The Journey Continues - A True Friend

A True Friend is someone we have all wanted and needed in our lives; A True Friend is someone who will be there for you, not only in times of struggle, but in times of great happiness.


A True Friend is there for you unconditionally.


In my lifetime, I've met a lot of people; ones I thought would be in my life forever, and others I thought would dwindle away.  The funny thing is, is the ones I thought would dwindle away, have turned out to be the ones that have been in my life forever.  The ones I thought would be there forever have dwindled away.  Funny how that works!


The beauty of it, is although the ones who have dwindled away, are still there in my mind as a friend.  You see, no matter what type of friends we have, they will be there in our memory, so they really don't ever leave.  This is a comforting feeling actually, as at times we could find ourselves missing someone who has left, but it is our memories of them that bring comfort, especially if you find yourself missing them.


In my life, I've had people decide to not remain in contact with me; life gets busy, or they just decided they wanted their circle of friends to be ones who they shared everything in common with.  Whatever the reason, I've appreciated their friendship no matter the length of time we had together.


A True Friend will always be there for you, it may not be in the physical form, but in our memories, our life lessons, in pictures, or in cards/written notes.  I am forever grateful for every friend that has come into my life, without them I wouldn't be who I am today.  I've cherished every moment, good and bad, and I've come out of it a better person.


Good Vibes Only!
