The Letter T

T
True Friend


A true friend sticks with you through the good times and the bad, a true friend will say what you might not want to hear, but a true friend won't stay mad...
A true friend looks from the inside out and doesn't judge by a glance, a true friend will stick by you even when you take a stance...
A true friend loves you for who you are not what you could be, a true friend should be cherished cause' few exist you see...
A friend to love with... A friend to play with... A friend to be with... A friend to stay with...

I am lucky enough to have a true friend. Oh I have plenty of friends and I have people that I thought were friends but we didn’t end up on the same page. This blog is dedicated to my true friend Mina. We met when we were in our first year of high school and have managed over the course of time to keep the friendship. We certainly did have our moments and there were a few years where we didn’t talk due to miscommunication between the two of us as well as some hateful rumours and plain jealousy from outside. We mended the fences over a year ago and last summer we spent a week together reconnecting and catching up on everything that had changed within our lives. We allowed the truth to come to the surface, gave understanding and acceptance for and with each other and felt the bond between us grow even stronger. I have to admit, I unloaded more on her than she did on me, but for the first time in a long time I was able to be myself and not someone others wanted me to be. I know that if I fall Mina will not turn her back on me, but will either lie beside me until I can find the energy to get back up or she’ll pull me up with encouragement and giggles. A few have said that they were my friends, but when I needed the helping hand in bad times they turned away and could not even face me. That’s not even worthy of being called a friend. My life has been so much more enriched by our friendship. Thanks for being my true friend Mina. I love you!!

Thanks for the tribute my friend and for making me cry this morning.I have to agree that our summer together allowed us the time we needed to remind us the wonderful friendship that has always been there. I love you too ♥

True friends are hard to come by. Both must be open and caring to let it grow from there as well as...ready for the keyword? NURTURING! Yes, that's it. If one person doesn't nurture the friendship, how can it grow stronger? It can't. That's my problem, I'm so willing to nurture friendhips, but people are just way to busy for me. :(

I love friendship posts. My very best friend is also related to me, so she can't get rid of me that easily.
