That’s What Friends Do.

True friends are those who lift you up when your heart’s wings forget how to fly. – Anonymous

True friends are very special, and very rare.  I can count on one hand, the number of true friends I have.  I have lots of acquaintances, and I have lots of friends, sure, but true friends are a different breed. True friends are there for you, they’ll drop everything for you, and when you’re down, they lift that's what friends doyou up. That’s what friends do.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that my regular friends are bad people, or that I can’t count on them.  They’re great, and if I asked a favor of them, they’d gladly do it. But I wouldn’t ask them because they’re not my true friends.  It’s hard to put words to it, but your true friends are the ones that get you.  You don’t have to censure your thoughts (or your mouth) around them. You may not agree about everything, but in the end, that doesn’t matter.  You’re still there for one another, no matter what.  Why? Because that’s what friends do.

I’m also not a true friend to a lot of people.  Don’t get me wrong, I would do just about anything for anybody that I consider a friend, but I don’t have that connection that I have with some people.  With some people, you just click.  It’s as if you share a brain or something.  For them, I would lay down my life.  I would give them my last crust of bread, or my last dime, and I know that they would do the same.  Why? Because that’s what friends do.  I only hope that you have friends like that in your life.
