Friends, how many of us have them?

A selfie after a show in Spain.  I thought my make-up was good that night and I happen to look sorta serious.

We love our friends.  We love sharing with them and laughing the evenings away together.  Nothing compares to this for making the heart happy!  In fact, it has been said that laughter is the best medicine.  I believe this.  So, I always want to be extra lenient and forgiving with my friends and I hope they always will be this way with me also.

But once a discussion that wasn’t so pleasant has come between you, things can change.  And after you call and call, with no return of your call, you start to wonder if things can ever be the way they once were. This is a heartbreaking place to be.

For me, the door will always be open to the possibility of improvement.  Friends are that valuable.

But there is something that friend needs to know, as I patiently wait on their call- which will only be about a minute long and full of excuses, but will still brighten my whole freaking day, because I think you’re wonderful.   This, however, also makes ME very special too.  Because I can see what’s great about you and can deal with what stinks about you!  That’s not everybody.  Not everybody is banging your door down to do that.  That’s me.  You must recognize this, quickly.

And you must know that you will receive a tongue-lashing and an in-depth explanation of what you have done, from my perspective.  You will have to listen.

Now, can you handle that?  That is the true test of friendship.

Got something to say?  Drop me a line…

  1. I am starting to wonder if we are sisters from other parents. LOL. I have been editing a blog for days now on this topic. I didn’t want to write it while I was still hurt and angry. With fresh perspective, I will be able to get down the points that need to be said. The question, in my case, will be ‘Can she handle it?’

    Well said, Sara DC! Well said.

    1. Woo! Rita, that’s going to be very heartfelt. I can tell already. I went back and forth on whether I should or should not, with this one too. So, I say do it. And let me tell you, there have been many moments when I have said to Michael, “boy, that Rita was right when she said people are funny.” He has no idea what I’m talking about, but I still continue to quote you anyway. Lol.
