my kind of friends

19 Dec

I saw this magnet today:quote

it says: ‘Friendship is when people know all about you but like you anyway.’ ~ Anonymous.

This holiday season I am feeling so blessed by my relationships. My cup runneth over with wonderful people.

And so I write a list about friendship.

Have the kind of friends who know all about you and like you because of what they know.

Have the kind of friends who you are happy to see every day. When you see them coming, you find yourself smiling, because here comes someone who loves you. Sure you have hiccups, but the care you have for each other gets you through.

Have the kind of friends that even if you don’t see them for months you pick up right were you were. Sometimes time or distance can strain a relationship, but deep in your heart you are connected as if you just hung out yesterday.

Have the kind of friends who you can call/text with a random question and they answer without need for explanation. Sometimes you just need to know what kind of shoe you preferred to wear in high school, that’s not something you can google that’s where the text a friend feature comes in.

Have the kind of friends who you can laugh with for hours. Laughter is the best medicine. You know it’s been a good day when your abs hurt from laughing.

Have the kind of friends that you can be quiet with. Nobody pushing to ‘fake it’.

Have the kind of friends who you can call crying and will drop what they’re doing to listen.

Have the kind of friends that you can get excited and loud with.

Have the kind of friends who don’t always get why a certain thing is exciting or important to you, but indulges you and never makes you feel stupid. We all have our ‘things’ wouldn’t it be great if everyone could feel supported to be themselves in their own quirky way? Yeah, that’s the kind of friend to be.

Have the kind of friends that you would want with you if you had to wait in line all day at the DMV. That’s right, the ultimate of people watching experiences and uninspiring decor, would you have the whole waiting room laughing on the floor, or dancing the macerana?

Have the kind of friends who get along with your other loved ones. It’s good to have the BFF’s get along, that way the more the merrier!

I am full of gratitude to have these kinds of friends.



PS What would you add to the list?

    In connection to #2… Have friends who are happy to see YOU coming, just as happy as you are to see them.

    Have friends who can remember for you how sacred, silly, holy and great you are when you have forgotten.

    Have friends who will give you fruit loops and m&m’s for breakfast even though they know it’s not good for you, simply because you asked. And have friends who sometimes say “No,” because they know when to say “Yes,” and when to say “No.”
