A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same. ~ Elbert Hubbard
You, the one who has seen me at my best and worst, and still stuck around. You, the one who I’ve partied with, shared a house with, cooked with, ate with, went on a crazy one-day road trip with, talked to, confided in, fought with, laughed with. It’s been more than 10 years but it doesn’t feel that long because when you have a good time together, time flies. I know we don’t see each other as much now (and very soon, not even as little as we do already, because you’re moving 4 hours drive away) but you are one of my best friends. I hope you know that, D.
I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar. ~ Robert Brault
You, the one I met pretty late in life, you are my unexpected friend. Our only commonality then was becoming mothers at almost the same time. You, who have commiserated with me for hours over toddler difficulties and never once told me to shut up. You, who bring me nourishment at a time I needed it, both physically and emotionally. You, who brought me cake when I said I needed some, taking time out from your busy life to be there for me. Thank you, L, I’m glad I met you when I did.
It takes a long time to grow an old friend. ~ John Leonard
You, the one I’ve known nearly all my life (over 30 years!) you have the title of ‘oldest friend’ in my life. The years we were not in touch or together or talking may be far greater than the years we did spend picking up where we left off, but our friendship is something I’ve never questioned or doubted. I’m so glad we found time to reconnect these past few years. Here’s to another 30 or more years, M.
I’ll lean on you and you lean on me and we’ll be okay. ~ Dave Mathews Band
You, the one I’ve never met in person. We connected immediately when we read each others’ words. It’s like we were separated at birth (only that I’m years older than you). Through this keyboard and screen, we have formed a friendship that goes beyond distance and time differences. You, who I know I will meet someday and we will hug and talk like we’ve known each other all our lives, because it sure feels that way, K.
And yes, you all survived the great Facebook friend list cleanse of 2012.
Who’s your best friend?
