True Friends

This is a tribute to true friends. They are the ones who stand by you and support you. They are the ones who would fight for you when you are wrongly accused.

They call you to see how you are or just to see if you are ok. They care. They comment on your blog page even if it takes a little more time because they want you to know they are reading it and that you are important to them. That your thoughts are important to them.

I love it when my friends call just to see what I'm doing. I love those conversations that start out, "So, what cha doin?"

I do not know what I would do with out my dear friends. The hardest thing is to find out that someone you thought was a friend, really isn't. That someone claims to be a friend but naturally jumps to the wrong conclusion or doesn't believe you when you say something. With friends like that, who needs enemies? *smirk*

I have had friends like that in the past. People who I have loved and then turn around and think the worst of you. People I have trusted.

Well, it has taken me a while to have learned who those people are who would do anything for me. I love those ladies dearly and I'll tell you what, there aren't that many. They are few and far between like rare, precious stones.

Some of you I know very well. I talk to daily. Others, are here in cyberspace. I can't wait to read your next posts and I can't wait to see what you have said on mine. Thank you so much for your friendships. Thank you for your support and love and understanding these last few years.

I hope that I am always someone you can count on.
