of them!

A best friend
is always there,
whether you need advice,
or a pep talk,
or even a shoulder to cry on.
A best friend
listens with her heart
and is always honest with you,
even though the truth
may not be
what you want to hear.
A best friend
knows all your secrets,
understands your fears
shares your dreams.
A best friend
never stops believing in you
even if you give up
on yourself.
you are
that kind of friend
to me.
And no matter what happens,
you always will be.
You are my best friend
my forever friend.
