Sometimes I sit and think about the friends I have. I have a lot of different ones and I am so grateful. I have people that I talk to online daily, but I don't see often. I have people that talk to not so often, but I know that no matter what, I count on them. Then I have the people that I talk to constantly and I know they to will be there for me no matter what.
I think sometimes we take our friends for granted. Sometimes we think that it's our place to make their lives better or make decisions for them. It's not. All we can do as friends is sit back, listen and be a backbone for them. I like to look at a friendship as extended family. I would like to think that I can call any of my friends at any given time and say "hey, I'm in a bind" or "hey, I'm upset, I need you right now" and they are they for me. I would also like to think that they could do the same for me. Just like family would.
I also like to think that any secrets you have between you and your friends you should take to your grave. You should never ever tell secrets that are in trusted to you. You should never ever sleep with you girlfriend's bf or ex bf for that matter. Again, you just need to treat them like family.
I have a lot of guy friends too. I am not trying to leave you all out. I just don't myself sleeping with your ex's or currents. :) I do still stand by the being there for you and the keeping secrets part. I don't know, I guess the whole point in this blog is that I promise to each of you that I will try to be a better friend. I do try to there for you all whenever you need an ear. I would like to think that I have always been there. I will do my best to always be there for you in the future. I love each of you so very much. I haven't known you all for too long, but I do know that I care for you all like family. I promise to you that whatever you tell me, I will hold it near and dear to me and not share with anyone if you tell me not to. I promise that if you ever need anything, I will do all I can to help you with it.

there is a reason we all have found one another.
it's a circle, as long as we all hold hands, what we have stays with us and inside us.
You are a beautiful woman and an amazing friend!
I love you!
