My daughter and her best friend have been friends since the 1st grade.  They have had enormous amounts of good times and one really big fight that lasted all but five minutes.  I love the laughter and smiles in the house or car whenever they are together.  I am going to miss them tremendously as they go off to different colleges miles and miles away.  I know they will always be close thanks to Facebook, tweets and texts.  This week I’m thinking of the greatest luxury of all – True Friendship.

A true friend will tell you when your hair color isn’t right, will tell you when you’re dressing too dowdy, will tell you that you don’t need to lose 5 pounds to look great, but will remove the bread basket at lunch anyway and will go to the movie you want to see even when they’ve seen it already.

A true friend isn’t afraid to tell you the truth, but has the common sense to wait a little while.

A true friend will help you laugh when all you want to do is cry.

I love the quote by Marlena Dietrich who said, ” It’s the friends you can call at 4 a.m. that matter.” How true is that!!!!??????!!!!!!!!

A true friend knows that chips and salsa for breakfast are totally acceptable breakfast foods!

A true friend is being with them and not feeling the need to talk all the time, even though you do.

I have one friend who thinks that true friendship is someone who will wash your floor for you when you’re sick.  I Agree.

A true friend is someone who will hold your hair back when you’re feeling ill, like Carrie in Sex in the City!

A true friend doesn’t think a 10 hour road trip is too long to visit our daughters at College.

A true friend is someone who when a nurse is taking you into the doctor’s office for a simple biopsy and says to your friend, who drove you to the appointment, that it will be a couple of hours if they would like to come back.  My friend says to the nurse, “I’m not going anywhere, I’ll be waiting right here.” is true friendship!

” A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out. ”   Walter Winchell
