Just a quick thought before I leave for work this morning

 

 

I’ve heard it said that a real friend …

 

* is considerate

* is patient

* is independent

* is loyal

* makes you feel less alone

* can stand the test of time

* does not make promises impossible to keep

* has a sense of humor

* is trustworthy

* listens well

* laughs often

* tells great stories

* has charisma

* keeps an open mind

* has tact

* can share emotional and intellectual conversation

* is willing to exchange ideas

* doesn’t say I told you so

* often offers to lend a hand

* accepts you as you are

* is available and accessible

* loves to come out and play, sometimes till 4 am

* is happy for your good fortune

* is concerned about your misfortunes

* isn’t jealous

* offers emotional intimacy

* encourages your creativity

* will sing to you if asked

* shares your interests

* sees beyond your flaws

* believes in humanity

* respects you right to your own opinion

* shares similar values

* has knack for letting you know that you are special

* and much more

If all of this is true then I have one and I am one. For this I am grateful.

 

This is a quick list and in no way complete; please feel free to add to it in the comments.

 

* Viarbooba- I think patientence and consideration are a huge part of friendship.

 

* SloMo- I've heard it said that a real friend...  pimps the mess out of you in their journal.

 

* Freepeace- A real friend is also brutally honest.  Whoops, so much for tact.

 

* Penny- Will help you hide the body.  Just kidding, kinda :)

 

*  Coy- A real friend may have your journal on entry alert. They may see all of your pre edit bloopers, but they see past your mistakes and come to leave a comment anyway.

 

* Tracey-Friends are people who help us cope with life and you have greatly helped me in mine. Thank you.

Penny- Did you mean cover the body as in the back & belly when you are sleeping? Or did you mean… Nah, I don’t even want to know. :-)

SloMo is a P-I-M-P  Thanks again for including me in your Pimptress of Ceremony entry. You do have a unique way of putting things. I really feel privileged to be part of the J-land community and truly appreciate your colorful welcome. (Mostly purple if I recall)

Freepeace- hmmm… brutally honest, it does have its place in the closest of friendships. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, we all know what a busy girl you have been!

Viarbooba- I agree about patience and consideration both being a big part of friendship. And yes, having one real friend that loves you unconditionally is a lot to be thankful for.
