real friends

  1. I just received this from a good friend. I would like to change the title to REAL FRIENDS

    GIRLFRIENDS
    Girlfriends bring casseroles and scrub your bathroom when you are sick.
    Girlfriends keep your children and keep your secrets.
    Girlfriends give advice when you ask for it. Sometimes you take it,
    sometimes you don't.
    Girlfriends don't always tell you that you're right, but they're
    usually honest.
    Girlfriends still love you, even when they don't agree with your
    choices.
    Girlfriends might send you a birthday card, but they might not. It does
    not matter in the least.
    Girlfriends laugh with you, and you don't need canned jokes to start
    the laughter.
    Girlfriends pull you out of jams.
    Girlfriends don't keep a calendar that lets them know who hosted the
    other last.
    Girlfriends are there for you, in an instant and truly, when the hard
    times come.
    Girlfriends listen when you lose a job or a husband.
    Girlfriends listen when your children break your heart.
    Girlfriends listen when your parents' minds and bodies fail.
    My girlfriends bless my life. Once we were young, with no idea of the
    incredible joys or the incredible sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we
    know how much we would need each other. Pass this on to your girlfriends.
    Let them know how much you appreciate them.
    Have a great day!

    My best friend is a nurse midwife who lives 2 miles from me. We've been best friends since 8th grade. She called last night and offered to come over Saturday (while I'm sleeping for my 3 12 hr. night shifts) and finish painting my kitchen for me! Is that a friend or what???!?!

    My Dtr. came home from college May 3rd and started painting my kitchen and hasn't finished yet. I have been unable to do much except work due to a bum hip (which has gotten better these past 2 weeks) this summer. The kitchen and dining room have been unusable all summer, and my friend misses coming over and having Hubby cook for us! I love my friend!!!!!

    Soooooo true.......it deserved to be repeated, so I brought it down to another post below the original one. Love it! Thanks for sharing it, and you are right........it deserves to be titled REAL TRUE FRIENDS.....MALE OR FEMALE....cause I've had some MALE friends just as nice to me in years past. :kiss

    GREAT post! And real friends keep your secrets. Real friends can see you at your worst...and still see the best in you! Real friends never have to be asked..."tell me the truth". Real friends see you in a situation...and say what they think! Real friends will pull you off your high horse...and let you know...they're not impressed..:chuckle! Real friends are those who say they'e willing to help, and do. No charge...no payback needed or desired. What they do...they do out of love....not obligation, or for show!
