Isn’t it true that in our moments of adversity, is when we truly find out who our real friends are. Numbers in friendship isn’t what’s important. It’s quality . . . not quantity. And, that also goes for the length of time we have known a particular friend. It’s not the length of time that matters, but it’s the impression, impact, heart and compassion, that defines a true friend.
I can honestly say that I’ve been blessed with some living angels in my life. These are real, true friendships that have lifted me up when I hit rock bottom and shined a light in my moments of darkness. I’ve also learned the hard way about friendship. I’ve learned that no matter how much time you have spent together, memories that were made along the way, milestones that were shared and laughter that was had . . . if betrayal shows it’s ugly face in a friendship . . . that is a bridge that should be burned and never crossed again. What was thought to be a friend – never really was. A friend should never betray another friend. PERIOD. I am grateful everyday for these angels who have blessed my life. Friendships of true, loyal, graceful character.
