True Friendship – Sort of my way

Okay guys, this one is more like me…
True Friendship"
(With none of that Sissy Crap!!!!)

Are you tired of those sissy "friendship" poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?

Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.

You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card-

just the stone cold truth of our friendship.

1 When you are sad
— I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against the sorry bastard who made you that way.

2. When you are blue
— I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile
— I will know you finally got laid.  
4. When you are scared
— I will rag on you about it every chance I get. 
5. When you are worr ied
— I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you quit whining. 
6. When you are confused
— I will use little words.  

7. When you are sick — Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don't want to catch whatever you have.
8. When you fall — I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.

9. This is my oath…..
I pledge it to the end. "Why?" you may ask ,  "Because you are my friend".
Friendship is like peeing your pants: everyone can see it, but only you can feel the true warmth.

 And remember …. when life hands you Lemons, get some tequila and salt and call me.

One of the most valuable gifts we are given in this life is the gift of friendship.   My mother taught me that lesson.   Her theory was there were no strangers, only friends we had not made yet.  Growing up in a military family, it was vital lesson to learn.  New places and new experiences forced us to always be open the experience of new friends.
As I become a more mature woman, the more I understand what my mother meant about the value of our friends.  They are our guiding stars, our therapists, our encouragement and our strength.  They are the ones who are not afraid to tell us when we are wrong and our are biggest cheerleaders when we are right.
They understand our joys, our heartaches, our insecurities, what makes us laugh and what makes us cry.
And we are the same for them.  This is what makes us friends.  This is what makes them invaluable in our lives. 
So embrace those friends, hold them as close to you as you can and don't let them go.  Celebrate them and celebrate the relationship you have with them.  It is a cherished gift.
