How Many Friends Do You Have?

We all have so many acquaintances, but how many real friends do you have? I'm not talking about a friend, I'm talking about a Friend. You know, the person who has seen all the skeletons in your closet and loves you anyway. The person who knew you "way back when;" who knows where you came from and knows whom you have become. The person who knows where all the bodies are buried. (Heck, she might even have helped bury a couple of them.) The person who would drop everything and fly to your house at a moment's notice simply because you say, "I need you here." The person to whom you would never tell even a little white lie.

I am so lucky. I actually have two such friends. And one of them arrived today for a visit. She is such a good friend, I would actually put my blog on hold to spend time with her. So...I won't be posting for a week. I'll be back next Friday.

Please stay safe and have a wonderful week, whatever you are doing.

I know the 100+ friends I have on Facebook are not the kind of friends you are talking about. They are precious and few. Have a great week.

Yep - I'd put my blog on hold for my friend, too! I have TWO friends that are special just like yours - one is my sister ;-)
Have fun!!! See you again soon!

This topic made me reflect very hard. Because life is complicated sometimes. Real FRIENDS...
One is with god.
One is far far far away.
One has changed.
One is close by.
Have a great visit with your FRIEND

Remember the old Girl Scout song?
Make new friends
But keep the old
One is silver
And the other gold.

Enjoy your gold friend.

I'm sure you two are having a grand time. Enjoy!

I remember that old saying, "At the end of your life, you can count the # of real friends on one hand." When I was you, I didn't believe that. I thought I would have many true friends. But now, at 53, I guess I have ONE. Many very close aquaintances through work, but work is the tie that binds.

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

I have one of them......just one! She knows me better than I know myself. Too bad she's now 487 miles away :(

Enjoy your time.

Enjoy each other, Carolyn.
